My recent challenge which I wrote about recently was to avoid using Facebook for 100 days whilst raising money for charity. .not 100 all in one go but over 250 days. No problem at all, I thought with confidence
Today was going to be day one. .I failed!
The first slip came early, within 1 minute of waking as my hand slipped to open the app on my phone by my bed. ..”no ” I mentally reminded myself and checked my emails instead.
10 minutes later, I noticed myself looking at my new friend requests on Facebook, I had failed. My brain and fingers were operating Facebook on autopilot.
I really should know better as I run mindfulness workshops. ..wow I shocked myself that I hadn’t noticed that I had even opened the app
Oh well, it looks like this tiny challenge might be tougher than I thought. .try again with day one tomorrow
