Time to hunker down

Hunkering down weather

A very different view from the one we've been used to greeted me and Ounce this morning as we recorded today’s podcast at my gate.

The dark clouds all but shouted, “hunker down!” and that’s exactly what I’m going to be doing for a couple of days.

Yesterday, I emerged from an impromptu 48 hours offline. I go offline quite a lot, but those 48 hours were more of a struggle than usual.

Since my away from home adventures I’ve been reaching for my phone a lot, usually when I notice I’m feeling physically rather rubbish. It’s understandable that I don’t want to notice that I’m not feel good, but I’ve realised how much I’m using my phone (and my iPad and laptop) as a way of avoiding the feelings in my body and that’s not been doing me any favours.

The first thing that happened when I turned my phone off was that I fell asleep! When I woke up, the second thing that happened was that I noticed I felt terribly!

48 hours later, I’d slept a lot, read quite a bit and still felt not great—but maybe, just maybe, a little better.

I heading offline for 48 hours more. I’ll let you know how I get on...
