Lately, Danielle LaPorte has become a rock star of inspiration for me. She recently wrote a blog post on taking a digital hiatus and made the recommendation to her readers to consider doing the same. Since I read her post, I’ve been mulling over taking a break from the two social media sites I frequent often, as well as thinking about all the things I could be doing with the extra time.

So, I’ve decided to take a short hiatus from Facebook and Pinterest. As much as I love both websites, I need to focus. Both websites provide me with hours of entertainment, as well as hours of procrastination. So, I’m taking the month of July (maybe more depending on productivity) to do the following with the rest of my time off this summer: 

  • organizing (time and space)
  • decluttering (mind and space)
  • decision making
  • goal-setting
  • detoxing (trying to kick the sugar addiction)
  • reflecting
  • recharging
  • reading
  • researching
  • creating
  • writing
  • energizing (mind, body, and soul)

This hiatus will coincide with me starting Jackie Warner’s “eat clean” program on July 1st. I will also be reading Danielle LaPorte’s new book The Fire Starter SessionsDuring my hiatus, I will still blog. I’m hoping this hiatus will inspire me to write more. I’m excited about the ideas swirling around in my head and look forward to putting some of those ideas into action.

I have spent the last few hours creating my virtual bulletin boards on Pinterest. It is so FUN, and it’s making me totally HAPPY. This way of archiving my favorite things seems to speak to the INPUT theme of myself. Many thanks to my friend DD for taking the time to sit with me and explain how to use this website.

Check me out on Pinterest to see what’s up with The Kat.

For those of you following my Reading Challenge, I am currently reading 11/22/63 by Stephen King and We Are Their Heaven by Allison DuBois. My little Jedi and I are reading Floors by Patrick Carman.
