I use an app that I specify what other apps are a distraction. I set a time for it to alert me. This helps me. It has greatly reduced the time I spent on social media. I started with a longer allotment, but plan on reducing in small increments down the road.
I chose a nice fiction book and placed it next to my bed. Around 10:00 I move all my electronics to another room, get in bed and read. The book is nice enough to make me feel okay about letting go of Instagram, but not so interesting that it keeps me awake. Viola!
I am exactly the same I just think about how horrible it will be when I can't go to sleep and how tired I will be in the morning.
I don't have my phone in my room at night. My bedroom is essentially a no devices zone. So with this practice i am able to break this habit.
- What do you do to disconnect& unplug, if your mind is still full of to do’s? How do you prepare to disconnect?
- How do you disconnect from the perceived intense connections and relationships with others?
- I don’t really understand what it means by disconnecting and unplugging?
- How can we disconnect and unplug when we are supposed to be using the Fabulous app (this requires the use of my phone)?
- What’s best to do instead of using my phone before bed?
- Do we need to disconnect an hour before we go to bed or before we go bed?
- Does this mean all screens? Like iPad iPhone tv and laptop into one? Because i watch TV to relax before bed (TV is in the lounge room so I still have to walk to my room afterwards) I’m disciplined with only watching one episode. Then disconnect is i just use my phone only for the fabulous app or urgent family messages then put it on silent. Is that enough?
