Let’s be honest: I’m a television editor – so I sit in front of the computer all day. Then I come home and blog (more computer) and run my business (more computer) and feed my social media addiction (more computer). I do a lot of screen-staring in my life, and I’ll bet I’m not the only one. Now, please note that this is not me complaining. I love love love what I do, and this next season is full of more exciting opportunities than ever before. But sometimes we can get caught up in screen time and forget that our lives don’t happen on a screen. They happen at frozen yogurt shops and on walks and at birthday parties and on the balcony with a glass of wine. And by golly, has my internet-life brought me some really awesome real-life friends.
As someone who is almost always thinking workworkwork – it’s super important to take breaks where you can focus on lifelifelife. Not only because it’s good for your health/sanity/relationship – as if that weren’t reason enough – but because it’s actually good for your work too!
So, even if it’s a night of shopping with your friends (bonus points if there are awesome macarons and local homemade soda to involved), get out there – because that’s where life is!
