My Media Detox

Day 2 of my media detox has come to a close. If you want to know how I feel, I tried to find a quote or write one on peace but I wasn’t resonating with anything but this picture. It describes exactly how I feel. I feel like a chilled glass of wine looking at the ocean, perhaps the French Riviera with the wind blowing on a sandy shore.

I cannot emphasize enough the peace I feel. I know my life revolves a lot around sports schedules, especially football but it has been so wonderful not to have a schedule for sports, news, or my shows. All I hear is music and silence. It is refreshing and I’m loving it.

I love my friends and appreciate every follower on social media but it is also wonderful to take a break and not be on any social media platform. This is a first for me to detox from all platforms.

So what have I been doing? I’ve read so far a lot. Downloaded the Kindle app (since I don’t have a Kindle) and started a book highly recommended by a friend “Experiencing God”. I also downloaded a daily devotion, which I enjoy called “He Whispers Your Name”. I’m working on finding a self-help book to read.

I’ve also finished my vision board, my goals, my dreams for this year. I watched my church online. I’ve cooked, discovered I love my besties collard greens, worked out, drank lots of tea, and started a new diet which is an old one. I’ve spoken to all of my 5 Confidants aka tribe members, which one invited me to Columbia (the country not Tennessee 😁) after learning I’m applying for my passport this month. Life is already getting exciting.

I’m calm and very happy. I highly recommend this to anyone. Sometimes we just need to shut off the world and make our world as we need it. Creating space for tranquility, creativity, and nourishing our soul is priceless. It’s so empowering to say this isn’t serving me and walk away.
