Step Away From The Internet!

You don't need me to tell you that the internet is a massive place. One minute I'm reading beauty blogs, the next I'm on the Daily Mail and all of a sudden I find myself on a website about conspiracy theories (true story!). Sometimes though, the internet can get quite overwhelming. When I'm not working on my blog I often feel like I should be doing something productive, like promoting my blog on social media etc and sometimes I find this hard to shake off. I thought it would be a good idea to put together a list of things that I enjoy doing that DON'T involve the internet. So, if you're having a lazy day at home but don't quite want to waste the whole day refreshing your Twitter feed, hopefully you'll find an idea from my little list.
Read a book or magazine.
Do puzzles.
Write something.
Have a bath.
Listen to music.
Tidy/organise your rooms or wardrobe.
Phone a friend or family member for a chat.
Plan blog posts.
Watch trash TV.
Do some cooking or baking.
Try a new exercise regime.
Watch a film.
Look through old photos.
Pamper yourself.
Paint your nails.
Put together some outfits.
Go outside - go for a walk, go shopping or go to a coffee shop!
Do you ever find yourself glued to the internet?!

  1. I definitely need to step away from the internet and screens a bit more - working all day at a computer, blogging in the evenings/weekends often means I'm rarely away! x

  4. Oooh this is a great list! I always tell myself I'll pamper myself one night when I have nothing going on but I always forget.. xx

  5. I find every few months somethimes I need to take a blog break to clear my mind. Taking a week away from blogging without posting can be painful but it does the world of good.I normally turn to bingeing out on youtube videos and I find myself doing some of the thing you've listed like watching a film... and shopping !. hehe. Hope you had a lovely Christmas and Happy New Year.

  6. This is a great post with a great list of ideas - I find that glued to the internet feeling pretty depressing. Refreshing to see that nothing has happened since you last looked. It's good to step away from it sometimes :)

  7. Lovely post! I need to step away from the Internet sometimes but being a blogger does make it hard! As you say, whether its writing a post or promoting it on social media, there's always something to be done! Xx.

  8. Great post, very true - I definitely want to spend more time reading books, I've got one half way through and another ready to start.

  9. I spend far too much time in bed on my phone or laptop. I need to get better at scheduling my internet time. Reading books and painting my nails are some of my favourite non internet things to do.

  11. I've never really thought of this before! I'll definitely give this ago just to clear my mind every now and again...New Years Resolution perhaps?! xx
