Why Going Offline Is Good For You

From time to time -and by time to time I mean rarely- I take a few days to a week and go almost completely offline. Sometimes it’s through no fault of my own {the environment I’m in} and sometimes it’s my doing in order to unwind. I have done this more than a handful of times throughout my blogging career, and each time I come back to it I feel refreshed and ready to work with excitement.

 

Being online all day and night can really start to dull your shine after a while. I know first hand. At all hours of the night I’m checking my latest blog comments, falling into the black hole of Instagram, and replying to comments/ emails. It’s exhausting after a while. Sometimes you just have to cut out the noise, you know? When I take a break and come back I not only feel rejuvenated, I also feel my creative juices flowing and ready to dive in.

 

I went offline when I was at home over the holiday break & came back to New York more determined than ever.

 

It’s amazing what you notice when you take time to go offline. I see the world differently and notice things I wouldn’t normally notice. Not only that but my productivity actually increases. When I’m not spending time on my phone, I’m getting errands done, coming up with ideas, brainstorming, getting clarity on things, even playing offline games; and in return I find when I do come back online, I’m more productive than ever. My headed is clearer, and I have a clear idea of my own goals and how to direct them. I suggest everyone take a couple days to a week and go offline every once in a while. It’s good for you; it’s good for the soul.

 

Do you take time to go offline? Thoughts?
