Today however has been productive. I know because I'm participating in a "time management" study, classroom of one, that would be Moi. I'm logging my every moment, what I do when and how so I can see where and what I am spending my time on. At a glance I see a lot of FaceBook and too much t.v., both of which I will be cutting waaayyy back on, replacing both with much more productive and creative endeavors.
Ideally I would like to take t.v. out of the equation altogether. I've never been a huge fan of t.v., especially reality t.v. but if the "idiot box" is on I am sure to watch and if I watch then I will inevitably get hooked on some cop show or a PBS series or the History Channel and of course, I'm a news whore. I feel like I must know what's going on at every moment of the day, here, there and everywhere around this awesome universe of ours. CNN is the background music of my life. So I'm in the productive process of making changes. The t.v. shows I can always order on Amazon and tuck away for those days when I need a 'Castle' or 'Criminal Minds' fix and my beloved news I'll limit myself to the morning and evening editions. I think that's do-able.
In place of FaceBook and t.v. time I will be writing, reading, crafting, sewing, taking photos and spending as much time outdoors as I possibly can. I am imposing a media detox ritual on myself and on my life!
Another productive moment of today, choosing my 'Word Of The Year.' I chose the word "creativity" and thus, this will be a year of creativity for me, expressing my creativity in every aspect of my life and creating something new and fun every day for the rest of 2013. I'm really excited about this and really excited to share some of my creativity with all of you.
