Week three is upon us! How are you doing midway through Project Be Free?
Here is some of what our participants are saying:
"Had an amazing unplug day yesterday with the family! We spent the entire day outdoors with no distractions. We had fun and the kids didn't fight with each other as much as usual. That makes mom happy J”
“The second Sunday off of TV was much easier than last week for two reasons. First, I wasn’t near a TV from 9:30 in the morning until 7:45 in the evening. Secondly, the weather was great so I wanted to stay outside as long as possible. By staying busy during the day, I was less inclined to find a television to watch sporting events, TV shows or movies. The only time I had thought about watching TV was before I went to sleep, but even then I wasn’t interested. Sunday reminded me of day camps as a kid, because campers would spend all time playing sports, such as dodge ball, basketball and swimming. By the time we went back home at the end of the day, I either wanted to play more sports or go to sleep. Similarly, I spent most of Sunday playing tennis and enjoying the nice weather. Next Sunday, pending weather, I want to spend more time outside and away from TVs to see if the cleansing will be even easier.”
We are loving hearing how you are benefiting from your participation. Thank you for sharing.
