DAY 10-12

It is the weekend, and tbV and Aaron and Sarah and myself are having to Yosemite for the weekend to stay in a Yurt [look it up!], and it might be partially enforced for us, but I want to encourage you to try this for a couple of hours, or a day, or if you’re really feeling brave, the whole weekend.

Task: unplug yourself from the screens…

Turn off the television, step away from the computer screen, leave your phone completely off. Create a space this weekend to head outdoors for a long period of time, maybe with other people. Go for a walk or head to the nearest park of have a decently long drive.

Bake something and go and share it with a friend of drop it off with someone you know who may be going through a tough time at the moment. Grab some bats and head to the beach for a game. Invite some friends round for an evening’s worth of board games. Grab some instruments and have a worship jam.

I would love to hear what you get up to. Take time this weekend to consider how much space and time you give to the screens in your life and whether that it a good thing or not, or whether there might be some people who you would be better off giving face time to.
