The October Daily: Disconnected

Today’s Challenge: Go without something (e.g. phone, twitter) for a day and tell us what it feels like.

Ok, I forgot to look ahead so I only saw what today’s challenge was at around 10:00 am.  So, I disconnected from Twitter from that time until the same time tonight…

It. Was. Torture.  

I felt like I was missing something important.  All day I kept wondering who was posting what and if there were any Twittertunities (yup I just made that up…twitter + opportunities) I could be missing out on while I was ‘disconnected’.  I could wait for 10pm to get here fast enough.  I was swiping that Twitter app at 10 on the nose and Guess What?!?!?!?  I didn’t really miss all that much.

So why did I feel like I was skipping meals instead of simply disconnecting from ONE of my many Social Media Networks?  I think it may be because at this point with my Blog and all that has become attached to my Twitter it has become almost second nature whenever I have a spare moment to check it.  If I’m waiting at an appointment, during commercials, waiting for the microwave or simply bored I do what I call my SM Swoop…I make a swoop through all my Social Media Apps on my phone to update on what happened or to just do a bit of updating on my own accounts.

Staying disconnected today was a bit difficult but it did help teach me that perhaps I need to disconnect a bit more often.  I was a bit more present in my day and that was a plus.

Has anyone else noticed that technology

has become a part of your daily routine?

How would you be if you had to eliminate it for a day?
