Break from SP Points

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

I may be taking a break from the SP points for a while. Since about November I have been on EVERY SINGLE DAY and trying to get about 140-150 points a day. I get every point I can. Now with the tracking and exercise I can see that being very important and I will always try and get my 24 exercise points if there is any way I can. The points I am talking about are the reading of all the articles and posting blogs (also I like doing this and might do that everyday). The thing is I spend so much time in front of the computer reading that I feel like there are other things I can be doing. Another hobby such as needle point or reading a good book etc. Maybe even going for a leisurely walk (I can't do much more intensive exercise than I do, or I would just fall down dead lol).

I will still be around, and I am not even 100 percent sure if I will be taking a break, but, I am just feeling a little overwhelmed with being online all the time if that makes sense. Especially until the next challenge starts up, I may just not be as involved as I usually am. I just didn't want anyone to worry.

    I totally understand how we can get so preoccupied here that we seem to have no time for anything or anyone else. When I was a member and leader before I would spend so much time here that I wasn't even aware that I was in some ways shutting out my family. Now I would make meals, tidy up, run errands, but I spent more time here than the average person would spend at a 9 to 5 job.

    Coming back I slice out an hour here and there throughout the day and in that time I get what I feel needs done and then I'm off to live life to the fullest. Having a plan of your day is what is working best for me. Its becoming a routine and like a job they makes you accountable or at least I think so.

    Good for you making the discovery and realizing where your priorities need to be, find what works for you and Just Do It!

    I agree, I really cut back on Spark Points. I set the goal of getting more exercise minutes than Spark Points.
