Every Friday, I disconnect from all social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.) to reconnect with myself, my family and friends. I'm not going to lie, it's a challenge. But I take this time to do things that I may sometimes push to the side because I get sucked into a social media trance. Like reading for instance. I love books, magazines, blogs you name it. So on Freedom Friday, I catch up on some reading. Do you follow any blogs that you’ve neglected? Head on over and give them some love. Some of my favorite blogs: Downward Daily Dog, Yoga Dork, Daily Garnish and Tammy Ramirez.
Another way to reconnect with your mind is to do a writing challenge. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the guys over at Creative Copy Challenge. Every Monday and Thursday, they give out 10 words and it’s up to you to write a short story. Once you’re done, post it and read other people’s creations. The website is super supportive, no mean girls (or guys) over there. If you have kids, you can turn it into a family affair and write a short story together using the words.
OM the moment for your mind and think outside of the box and use your newfound time on Friday's to reconnect with things or people you love.
Freedom Friday starts at midnight. I hope you join me and let me know how it goes for you in the comments below. See you Saturday!
