Two great links, both related to my most recent post:
“18 Things Everyone Should Start Making Time For Again” by Brianna Wiest
2. Savoring time to do nothing.
8. Disconnecting from technology frequently enough that we won’t be anxious and feeling like we’re missing something when we try to do so for an extended period of time.
“Thoughts on Introversion and the Internet” by Kerri (aka Your Wishcake)
For an introvert, socializing can be draining. When it comes down to it, the internet is all about socialization these days, no matter how you look at it. I absolutely love the internet, but I’m tired of always feeling like I’m at the end of my rope because of all the noise I’m adding to my day. There are sometimes a hundred tiny interactions I have with people throughout the day, and even when they’re good things, happy conversations, encouraging words, beautiful photos, inspiring posts…it still drains me.
I need to be able to disappear from a social network without having to worry about what it will do to my stats or online presence.
I struggle a lot when I know I’m capable of doing something great, but doing it wouldn’t be great for me.
