A phone basket. However it's an individual's choice at the end of the day. A willingness & discipline to stick to time schedules for all my tasks, including phone use, has led me to 'create time' for more important task like spending time with my partner at night
Set a time where you will both disconnect. Explain the importance of it to them. If they aren't understanding than maybe they aren't ready to make proper positive changes to both of your lives.
you can always set a screen time for you and your partner if you have iphones (that I know of). I use it to manage the time I spend on my screen because I know that sometimes I take too much time on it
I try to pick a time that works for both of you. Set reminders or shared commitments on your calendar to encourage it. Celebrate little joys by doing things for each other. Charge your phone in a different room from the bedroom.
- I assume the purpose of unplug and disconnect is to calm yourself and avoiding distractions. I usually read my Kindle book for less than one hour after unplug and disconnect. Does it against the habit?
- How should I be calm about all the messages I can miss ?
- How long do you typically disconnect and unplug?
- How do you manage to unplug every day even in those days that you go to bed latter or you just have all of your schedules messed up?
- How do you break the habit of automatically opening distracting apps? I am dopamine deffecient so social media really perks me up, is there a good habit that replaces it for you?
- How do you motivate yours to read instead of turning on the tv?
- How do I disconnect and unplug without the fear of missing out on something important?
- Would you mind sharing how do you like to disconnect before bed?
- What is disconnecting for you?
- When you disconnect, what do you feel?
