festive screensavers & media sabbaths

Smelling the roses screen saver

Taking time offline each week to rest and revive my mind from constant media is a practice that’s really important for me. It reminds me of what I value most and allows my brain to reset, keeping me fresh for the new week ahead. Taking regular times where you turn off the screens is my biggest piece of advice for bloggers, moms, and really anyone who spends a significant amount of time online. Have you ever taken a rest from media? It’s so refreshing!

To help the cause we created three really fun screensavers. Each design has a horizontal version for your computer and a vertical version for your phone. Whenever I try to take time off I find myself often reaching for my phone, or opening my computer (it’s so addicting!). Having a bright and festive screensaver up reminding me what I WANT to be doing is such a huge help.

We’ve got a little bit of everything going on this weekend. Valentine’s plans with the husband, a birthday party on Saturday and time home with the kids to stop and smell the blooming flowers on Monday. We might even try to fit in a bit of skiing. No matter what your weekend looks like, I hope you get to take time away to relax and enjoy it!

    YES to taking media breaks. It’s important for me to sometimes seek inspiration online before I create, but just as important to sometimes create on my own without any motivation from any online community.

  2. These screensavers are so cute, and couldn’t agree more with taking a break from media from time to time.
