We have been in the camper now a, short, week and a half but a lot has changed. We have slowed down to enjoy whats around instead of whats in our computers and phones. These changes happened unintentionally and if anything we were fighting it especially me. Getting outdoors has become our daily norm.
Between having no cable, a crappy wifi connection for our computer, and almost out of data on our phone, we have had a very disconnected week. Let me tell you I haven’t had a week like that EVER. I defiantly want to continue this kind of lifestyle.
It has not been easy I don’t want to make it seem that way. We use to spend hours and I mean HOURS on ipads, phones, computer, and have netflix going on the tv at the same time. I was addicted to say the least. By being so frugal we both refused the option of a hotspot and we just agreed to make it work.
- Less facebook more reading,
- No instagram instead a nice walk in the woods,
- How about snap chat (that has been my hardest) take that away and instead have a nice little dinner on the grill. Which we invited my grandmother who lives 4 campers down from us.
This is what our week looked like in a glimpse.
Bottom line its been fabulous. I have had an urge for years now to just throw out the tv or get rid of internet all together. The best way in my opinion is to do it in moderation. We can have a little bit of those luxuries in our lives. Yet now we don’t
NEED want them like before.
It has opened up so many new options for us to do with our time. Anthony and I have been reading like crazy to learn new things instead of researching online.
P.S.— MY INTERNET CONNECTION WENT OUT TWICE WHILE TYPING THIS POST. HAHA 🙂
