Z is to Zone Out

Hello! Welcome to my seventh attempt at the April AtoZ blogging challenge. My theme this year is Experiences of a first time grandmother! Some sweet, salty moments and learnings! My posts are totally based on what I felt (may even border on rants) and are not meant to be a guide. 

Zone Out
When I look back, the day when Daughter went into Labour and next 2 months are a blur. On the one hand time seems to have flown yet all days were almost identical. 

It was a period of intense happenings in our country.. major political decisions had been taken which naturally generated much discussion among friends and family. 

I had Zoned Out. 
Switched off from the world.

No reading newspapers or watching News on TV. No time for Facebook or Twitter. All my time and energy was spent on the newborn and first time Mom who we were hosting! 

These were precious moments that would occur only once in our lives..

And you know what, I realised I was not missed in the big world outside. Life went on – Trees blossomed, the Municipal Corporation functioned, the Stock Market fell and rose, roads got repaved … you get the drift..I did not miss them either.. 

In fact, I was so peaceful. So much so that I have decided to keep zoning out more often. Reduce the stress. Stay happy. Enjoy being a Grandma!!  

Have you tried zoning out? 
I am sure my thoughts may cause a deja vu to some of you especially someone who has hosted a new born. I would love to hear from you!

See you tomorrow folks!

  1. Yeah, I've stepped away from the world a time or two. Great post.

  2. If you are happy in the world of your own, why bother what happens in the world around? Liked your resolve to "enjoy being grandma"!
    I loved your theme and the posts Archana. Glad I connected with you.
    Heartiest congratulations on successful completion of A to Z challenge. I wish you all the best for all the future endeavors.

  3. Being happy in your own world is the best thing for any person. I too zone out quite often to destress and those times makes me more productive.

  4. Congratulations on ending the challenge, and sharing your grandma thoughts! I enjoyed them a lot.
    Take care, enjoy time with your grandbaby, and stay healthy.

  5. I had tried stepping away from the world too. And when you have a lovely disguise in the form of grandchildren, there can be no second thoughts. I really enjoyed your series. Congratulations on completing the challenge! 🙂

  6. I liked your statement. I am minding my focus area. But the rest of the world is doing its own activities. I don't have to worry and take care of them also. Take care of yourself and your family members as the occasion demands.

    Congratulations for successful A to Z Blogging.

  7. Yes, getting into the zone to write and zoning out from the World. You were very busy at home with newborn and new mom, so congratulations on the hard work and keeping it together. I expect you enjoy the baby more as a grandmother than you would as a mother, not so much to take in, the tiredness from the birth and breastfeeding, getting up in the middle of the night …
    As a grandmother , it’s easier to appreciate all the unique moments of babyhood.
