This device is the first for her. I was thinking about her screen-use and wondering about how best to limit it and I had an epiphany. I, like so many around me, am completely distracted from the here and now by the damn illuminated rectangle in my hand – it became clear that in order for me to feel right about limiting Lucy’s tablet use I needed to limit my own.
It started immediately.
The relief was immediate.
So here goes!
30 minutes twice a day on the illuminated screen, plus one day a week for work/sales.
It’s a social experiment I’ll be undertaking this week, I am calling it Limited Access:
So far I have spent a few focused intervals wondering how best to spend this super limited timeframe. What is most important to me?
Spent time writing in my journal with pen and ink, my favorite new drawing tool a Quill pen and india ink. Fun to write with too cause you gotta keep dipping – slowing – Thank you kindly for that inspiration Dan Blakeslee!
Enjoying the moment, spending more time with my kids and hubby – like really WITH them. And checking OUT of all the spinning whirling craziness happening out there in cyber land. Upon initial contemplation what I came up with as ‘most important’ is accountability. So I’ll be using this platform keep myself accountable and to post my findings.
