    Has anyone ever took some extended time off the grid for self improvement (srs)

    Just had an extended thought about this the other day.

    With the way the world is with Covid and having all these restrictions placed upon us, I'm seeing any realistic path of things being even remotely "normal" until 2022 at the earliest

    So I figured during that time, I was going to take this next year on just focusing on self improvement solely and not much else. Ditch the social life and whatever little fun we could have and just take the year to fully focus on grinding.

    Wondering if anyone else here has done anything like this?

    I did for about 3 years after my divorce. I wasn't interested in dating and wanted to sort myself out.

    the dating aside do you think it was worth it having that period of isolation?

    For me it was, I saved up for a down payment on a new house (my ex got the house, I got my retirement accounts), I got physically in shape, and I started the next chapter in my career. I didn't totally isolate, but I wasn't very social and was intentionally working on bettering myself and my position in life.

    Yes. Works extremely well.

    Sometimes people give you a hard time about it afterwards.

    giving me more and more motivation to get started asap on it

    its only a year and honestly i've done everything one could do from a social standpoint so I wouldn't have a case of FOMO (fear of missing out)

    id rather take this year off to make sure the next 10 are awesome, if that makes sense

    I wish there was some nice forest or something to go off grid completely where I live.
    The most I did was one of those 10 day meditation retreats. hardly extended, but pretty isolated even though not really off grid.

    I thought this meant some time camping without electricity. I've been "off the grid" in your definition since 2013.

    You do you mean when you say "off the grid"?
    Do you mean in a remote area?
    Or do you mean going out less and spending more time improving your life?

    I did not mean I was going to go completely off the grid

    Just keeping social interactions and all that to a complete minimum. Go to the gym, go to work, go home and work on my goals. Rinse repeat
