One way to get more time in your life

Last week I quit Facebook.  It felt odd initially but it is now 11 days since I began the challenge and it feels great.

Liberating even. I have more time.

I joined 99 Days of Freedom, developed by a creative agency in the Netherlands. The premise is to establish how you feel when you don’t use Facebook.
99 Days of Freedom isn’t an app like “Anti-Social” or “Self-Control” that physically block your access to Facebook, it is an internal commitment within yourself that you will avoid Facebook for 99 days. So far so good.
Participants get their own website saying: “Joanna is enjoying some well deserved time off from Facebook. Joanna will be back in… only 93 days 11 hours 44 minutes and 10 seconds.” – See more at: http://www.whistlerquestion.com/opinion/columnists/non-toxic-living-one-simple-way-to-get-more-time-in-your-life-1.1308158#sthash.Pj36cxTt.dpuf

Benefits of a social media break

Yesterday I decided I would take August off social media. Facebook in particular. Is it okay that I am over it?

I’m not alone either, whilst researching to write this article I discovered others who are doing this and actually there’s a group in the Netherlands who set up 99 Days of Freedom. I was intrigued and liked the idea of this. Long story short. .

I joined. I’m in. I must admit it feels a little scary, read further down the article to learn why.

How much is ENOUGH?

How much is ENOUGH?

 

over spending? Debt hangover? Consumerism hangover? Gratitude is the antidote. www.ActualOrganics.com

We live in an age of excess but it doesn’t seem to be making us happy.

The trouble with seeking to have the latest fasion or phone is that within six months there’s a new “hottest” item.

 
Relentless advertisements play on our insecurities to suggest that one hasn’t got enough, or the right stuff, in an effort to make one buy more. This toxic cycle does little for one’s self-esteem, bank balance or the environment.
Just one click at an online store and in a few days the latest item (wrapped in plastic usually) is at your door.

buy stuff they don't need

 

I have been simplifying recently. Amazingly, now, I can look in a magazine or at an advert and admire the shoes or gadget without feeling the need to have it. I have enough, and am enough, without constant new stuff. It is freeing.

Is it time to draw a line under your “wants,” work out what you actually “need”, how much is enough, and sort through what you have and then simplify?
