Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, even you.
We are so engrossed in our social life that at times we lose ourselves. We forget who we are, we are diverted from our dreams, goals and so many things. We completely lose ourselves and feel lost.
Don’t you at times feel irritated by your unknowing habit of scrolling and time and again unlocking your phone even when it’s been just minutes that you kept it aside. It’s like we all have become so immune to that devil, that we have become zombies, can’t live without it, can’t eat without it, can’t do anything without it.
But sorry, I have had enough. I seriously have this feeling to unplug my self from this social media havoc and get a break. I want to just get rid of it for some time. And so I have decided I am taking off from all social media sites and apps in the month of May. Specifically, while Ramadan is on which is probably from 6th May to 5th or 6th June.
Disconnect from technology and reconnect with each other.
I really need this break, I need to know myself, I want to take the opportunity of the month of Ramadan to reflect upon a lot of things. It will be a complete detox for my body as well as the soul.
The question now arises is if I am taking a break from blogging as well. Yes, I am. I know it’s a risk since I have invested in a domain and web-hosting and launched my own website and it’s only been like what a month I guess. But to be honest, I feel I did a mistake of rushing into something I had not even planned properly i.e this A to Z blog and I could have taken time to plan my content and blog properly and launch it whenever I was ready.
I am not completely regretting it because I learned something through this A to Z blog post and that is what I take I should finish it, I should stick to it. Like I could have left it in between but I didn’t I am irregular at times but I do make it a point to catch up.
Anyway, the whole point is, I also need this break to reflect on my blog as well, how should I take it further and much more. I need a break from being available online all the time and just be me and take this opportunity to discover a new me, to re-built my confidence and recharge my soul as well.
Dare to unplug. Go off the grid. Give yourself permission to say yes to your wellbeing.
Have you ever taken a break from social media or anything that was making you feel uncomfortable with your own self?
