Just a heads up. I am trying to better manage my personal time as I continue to work on reducing stress, recovering from this year, and recovering my health which is proving to take drastic effort and steps (and lots of saying no). And in that vein, while I am a slave to my writing, I do not want to be a slave to my phone or computer.
In order to moderate that, I have put my phone in Do Not Disturb mode, I have turned off WP notifications on my phone, and I am going to be logging out of social media periodically to make it easier to resist the urge.
I still need to write, sing, play, read. I still appreciate the amazing support. But, if I am slow to reply, if I don’t reply, if I turn off comments, it’s not because I’m not grateful, it’s because I’m working hard to keep life balanced. Just with all things, too much can be unhealthy.
I appreciate your understanding. I’m not going anywhere at the moment. I’m just being more conscious of how, how much, and when I engage and making sure it is not interfering with the life and personal work I am doing away from the screen.
