When I moved to a new flat, I thought I would be a day or two without Internet, but certainly not over a week. Which was the case. This was terrible timing for launching Lumos Your Life, keeping on schedule with blogging and FabulosiTEA, and revising for online business school. But in the end, I learned that even with such pressing commitments, it was totally doable. I learned a lot of other things too, like:
I don’t get as much email as I think I do.
It’s okay not to know things sometimes.
Sometimes finding things out without the Internet is more fun, or more lasting, like pouring over a map to find a street rather than Google Maps-ing it.
When I don’t have Internet, I am on my computer less, so my eyes are more rested, and I sleep better.
Without Internet, I read more.
I love 8tracks playlists, but without Internet I enjoy my own music more.
I watch things more mindfully, because I have to download them ahead of time.
When the Internet came back, I kept opening my laptop without agenda to combat boredom.
The Internet simplifies a lot of things. But it is also a vast distraction and should be approached with awareness.
