I don’t do this well. On my more successful days, I open a book. This often makes me fall tired more quickly. On not so good days, I plug my phone in across the room to charge so that I cannot reach for it. Unfortunately it is my alarm clock so it always comes back to my bedside at some point, but I find that nights where it starts off at a distance have me falling asleep more easily, and I feel more refreshed than on days where I fall asleep with it in hand.
I am learning to avoid using my phone before bed by putting it on Do Not Disturb mode and allowing exceptions only for the alram to go off. Putting it out of sight also helps me to have to get out of bed to answer the alarm in the morning which makes sure I don't stay in bed and can start my day off right and on schedule.
- I dont really understand what unplug means
- How do you disconnect in the evening
- What time, before sleep seems to be the perfect time to disconnect?
- Does reading a book on a kindle count as unplugging?
- What do you usually do when you disconnect? I get bored and don’t know what to fill my time with.
- How early do you disconnect? Have you noticed a particular time works better?
- What can help anxiety?
- What do you do with your time after you disconnect from technology?
- How do you get yourself to put your phone down?
- What do you do when you have a day where everything is going right, and you have no reason, yet your attitude is just tired and snappy, even if at the start of the day everything was well, happy, and excited?
