No Computer Day

For the past three weeks or so, I've been taking a break from the computer on Sundays.

And you know what? It's really nice.

I blog.  I love to read blogs. I do facebook. I'm forever researching health and nutrition online. I check my email. I do online banking. The internet is my favorite cookbook.

I end up spending a considerable amount of time on the computer during the week.

After a while, it's just too much. My brain gets cloudy from information overload.

Stepping away from the computer on Sundays has been really refreshing to me. I get up and read God's Word, get ready to go to Fellowship and make sure food is prepared, eat breakfast, go to Fellowship, come home, usually take a nap and then get up and go to a church leadership meeting, come home, eat supper and go to bed. Even though it's still a busy day, it's a peaceful one.

Taking a break from the computer works for me!

I agree. Sometimes we need a break for our computers, and I need to start working on doing a computer free day. Thanks for sharing! :0)

I fasted from most computer work and blogging over Lent and, when I stuck to it, was all the better for it as a Mom, Wife, Homemaker, etc. Now that my spring contracts have ended and I don't have to be on the computer for paid employment daily, I think I might take your fast-for-a-day computer idea. Blogging and communing through blogosphere can be so addicting. Thanks for the reminder.

Have a blessed day!
