The university has a wellness plan for employees. It is a points based system. You get points for exercising, for drinking water, for participating in “healthy” meetings (in which the term “healthy” is apparently debatable as I was in a healthy meeting the other day that offered cupcakes).
Not surprisingly, I’m way over the required number of points for this quarter because I’m already a little bit healthy, and absolutely a lot competitive.
However, there has been one way to accumulate points that (up until now) I haven’t even tried. Go electronic free for one night.
In my world, this feels impossible. Not only do I have this little blog that I like to maintain, but I also have a number of duties for my job that require fairly consistent social media monitoring, etcetera. And honestly, I don’t really want to be electronics free.
And then we went to San Diego/Carlsbad. For 6 days. And not only did I not use electronics (okay, very sparingly), I didn’t even want to. Truth? At Disneyland, I left my phone in the car. All day.
It was absolutely liberating.
The only thing I missed out on was the pictures because I snap all photos with my phone. Luckily, Matty B was around and he takes better pictures than I do anyway.
We went on vacation. I have no proof, other than Matty B’s photos. It was the best.
We miss you already, CA!
P.S. I’m totally claiming my wellness points for being electronics free.
