Recharging My Batteries

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy for more details.

The past few days I’ve been feeling empty! I’m sure you know the feeling – emotionally drained. We all have those days when we feel like we don’t have anything left to pour into anyone else or when we question if what we’re doing in this life is really making a difference. (Please don’t be alarmed, it’s just the ebbs and flows of life!)

I hate to admit it but social media is one of my big time wasters. There have been times when I’ve found myself putzing around on Facebook and Twitter when I should be doing other things. I’d heard of people going without checking social media for a whole day (in fact, my pastor’s encouraged us to try it for a while now) so I decided to give it a try so that I could spend time doing things that re-energize me.

Surprisingly, staying off of social media for the day wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. There were a few times when I was reading on my computer and started to click over to Facebook only to remind myself that I was taking a break.

What did I do? I read a few chapters in my book, caught up on blog reading in my feed reader, baked, watched some tv, took a nap and even sat outside before heading to church last night. It was fabulous and I highly recommend that you give it a try if you’re feeling drained. In fact, I think I’m going to try it again next Sunday!

How do you recharge your batteries?
