Take those writing glassess off!

Hello everyone! This is my first journal/write-up on Open Diary and i have something nice to share.

Yesterday morning, i was glued to my laptop for about 4 hours. In a single go. Writing. Exploring the internet space (that’s how i discovered Open Diary and made an account shortly). Learning new things on social media. Learning is my thing by the way. What’s yours?

And then there was a head rush all of a sudden. My breathing quickened as my head began to hurt. Before the tornado of exhaustion could take over, i half-closed the laptop lid and stood up. i breathed a few lungful realizing that i was refusing my mind the breathing room.

That’s what happens when we are so engrossed in putting our heads into a race that we tend to ignore/forget what’s making it all possible – a well-rested mind and body. i still worked through the rest of the day but i was reminded, rather heavily, to take pauses and short walks.

Take off those writing glasses. Look around. Breathe the scent of fresh air. Devour in the peace the silence has to offer. Some precious learning is there too!

What is it that you learned recently?

Welcome Priyanka! I have been a member on here since it started in 2002! Itโ€™s so much fun to look back on through the years. Itโ€™s also really great to just get everything out of your physical body and onto a page. Such a stress reliever! I hope you enjoy your diary and feel welcome in this community!

@hannah_banana0012 Yes! Writing is cathartic, like freeing the soul and letting it wander aimlessly. Your words hit home, Hannah!

It’s nice to connect with such an experienced journal-er (is that a word?). Thank you for stopping by and dropping such warmth. i do feel welcomed! Keep writing. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m guilty of having a not well-rested mind and body…thinking is my game and although I used to write in what seemed like a lifetime ago, my writing is normally confined to this place now.ย  The internet is that proverbial rabbit hole though, isn’t it?

Welcome aboard.ย  Looking forward to seeing what kind of stuff you have for us.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

@tigerhawk Performance pressure! ๐Ÿ˜…

Write. Seriously. It takes us, the wanderers, to destinations unimaginable. The journey will be worthwhile.
