I’m currently amidst a bit of an impromptu unplug. I have found myself to be spending far too many mindless minutes scrolling on Instagram, laying in bed, distracted by just about anything to keep me away from the shit I need to get done. I had a revelation this morning that took me back to 2nd year university. I was super pro at procrastinating then and have fallen back into it again. So I am doing a little social media detox to get away from screen time and back to the things that mean more and hold more fulfillment for me.
I have set this out for a challenge:
- Write down what specific things I want to accomplish this weekend
- Read a book; finish “Conversations with a Rattlesnake”
- Write the text for the March 25 Creativity & Performance Class
- Walk Dar, enjoy Americanos and being outside
- Learn about a band I’m not familiar with
- Write a song
- Start on the specifics of MusicFit Collective so that ball can start rolling into it’s next phase
- Eliminate the apps/sources of distraction
- For me this is Instagram, Facebook and Twitter (all deleted from my phone by 9am this morning)
- clean house (organization internalizes itself in me, so if it’s chaos in my environment, it’s chaos in my headspace)
- Exercise and meditate and live consciously and with healthy intent
- Going for walks, staying on my exercise regimen, logging in to my coaching, writing, creating
A focused approach to my weekend will allow me to share my energy in more productive means in all aspects. I have gone ahead with accomplishing much of the list already
I watched the Beatles documentary “How The Beatles Changed The World”, vacuumed my house and going to fold laundry and am going for a walk with Dar to grab an Americano and start reading a few chapters of my book.
All in it’s nice to distract with focus. Or rather, focus your distractions.
‘Til next time… stay sweet.
ps. Yes, I’ve renamed the blog. While I do specialize with musician wellness, I know that my scope of practice and the things I write about and curate are applicable to nearly everyone. So, this is now how we all stay ‘In Tune”. Still musically applicable, but it’s my belief that creativity and thought transpire much more than just our self-declared musician/artists of the world.
