I think that changed this morning. I hope it did, anyway. Did some significant birdsite feed trimming, and am going to follow up with heavy keyword muting. I subbed to some legit RSS news feeds. I dumped my politics birdsite list, and replaced it with local news. I set some daily limits on my phone.
We’ll see how it goes.
@lakhesis good luck!
I went to Detroit, ate less and better food, and didn't really go on Instagram at all. But the minute I got home, I went back to eating junk food and Instagramming.
Clearly I'm "bored" at home 😅
@kai Hmm. The thing that I find most relaxing about vacation is the break in routine. You can do that at home if you work at it - check out local activities, parks, etc that you may not have looked into yet. Or just pick a day to spend on yourself. Get your stuff done ahead of time so you can relax a bit.
It might not always get you that vacation feel, but it might work sometimes.
@lakhesis interesting idea
@kai Being able to decide in the moment what I want to do without having to care about how that will adversely affect the rest of the day feels super vacation-y to me. But that’s because I’ve got 2 kids.
Vacations are personal, so it will probably be different for you. But you might be able to come up with something that does the trick for you.
