Day 1 of My 30-Day Digital Declutter
Updated: Dec 10, 2021
Life becomes a meditation when you partner with Nature to grow your medicine. Each piece of straw...a revolution of consciousness.
"The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings."
Masanobu Fukuoka, The One-Straw Revolution
After reading Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport, I’ve decided to take the plunge and delete all of my social media apps from my phone.
Part of the ”Digital Clutter” protocol is to replace the time I normally spend scrolling and posting with meaningful and therapeutic activities.
Being spun by the garden nymphs is at the top of the list for me.
And of course blogging, working on my book and being fully present for my children are going to be the primary keys to kicking this unruly social media habit.
The last break I took from social media, a few years ago, lasted almost a year. I remember my favorite part was getting projects done and feeling more focused in the activities I more deliberately chose to occupy my attention with.
On day one, after the initial adjustment and overcoming my irrational “fear of missing out”, I am really just enjoying feeling bored.
I’m excited to see what medicines I can grow in this desert, in the winter time. The primary plant teachers I’m currently working with for my minimalist body products are roses, lavender, chamomile, comfrey, tobacco, calendula and mint. These all thrive here in this climate zone! If you’ve found your way here, welcome…being here is so enough! I appreciate you following along with me on this journey to freedom, self-awareness and service as humble homeward companions!
