How can I disconnect for a while without being completely disconnected from my loved ones?

Write letters, send emails, use a home phone line so you are less inclined to text. Also, delete social media and turn off the notifications, and set a limit on your phone. There are time limit options that you can set so you only get a certain amount of time on the app. These have been great for me

This can be hard, it’s nice to stay in the loop and be updated on everyone’s lives, but, i am a person who doesn’t have many socials and when i do, i do not have family on it. so just taking a break from social media (while leaving text/email/calls open) usually does the trick. If this doesn’t work for you another option is creating a second account for insta/facebook/whatever where you can follow only family and take a break from the other noise. Just make sure to let you family know you won’t be as active and get some water and a fresh breath of air! Hope this helped 🙂
