Eight Hours Phone Free

Hello! Happy mid-week you guys, ya’ll, friends?! What do ya’ll say? I’ve been meaning to pay attention to how I address a group of friends or my family, and have kind of forgotten to notice what rolls off the tongue…ANY WAY. Last night I came home to discover that I had left my phone charger at one of the houses I nanny at. I had about 25% battery left. My initial reaction was panic, but it was a quiet panic. I could have gone over to a friend’s house or to my brother or sister’s to charge my beloved phone, but I didn’t. I decided to wait it out until today at Noon when I would be back with my charger.

See, I’ve been thinking anyway about how much technology affects good, solid sleep. Lately, when I wake up, I am SO groggy and my eyes are TIRED. I’ve gotten into the worst habit of falling deep down into the Instagram/Facebook hole right before I turn off the light. Sometimes I don’t even look at a book anymore before bedtime. Now, that is sad ya’ll! Are you guys in the same boat??

Amie Valpone of The Healthy Apple stated recently in one of her IG posts, that she doesn’t spend a lot of time on social media for adrenal, thyroid, and hormonal reasons, and maybe there’s some truth to that? I don’t know, I haven’t asked Amie or done the research behind that, but I do know that I noticed just a little bit of a refreshed/rested feeling when I got up this morning. I think I stopped scrolling through all social media around 8PM last night, btw. So yeah, I think I’m gonna set a curfew for myself with social media. Maybe 8:00/8:30PM? I’ll report back.

For some reason, watching Bloodline on Netflix on your laptop in bed before bedtime, doesn’t seem to have the same affect!? šŸ˜‰ With a show like Bloodline, you would think it would!

Have a good one ya’ll…

Ellen
