Last night I watched a programme about a group of twenty four people who volunteered to live like the Amish for six months as an experiment to see how they would cope with a simpler life. By episode two, eight people had dropped out. I’m intrigued to see the rest of the series and it made me think about consumerism, integrity and screentime.
While my career is entirely based in consumerism and I love a bit of online shopping, I am onscreen for at least ten hours a day which is a problem. I’m thinking of trying a screen-free day once a week to see if I can detox.
It’s an interesting experiment which will be easier as we head into the summer versus the dark winter evenings.. It means no computer, laptop, phone or TV, let’s see if I can wean myself off!
