I woke up on the morning of Sunday, April 29, with my husband ceremoniously handing me my iPad and my iPhone. All was right in my world.
I switched both on to find only one missed text message from a girlfriend actually asking if I’d managed to switch off.
On Twitter, I was greeted by lovely Tweets welcoming me back.
I’d made it. Twenty-four (plus) hours without so much as a Tweet, Facebook update, Instagram photo or blog post. I set about making up for lost time 😉
To bring you to speed, I’d agreed to go cold turkey on all my electronic loves on April 28 as part of the Switch off to Kangaroo Island campaign.
I kind of wouldn’t have minded being on Kangaroo Island for the switch off but, alas, if that wasn’t meant to be then I would have to keep myself VERY busy.
My electronic detox needed to be as pain-free as possible. Such a tactic would surely prevent breaking out in cold sweats or getting the shakes.
As luck would have it, staying busy proved VERY easy to do … given that the very next day I was heading to Sydney for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.
So much to do. So little time.
Let me take you through my switch off day in photos. When I realised that there was still one gadget – my camera – at my disposal, I went a bit nutso.
As you do.
Mission accomplished. I’m quite proud of myself, actually. I may just make this a
regular semi-regular once a year thing … oh, who am I kidding? No-one 😉
Did you switch off? Could you? Or are you really disciplined at regularly taking time out and switching off?
PS. It’s not too late to enter to win a trip to Kangaroo Island where, if I were you, I’d be switching off the moment I landed. Click here for details.
