The UnWired Mom 14-Day Challenge Begins TODAY! - Sarah Mae
Hi, I'm Sarah.
Join me in keeping on and beginning again!

The UnWired Mom 14-Day Challenge Begins TODAY!


Today we begin the challenge to really live the life we’ve been given.

We’re choosing to be intentional, to be free, to enjoy life, and to not let the Internet master us. We know that our lives matter, our time matters, and the souls in our care need us present and fully alive. And really, don’t we want to live full and engage in the life all around us? I don’t want to regret my life, and I know I will never look back and say, “I’m glad I spent all that time online.”

Now listen, I am not down on the Internet. I am thankful for it! I love being able to connect with people around the world. I love being able to write here and publish my words and interact with you all. I love ordering books and reaching across divides and learning and helping others through these invisible wires. The Internet is a good thing. But. It can be highly addictive. It can be used as an escape. It can rule our lives if we don’t choose how we really want to live our lives.

With all that said, let’s begin, shall we? First things first, to know how the challenge will go down, please click HERE (this post has all the deets including link-up dates)! Important: I will not be blogging the challenges each day. I will post a blog with a linky on Friday the 16th and Friday the 23rd where you can share how the challenge has been going.

Here are the challenge titles for each day:

Day 1: Stronger With a Friend

Day 2: Write Out Your Why

Day 3: Set Up Internet Controls

Day 4: 10-15 Years From Now

Day 5: Prepare for Time Offline

Day 6: An UnWired Day

Day 7: Don’t Judge

Day 8: Your Ideal Day

Day 9: Your Realistic Day

Day 10: Interview Your Kids

Day 11: Get Together with an “in-the-flesh” friend

Day 12: Goals & Priorities

Day 13: Set Realistic Perimeters For Your Babes

Day 14: Have Purpose

In the eBook each day includes a bit of encouragement, a challenge, an “engage your life” idea, and a journal exercise. If you don’t have a copy of The UnWired Mom – Choosing to Live Free in an Internet Addicted World, you can get it as a PDF for 50% off (making it only $2.50) by going HERE and using code: CHALLENGE. If you don’t want a PDF, you can get the eBook on Kindle for only $4.99 HERE.

The UnWired Mom Challenge is not a stay-off-your-computer-for-two-weeks challenge. It’s a challenge to help you try and break some habits and come up with a vision for living free and whole and un-addicted while still enjoying the benefits of the Internet.

Let’s get started building those good Internet habits! Link-up a post about your joining the challenge and link it below! No blog? Just leave a comment letting us know you’re in!

Love, SM
