Do less not more; 2014

Resolutions tend to be about doing more.

7 days into the new year and I have finally settled on a resolution that I truly intend to stick to.

Do less.

How many evenings, bus journeys, train journeys, you reach for your phone or tablet and start playing candy crush?  When did you last read a magazine without the television on?

Does this sound like you?  Do you blog in front of the tv?  IT'S ME!

It's a me that I need to change. My phone is currently my alarm, which in turn makes it the last thing that look at in the evening which in turn means I check twitter or worse the daily mail....

I need to focus more on the task in hand, I need to learn to read again without distraction.

I need to relish a journey for having a destination,  not for having internet connection.

I need to do less but do it more meaningfully.  I need to focus.

I will do this by:

  • Turning off my mobile
  • Putting music on instead of the tv
  • Not having tablet, phone, laptop in the bedroom
  • By dedicating myself time to do the things I enjoy
    • catching up on blogs with a coffee and some good music in the mornings
    • reading books in bed
    • having a night without tv
There will be no more laptop, mobile, magazine and tv all at once, I never remember anything. I think I now know why.

Enjoy the rain drops.

Will you commit to giving anything up this year?
