Is disconnecting easy for you?

Clotildes P.
Disconnecting is easy if you make it easy, itโ€™s still okay to listen to music and other stuff, just resist the urge. Do other things to occupy your time. I crochet, draw, read and write stories. You can do this.(; ๐Ÿ‘
Katelyn U.
Yes; there's many times when I will not have my phone anywhere near me. However, I also get distracted easily and will scroll through social media when I'm bored or feeling unmotivated.
Pamela Z.
It depends because it easy to disconnect from others but to disconnect from my electronic, it really hard because that how I get depressed from overstimulated.
Sneha Q.
The benefits of unplugging :-

Reduce stress and anxiety: Taking a break from technology allows us to disconnect from the constant demands of work and social media. Enhance social connections: Unplugging allows us to connect with others on a deeper level and engage in activities that promote social interaction.

Sil N.
Not really to be honest, both in the morning and the evening especially. Well, hope Iโ€™ll soon find a way to manage it somehow ๐Ÿ™‚
Arisberto P.
I don't disconnect I use deep breaths and put the bedtime alarm to alarm to put my phone black and wh8te so it'll make me fall asleep
Heldo P.
No it is definitely not easy infact that's the one thing I struggle a lot with on a daily, something it seems easy like I can do this but the very next day or perhaps hour depending on what I'm disconnecting from I find myself longing for it .
Mallory T.
I think disconnecting is pretty hard for me to do when I'm stressed and feel like I have a lot of stuff to do but I still try my best to disconnect a little from time to time throughout the day. I recommend disconnecting because it helps me set my thinking back on track if I'm stressed and makes me feel more calm. I find it easy to disconnect before I go to sleep though.
Alyssa N.
Yes, most of the time I just put my phone on do not disturb and just disconnect from my phone and lay in bed in journal I read or something like that
P N.
disconnecting is like taking your headphones and listening to music and not focusing on whatโ€™s around you other than the music. Itโ€™s putting you focus onto something other than whatโ€™s going around you. So yes it is easy, you donโ€™t realise it because itโ€™s easy when you are doing something you are ingrosed in and focused on. You can disconnect from your phone to- put it on donโ€™t disturb or urn it off and find something you enjoy or something to do that will make you bsuy and overtime you will build up the habit
Lukas X.
I wouldn't say it's easy to disconnect mentaly but I think that if you truly try and place your mind right then it will be easier, atleast for me. In friendships for me disconnecting is too easy and I need to be more with my friends.
Sapir E.
Mostly but it depends what you call disconnecting.
My routine includes yoga and meditation, but I'm not well enough versed to practice these without guidance. Therefore I use my phone for these activities.
Carmen U.
No, it is the hardest thing for me. It takes a lot of discipline, I regularly use the mindfulness mode in my phone, that shuts down the notifications, and only allows my emergency contacts to reach out. It starts automatically at 6:00 pm until 5:00am next day. And I have a book to read before I sleep and a notebook to write when I wake up. Hope this helps
Owen F.
Deffinitelly it's not! Especially when something new is happening on the Internet, it's hard not to watch it. But you'll feel much better after disconnecting, because you can have time only for yourself โค๏ธ
Alison N.
Not at all. I am constantly surrounded by sources of entertainment including cellphones, televisions, laptops, and game consoles. Of course, my favorite hobbies involve almost all of those things. Itโ€™s important to find balance though and spend time away from the screens. It is not easy for me though. There are definitely days I spend more time looking at screens than not.
George P.
I've noticed it's easier when I have replacements for brain stimulation in place- for me that looks like starting my night routine (face washing, teeth brushing, lotion) after I heal my alarms set. Then I have the book I've been reading and read that for about 30 min. Just keeping busy with other things makes it easier!
Davinci Y.
It is only hard at the very first day, you will feel so much want to go to social media, thatโ€™s what your monster voice said. But if you just try to abandon that thinking 2 days, it is so easy, when time is going on and on, your action will be set automatically!
Ida C.
I don't think it's easy. Recently, I broke off my relationship with many of those closest to me, and I was deceived by many of them. Situations happened to me from them that I did not expect would happen, but with time, everything passes. Some of the people I was deceived by, I intended to sever my relationship with them, but they talked to me as we used to do, so I felt that I was wrong. I said to myself, I will talk to them and communicate with them, but not as we were before. I think this will put me at ease more.
Letha P.
I'm starting a 7 day 7-Day Jumpstart Your Hobby Challenge challenge. You inspired me to be my best and I wanted you to know that. During my challenge, will you hold me accountable?
Research has shown that I'll be more likely to complete the challenge with your help! Want to follow along?

Une Y.
I canโ€™t believe the ride I been on. I was so sacred coming into this program that I wasnโ€™t going to make friends but with time I am getting a little bit more comfortable in this program. I met new friends and old ones I was happy but something happen i found out that someone is talking about me behind my back. They said something that hit close to home. I had a panic attack but my friends help me though it. I am so glad that I have friends by my side to help me though this so I love me friends.
Aziz C.
Yes disconnecting is easy for me cuz then I have some time away from my iPad phone computer and ps5 so I think it iseasy
Catherine Q.
Not at all…It gets my attention everytime I want to be productive and my hands, brain itches for that very little pleasure, I am addicted
Shounak Z.
No it's not. Mostly because I procrastinate a lot. So even if I stay away from the world(try to), my head keeps on lingering around those things only. There have been times I wanted to disconnect so bad but couldnโ€™t.
Kamila C.
No, Iโ€™m always on my phone or any other device cause i just got so used to it and addicted to it. I wish I could disconnect more easily, if I did, I wouldโ€™t procrastinate so much.
Sigmund X.
Sometimes! When I am actively trying to disconnect, itโ€™s easy. When I am casually just โ€œtrying to use my phone lessโ€ itโ€™s more difficult.
Isabella T.
Not always, but it's easier if I leave my phone or computer in another room. I sleep upstairs so I put a post-it note on the stairs saying "Do you actually want your phone and computer with you right now?"
Kimberly U.
To be honest no itโ€™s not, because Iโ€™m used to being on my phone all the time. So sometimes I end up on my phone when I know I shouldnโ€™t be. Like at 3 in the morning.
Kaylee O.
Not at the moment. Since my schedule is very busy, it's hard for me to disconnect because either I don't have time for it or I prefer to rest above anything else.
Omar Z.
Itโ€™s a little bit difficult because at the end of the day some times i have tasks such as studying not done yet so i have to use my pomodoro app on the phone so at this case i canโ€™t really disconnect.
Josefine C.
No not really because my whole life is on social media and my phone I have a long time there I have books on there it's just really hard to get off of it but I find a good book or something that motivates me and I do that for however long it takes
Dylan T.
Yes, because I hate being on the phone, makes me feel numb and useless and like I'm wasting my time, which is a thing I hate.
Mariana O.
No es tan fรกcil para mi, porque asรญ dejo de pensar ciertas cosas que me daรฑan y no me dejan tranquila. Quisiera hallar una manera de poder evitar estos pensamientos que no me dejan dormir en paz
Allison X.
No. It never has been, but Fabulous has certainly made it easier. It motivates me and makes me want to do better. Even if I donโ€™t want to disconnect from my devices, I want to do better in life, and Fabulous makes sure to remind me of that.
Sophie U.
Not really, since we are in a totally connected world, besides it has become an addiction. It is hard to let aside technology devices, as we also may be influenced by our whole enviroment, the job, or the interaction with people that may not notice how dependent we are of technology devices.
Beck N.
Yes, Im in my head a lot so I journal A LOT, I do other things that make me happy such as reading, drawing, going for walks, getting to know myself, meditating, and spending time with my loved ones. If you love being in solitude as much as I do then do things out of your comfort zone with yourself or do the things you love most, try new things, put your ideas into action, challenge yourself. Overall have fun with yourself and be intentional about it.
Deepika Z.
It depends on my mood. When I'm stress free.. i can easily disconnect and read a book. But when I'm tired i don't like keeping my phone aside.
Resi X.
No, I simply donโ€™t know how. If I try then I forget and remember soon after. When I do it instantly with no routine then I get distracted.
Klaus Peter D.
That is the hardest part for me. I think it will get easier if I make intentional online connections with friends earlier in the day.
Eiurlan P.
Not always. I sometimes struggle to not check my phone whenever I get a notification or when I am bored and just have my phone in front of me.
Lanette O.
Disconnecting doesnโ€™t come easy. Thereโ€™s always one more thing to do or look at ot read. So I give myself a time limit. And remind myself that Iโ€™ve done enough and my long term goals are important!
Day N.
No, because I find hard to disconnect because I donโ€™t want to face reality and I want to stay in the world of dramas or movies.
Lida Z.
No, it really isn't. I enjoy my phone and it is my many connection to support and community, plus the things that keep me calm when anxious.
Janna Z.
No, i always struggle to disconnect with technology because of my habits like reading digital mangas, news and research articles just a few minutes away from my sleep time
Hans Wilhelm A.
For me disconnecting is the first thing I do before I even start my night routine, because I cannot have a nice cozy self-care night routine if I am still stressed out about the things that happened today, whether it's work, school,.. anything that felt stressful, I need to let go of all of that, when I am doing my night routine. So before I even start doing anything I just tell myself that today is over and I'm going to have to let go of all of the emotions that I hold onto when I was working, studying, socializing.. you could help yourself by doing some yoga or meditation or even if you like to use subliminals you could use ones that help you let go of all of your builled up emotions. I think everybody should learn how to disconnect from the outside world.
Jonah F.
kind of, sometimes I just get bored and play games on my phone. Iโ€™m not saying Iโ€™m addicted to it, but I do need to learn to disconnect form electronics for a while.
Julie C.
No. Because the world now revolves around technology, it's harder to unug and put your phone down. It's a bad habit I gotta breako
Manon S.
Disconnecting isn't always easy, and sometimes it's actually really hard. Even if I'm not immersed in some online activity or stuck endlessly scrolling, I can still get carried away thinking of "one last thing" after "one last thing" that I'm going to do on my phone. In the worst cases, I'll tick the box saying I'm going to unplug, only to pop TikTok back open and watch for another half hour. Some nights, I never disconnect at all, and fall into a fitful sleep listening to music or podcasts to drown out my thoughts instead. For the most part, though, I know it's for the best if I disconnect and it's one of the bedtime tasks I follow through on most regularly.
Alice S.
Disconnecting can be difficult but doing it feels amazing. At the end of the day when you are just able to relax and put ur phone on silent just feels amazing.
Sophia O.
Disconnecting is not easy for me and I'm not sure I've grasped what it means either. I like to use devices to entertain myself and keep my mind busy and not become bored or begin overthinking.
Nicolaus Z.
No, it isn't easy to disconnect . But to reinforce this habit, we can take it step by step and also not beat ourselves up if we fail to do it once or twice. I have been able to disconnect from my phone before sleeping two days in a row now. I know you can do it too! ๐Ÿ˜Š Best wishes
Haylee L.
For any body who needs help with disconnecting I'm here to help my name is Haley and I can help you. Write in your journal is a thought of idea . Go outside to enjoy some fresh air is one , thats all I could think of let me know your ideas in the comments.
Cathleen X.
Sometimes it's really hard and sometimes I am just waiting to. But it usually depends on what happend the day. Example: I woke up at 5.00 in the morning and had a really bad tommy ace. I then went to the toilet and puked a lot so I was sick. And I couldn't wait to go to bed again. And if I have a good day then I can fall asleep fast or mabye sometimes it's hard to fall asleep.
Jordan R.
Disconnecting is difficult because of how weโ€™ve been trained to be so reliant on every type of connection in todayโ€™s society. However, when I disconnected from everything outside of me and connect with myself, I find a lot more peace and answers than any other type of connection.
El N.
It wasn't easy at first but by time it became a habit. I tried that 3 2 1 rule and it really helped. Your sleep schedule fixes itself and you feel energised.
It's amazing really.
Abru C.
Now it is! Since I have routines that I've made with this app I can easily disconnect from my phone or thoughts I don't want to have (I overthink a lot).
Louna O.
No it isn't because I use ASMR to fall asleep to because I have chronic fatigue syndrome which makes falling asleep quite hard which is why I don't usually stop using my phone at night because that tends to just make my sleep far worse if I can't fall asleep
Phillip U.
No absolutely not. I actually don't have a very big friend circle but whenever I try to stay from my phone it feels so hard to resist it but the opposite happens when I don't think about the fact that I am actually disconnecting. It's like I've developed a mentality where whatever I want to do or aim for it always fail but if I'm doing something without having a particular mindset or aim then I can do it.
Isavella G.
Honestly, no. It gets really hard. But sleep washes over me and all I can think about is getting to bed before this tired feeling passed. It also takes a lot of willpower. You have to will yourself to say no and close the devices. It will only be for the better.
Sierra P.
When I'm with people, yes, very easy; I love spending time in the real world with my friends and family. I get frustrated when people choose those moments to stay disconnected from the moment. But when I'm alone I have fallen into a bad habit of been watching YouTube. I deleted my social media years ago and have never regretted it though. One of the best decision I have ever made.
Elizabeta I.
To be honest, its not. I really like to spend time on my phone so its really hard. I deleted some apps that are wasting so much time in my day. Its hard but better without them. I recommed
Baptiste P.
Disconnecting is easy if you already had experience. I had it twice and i think its easy, but for beginners will be a little tough.
Victoria C.
Disconnecting can be hard when you feel like going on your phone, but what I usually do (and this is something you can do aswell) is do something else like watch TV. I always watch TV with my Mum in the evenings and it is nice to spend some family time together and then hopefully, you will forget your phone even existed! I also power off my phone at 8 o'clock before bed to make it less tempting to go on my phone.
Raven Y.
The short answer is no, of course not in this technological age we live in! But I find it much easier to do so when I have something to replace the phone/laptop/tv that Iโ€™m disconnecting from, i.e. a book, an art project, cooking, etc.
Francesca P.
Not Always… Because when you don't have time to do something during the day, you want to extend late night sessions of playing or chatting.
Carolina Q.
Disconnecting comes gradually for me. At first it's a bit difficult but as I allow myself to just let go and breathe, i then find myself at ease with it.
Karla E.
Disconnecting in the beginning is pretty difficult especially if you're very used to being on the internet but once i've put alll my devices away and im focusing on something else its quite easy.
Albane Q.
Disconnecting for us definitely not easy for me, but I push myself my maybe reading a book of deep breaths, just to distract myself from scrolling. Hope this answers your question
Storm W.
Not always. It is sometimes hard to make myself do it and put my phone away, but the feeling afterwards is incredibly rewarding!. Taking the time to just… be, usually I take it for granted but it makes a huge difference in your day!, that helps me keep going!.
Marten E.
Not at all. A lot of my friends are online, so when they're awake I want to talk to them before bed. And because I don't know when I'm going to fall asleep or even get tired, it's hard to plan ahead.
Carsta N.
Not at all.sometimes when I'm studying in my study table I easily get distracted when a notification came to my phone and then I just scrolling through it.
Moss P.
No, disconnecting has never been easy for me. I'm so use to being bored on my phone that when I try to do something else I find it difficult to want to do it.
Tejaswini P.
No, it isn't. Honestly, I have been addicted to mobile phones and it's been hard to pull off. But I have learnt a thing, if I try and tell myself that I don't have a choice but to do as it is to be done, it becomes more easier for me to do the task at hand. So tell yourself you don't have a choice but to disconnect. If needed, use blocking apps at the time you want to disconnect.
Bernice A.
Some days it's easy and some days it's not. I usually just remember why I started the journey and who I want to become. From there that thought process informs my decision on whether I'll disconnect or not. Also ticking the done button on Fabulous helps ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
Marie E.
I do not understand, because the laungage that I'm speaking here in my town is different, in this country we don't speak English.
Kyle W.
Deffinitelly it's not! Especially when there's something new happening online, it's hard not to watch it. But you'll feel much better after disconnecting, because you can think about yourself โค๏ธ
Beck N.
Yes, but sometimes I have my moments where I try to get so much done at once that I just end up getting distracted by my phone.
Harnisha X.
At first it wasn't, but then I shut down my phone everytime I wanna disconnect so it became easy for me cuz you can't open the phone.
Ivy X.
Not exactly, so I had to download an app that locks my socials. I found uninstalling ineffective for me. So I use an app that locks all my socials and most frequented apps at a given time. So that has created a body clock for me such that anytime the specific time,, lets say 9pm reaches,, I just find myself putting my phone on dnd. Plus the routines I have created or rather the things I started doing with my spare time fulfill me so much so I find myself some days not even using my phone.
Lucile Z.
Quite simple. I Have a lot of things to occupy myself with so disconnecting isn't a burden for me.You can do the same thing to!
Maria N.
No! Itโ€™s the main habit Iโ€™m struggling with. I could easily have no phone on me and be offline all day with no tv, but the evening has usually been phone/tv time on the sofa
Juliet R.
not really, whenever I try to disconnect from my phone I always just go back to it. Iโ€™m bored whenever I do my homework and whenever I try to do something productive. Itโ€™s really annoying and Iโ€™m not sure what I should do
Madison S.
Yes, because at night I like to sit in my room and meditate to disconnect as well. I also have my phone on do not disturb at a certain time so I can let my body rest and recover
Beverly T.
Honestly not that much, so i choose to do some of my work for 30 minutes at that time (like 1 hour before bed). In that way i disconnect, i get some work done and i aslo have 30 minutes to relax a little bit before bed
Sofia N.
Yeah but Iโ€™m scared if the dark so itโ€™s hard to make it like DARK, but I still try, today itโ€™s very light ๐Ÿ’ก but Iโ€™m trying to make it lighter.
Peyton S.
Not at all. I always wake up tired because Iโ€™m an up so late on my devices. Whenever I look at the time I feel very disappointed that I did it again. I am trying to build a habit of going to bed and disconnecting at a reasonable time. I am slowly making progress and whenever I look at the time it reminds me of what I want and need. Sometimes I will leave my phone down stairs so it doesnโ€™t disturb or tempt me.
Charmaine G.
Lol ..Honey no it isn't? We are here on the answering these questions which keeps me connected ..O I have to be motivated to do better…**WhenYouKnowBetterYouChoosebetter. .you will have to want better If you
Pernille T.
Disconnecting is so much Harder than it needs to be. Iโ€™ve gotten too addicted my phone, and that is something i want to change
Sam Z.
No, it hasn't. Something that helped me was to not expect too much from myself. Taking small steps to reach my goal. In this case, take 30 mins to disconnect and try doing something productive. Read a book, cook something, etc (whatever makes you happy!). Remember you must enjoy it. What's the point otherwise? After a couple of days, try extending the time to an hour, and slowly continue this till you reach your goal.

You can do it! I believe in you!

Muskan N.
Being a teenager in this Gen-z generation, it isnโ€™t something that comes easily. I have, however, seen my myself grow to be more effective at this as Fabulous now sets daily goals for me to motivate me to disconnect.
Keith O.
Disconnecting gives me time to spend more time with my family and do fun activities that I can't on my phone. I can draw, play a board game, read a book.. the possibilities are endless! So yes, it is very easy for me ๐Ÿ™‚
Amy J.
It was easy at the beginning. But it recently became difficult. I think if I skip on day of not disconnecting, it affects everything.
Ian F.
In what way? Disconnecting from people is unfortunately very easy. Disconnecting from the world and reality, also easy. Disconnecting from my phone? That's significantly more difficult.
Aaron C.
Yes, but sometimes I really need to check something on my phone and one thing leads to another and I start scrolling on it. I still try my best to ignore my phone completely but it just doesn't works sometimes.
Abigail T.
It really depends on the day. We all have days that are easier than others, and these fluctuations are normal. Sometimes it is really easy for me to disconnect and focus all of my energy into a hobby, something I love, or productive work. On the days that it's not easy, I try to start with short periods of time to disconnect. By the end, I'll either feel better and devote more time, or I won't but at least I still committed some time to it anyways. When it's really hard to find time, something is always better than nothing.
Charley J.
no it is not distraction is everywhere and I find myself up at 3am again. its 3am and I not even started to disconct. I finally start to disconct and I normally get to sleep at 5am I got to get up at 8am. It doesn't help that I'm in pain and have problems sleeping and disconnecting because of that. who wants to sit and relax when a rude intrusion of pain keeps popping up at inconvenient time's. If I'm hounst I'm not sure how to disconct I'm not sure what to do or how long to do it for.
Ivy Z.
When you first disconnect from something, it makes you feel great, u see urself going a long way without whatever you've disconnected from. But as time goes it gets a little difficult so u just have to keep reminding urself the reason why u disconnected in the first place. That's how it's like for me
Natasha Y.
I was surprised how easy it was. I started reading again forgetting how much I really love and enjoy it, more than TV or games. So for my unplug time I read, or write letters or journal or create my to do list or schedule etc. I have also been using this app to take on new challenges such as the 14 day challenge to keep active with some kind of exercise no matter how small. I also have a membership with the YMCA and use me time to go to the hot tub and swim I'm spending time with a friend almost weekly now.
Jane N.
It's surely not easy unless I find a nice activity that I enjoy doing while I disconnect. Try to do something nice when you want to unplug, something that could distract you from your devices.
Gustav E.
I find disconnecting at bedtime hard. Mainly because I am doing various online fitness challenges and I cannot log my steps until the end of the day when I'm in bed. I then check my progress which can take some time. Ideally this time I should be spending without my phone.

When I've finished I put on the music on this app and spend some time being greatful and praying . Last night I opened the window because of the heat and listened to things going by out my window and the birds. The gentle breeze helped my to disconnect and prepare for sleep.

Piotr X.
It's not always easy to find time to stop at the end of the day and disconnect. I usually do it while being already In bed when I try to calm myself and ease my mind by letting go of all day worries and things.
Timmothy O.
Sometimes it is difficult to disconnect. I have questions filling my mind that I need to look up, or I have to check if anyone is texting me. I find it easiest to put my phone out of sight to help disconnect.
Naja Z.
It depends on how much I did in that particular day but normally it takes me awhile to unplug and disconnect. I have a very busy schedule so it can be hard for me to calm down my mind enough to fall asleep. At the end of the day after I have eaten a good dinner I get ready for bed wash my face brush my teeth shower etc when I get ready I like to listen to some music to help my mind start to turn off and relax. Then I usually watch something or read a book. I also like to journal out my thoughts from the day to let the day rest and move on. Iโ€™m not sure if I answered your question how you wanted but I hope this is helpful.
Lea X.
Yes and now Iโ€™m
Not attached to the whole social media life although I will look every once and awhile for updates on Hawaii/I say watching sermons and inspirational speaker are my hard point, playing around with an new app that help self confidence or help building personal goals ties me up a lot writing in my calendar or reminders I feel apps on my phone takes up a lot of time
But yea once I opened into the web or social media I can get stuck on for a while my apps will often at time take time away from hanging out with kids so I would still like to lesson it
Ayati I.
It WAS not but now it is. If you are getting problems disconnecting then here is what I did
โ€ข Keep your phone aside
Do meditation or any other relaxing activity (without any gadget )
โ€ข After that just sleep or study
Sofia Z.
No, sometimes I'll be on my phone and other devices for hours and hours and even spend my whole day on them. Just recently I've been training myself with little rewards like getting to go to the store and getting ice cream or a small prize like makeup or a small piece of jewelry.
Ahmet T.
Its not that easy, usually when i dissconect i draw, or, i count as "disconecting" when i go to my circus and skateboarding classes. When i draw i feel like using my phone at the same time but idk why! I wish it would be easier for me.
Dorottya F.
Depends. If i'm with my loved ones than it is easy. But when I'm alone ore facing something challanging I gravitate back to my phone and the internet. I have a very high screen time. Bit also I my hobbies and my schoolworks mostly happens online. So I just forgive myself when I overuse the internet and I try to see the situation I'm in realisticly.
Ash N.
not really. my best friend is long distance and i enjoy talking to him a lot, so it's really difficult for me to stop talking to him, especially when we didn't talk much during the day because we were both busy. but i'm doing it little by little and it's really improving my sleep
Herm Nio B.
No it's not a habit of going on my phone before sleep is something I got used to doing it is a challenge either hard or easy for someone just go with it in small steps and you will achieve your goals
Maliyah Y.
Disconnecting may be easy depending on the day behind. Was it easy? Was it stressful? It all depends on how you make it.
Brenda N.
On my own, not at all. But there are tons of ASMRs online that put me in the right headspace to just disconnect. And my phone is set to turn off a a certain time so I don't worry to much about it running down while I sleep.
Marion Z.
No it's never been easy for me. Weather it's stopping a bad habit or trying something new or quiting a social media I've never been the best. But I alway try my harder and a little at a time I do it. You can to.
Lucien Q.
No, I find it difficult to put my phone down but I also hate silence so have to put sound on and then I get sucked back into being on my phone
Caroline X.
No not easy per se. I find it easiest to disconnect when Iโ€™m occupied with something else. Like in the flow of consciousness during meditation, creativity, cooking, or taking a nap. Sometimes even taking a walk. Disconnecting for me means connecting with something else. The real tangible and intangible, you know, anything away from my phone/laptop/or electronics/media.
Matthew O.
Kinda. I do not have social media. But I do love watching tv. So it is a little hard to stop watching tv and go to bed. It is a habit I have to break.
Kiara Q.
No it is not. We are always concerned about the people we have a close relationship with and we would like to hear from once again. Disconnecting is one of the hardest things we all can do because we have spent too much scrolling and always on blue-screens; remember that the most time we spend is where our hearts
L Cidas Z.
It is never easy, it's like given chocolate and be told not to eat but you are craving for it. It only takes displine, mature and healthy people to do it. You should try it, it's worth it
Shushanik N.
No, as all my work life is in my phone, so even to read a book I use a gadget not a real book for now as I travel a lot and do not hold physical books. Alarm in in my phone, meditation apps , e-books, everything. That makes disconnecting very hard at night .
Honey I.
Itโ€™s really hard for me. I set my disconnect to 9pm but it sometimes extends to 10:30pm because there are things that I need to do past 9pm.
Dimitrios F.
Yes it is, in fact it's like drinking water to me and here is how I do it, it is actually very simple I just say I have to go to sleep and then I disconnect. Hope it helped you ๐Ÿ˜Š.
Dikshita X.
No, it is not easy but help of disconnect chalenge in the fabulous chalenge category . It reduces my addiction of checking my phone and other device
Cora O.
Disconnecting can be difficult if the device is always near you. What I find that helps is putting your phone in the drawer by your bed, or on a dresser across the room, or some other place that puts it out of your sight and reach.
Jane N.
Yes, as I long as I find something to distract me from the internet. Try and find an activity you enjoy doing: read a book, work out, journal etc
Ma Lys Z.
It was, I think I have been doing it subconsciously for a long time now. But now that it's part of a routine it feels better.
Basile C.
No. Disconnecting is difficult. There is always something to look at, a piece of information, an action to add on a to-do list for tomorrow, some thoughts that need to be answered, etc
Kwther N.
Not that much, specifically when you didn't plan it with more exciting activities or when you're stressed and would kill to quite sounds of your mind.
Mah E.
Normally it's easy for me but as I'm getting older it's every day more difficult to get away fo my problems and phone, internet… I try to do less screen time but it's kinda difficult. This app is helping me a little bit though.
Amadou Q.
No I really donโ€™t find disconnecting easy because I always want to know whatโ€™s going on I never give myself time to reflect on myself because Iโ€™m always on my phone
Sophia O.
Yes although it was not always this way. I often cared so much about what others thought about me that I didnโ€™t even ask myself if I cared about or even respected them. Most of the time, the answer was no. This slowly helped me start letting go and living for myself and my own happiness.
Jamie T.
No. I easily get bored and I need to pick my phone and procrastinate again and again over and over all day, do nothing useful for the whole day and then feel bad about it but do nothing to change it
Rocio E.
It wasnโ€™t always easy, but disconnecting is a lot easier once you realize what your priorities are in who you want to be. I wanted to become a well-rested person, so that meant making bedtime a hard set thing I couldnโ€™t change or avoid. Once you find joy in it and find that you can be a lot more productive disconnecting and focusing, youโ€™ll never want to go back!
Nadeschda O.
No, I have to do it very consciously. I am, however, among those who get physically sick if I spend too much time looking at screens, so my body forces me to unplug sometimes, if I don't do it in due time myself.
Garance E.
Not really. I use music and subliminals that i have downloaded on my phone and laptop to help me sleep. This can make it difficult to fully unplug. However, to help with this, i am getting a cd player to put my playlists onyo a disk to listen to to help fully unplug and remove all destractions to helpe sleep.
Olivia Y.
Disconnecting is not always easy but after a long day I know I will feel better if I do it that is why itโ€™s the first thing in my night routine.
Roxane E.
Yes, i like the wallper, music and text what comes with it in rocket presentation is so mutch easier with it and I am definitelly more aware with this app.
Janette F.
Yes .. actually I don't like to being in online.so it's easy for me to disconnect electronic items before sleep..once would you try to avoid the distractions of electronic devices, you would get more time to self care.
Sebastian B.
No, not at first but I make it to where there are things I would rather do like read a really good book or find a coloring page I would love to work in and that makes it a whole bunch easier!
Nicole F.
Disconnecting is sometimes easy for me. Some days I am less motivated than others. This leads me to being lazy and more focused on a screen than I am the world around me. The best way for me to push myself is to remember why I want to get better and more focused on moving forward.
Alpoim F.
Disconnecting is not very easy for me especially when for someone who spends most of the time scrolling on Instagram, in search of some motivation.
Jess E.
Disconnecting creates ease. I have an easy time of it when I am able to move freely and that is my responsibility. Itโ€™s as easy as I make it. Hard work and goals make it happen.
Sarah T.
No, itโ€™s not after disconnecting I get distracted easily by anything and start overthinking about my whole day or things that happened in the past
Kelly K.
Sometimes it's easy, sometimes it hard. It all depends what I'm currently doing or what I'm going to do later while disconnecting.
Thasneem N.
Yeah. It is. journaling and reading a book before bed helps me unwind. Iโ€™m not much glued to social media. And when Iโ€™m focused and goal oriented itz easy for me to skip to my routine. But on those low days i tend to keep scrolling. Usually happens when Iโ€™m anxious. Trying to find other ways to relax.

Daphn U.
Yeah itโ€™s easy but at first it might be boring but when you disconnect from social media you can actually have a good happy healthy life
Malthe E.
Disconnecting from my phone is hard there's always another thing I 'need' to check – emails, the weather, how much something is
Lucas S.
No. I'm used to filling my mind with distractions to keep me from thinking about the situations that need addressing in my life. Disconnecting in the evenings, although giving me the freedom to sleep earlier, forces me to address those issues mentally.
Vicky G.
No. It is a consistent effort to remember to disconnect as is work, social life, family life and sometimes a form of meditation. However, this quickly falls into a scroll hole of emptiness. So, I will keep remembering to step away from the screen and step outside!
Burkard S.
I find it difficult to be away from my phone. I know this is a problem but I continuously gravitate towards it. I have been trying to read ebooks instead of going on social media as often and I'm finding that helps
Gabe F.
No. I have a hard time waiting to have answer to whatever question I might have, and being able to get that answer immediately makes it hard to disconnect.
Rig B.
Not really. 2 days before I deleted most of the social medias from my phone, but I already can spend my time unnecessarily on my phone. I'm a little angry for it, and this make me feel more that I have to block down my brain with those much and fast informations….
Charline O.
It can be sometimes. I am used to always scrolling my life away on Instagram but since trying to change that I feel a little more naturally present,not online present. Gathered in my own realty rather than the realty created by strangers on the internet. Ik itโ€™s corny and cheesy to brag about now being on your phone to much but to me I see it as a healthy habit of being more present and not caught up in the fakeness of posing for content Iโ€™m mostly on my phone to talk to people I care about and mediate and stretch using apps. I hope to continue being on my phone less
Gabriel F.
No. This is something I'm currently working on. I have limited my screen time quite a bit from in the past, but I am addicted to my phone and social media.
Malou C.
Sometimes it'easy and sometimes it's difficult when I feel discomfortable it's easy to disconnecting but I'm feeling good to be honest it's also easy to disconnecting especially when I need the time for myself to think about something or I have the feeling to be alone so I disconnected social media speaking with friends and keep and try to keep my mind clean and clear
Cristina G.
i think disconnecting is not totally easy for me, as at first it felt like some kind of torture, but in time it became easier, learning how to spend my time without technology
Sanwali F.
It's never easy. But you must commit yourself to your priorities. If you want a disconnection, then you must prioritise it. Only then it will work.
S L Na A.
sometimes yeah, depends a lot on what I'm feeling at the moment. the same way i get tired of social interactions, i also get tired of staying on my phone. normally i'd spend time with my pets or reading something, doing some craft or even sleeping
Emma A.
No.

I disconnect from people/the world instantly, but I cannot disconnect from my devices.

I am learning that this may be associated with my ADHD & autism, but that doesn't make it easier to manage.

Cortnie F.
Great question! It really depends on how much time you spend on youโ€™re phone. But what helps for for me is I silence phone so the sound of notifications coming in wont distract me. While it iI s silenced, do other things that you like, thatโ€™s an all day project, or maybe you could catch up on some work you need to do. Hope this helps!
Yeow D.
Not really actually, because as soon as I did, my mind goes blank and I just can't find entertainment anymore. Every time I want to do something while disconnected, I feel like something is missing like a song or a video playing in the background and so on. However, I am trying my best to get rid of this addiction and focus on the real world.
Alfredo A.
It's not very easy, I try to leave my phone in a different room for an hour or two at a time. Making sure there's enough distance between my phone and watch so I don't get notifications. I also don't use my laptop for social media platforms.
Evelyn N.
I feel like it depends on the situations. And it does take time, and practice, but in the end I feel a sense of peace that makes the wait worth it. It isnโ€™t always easy though. I usually go step by step from all of the things on my mind and visualize them, like as a balloon floating away, to best let them go.
Caleb G.
It is different all the time. And it also commands on how "connected" I was before. But I would say it is still kind of easy for me to disconnecting. But I really need to be in to the thing I am doing to calm down. If I read I really need to be in that book and be concentrated. And if I meditate I need to be focused on that. So it is different from time to time but is often really easy. And it makes it soooo much easier to fall asleep if I do a disconnecting thing before!
Melissa O.
Not really but thinking about better ,fresh morning leading to more productivity and satisfaction I try to stop screentime by 10.30pm. You could also use some silly tricks like think you will look pretty if you sleep early etc.!
Florence E.
Not really, I realise I don't know how to do it. Also i have a hard time being alone with my toughts, disconnecting is scary to me.
I've dealts with really negatives toughts before and I still struggle with the anxiety it gives me
Maissy O.
No, as of this generation, itโ€™s really hard to focus on disconnecting. I have tried and itโ€™s like I couldnโ€™t bare a minute without my phone or wifi. You need specific tricks to trick yourself to make you disconnect.
Manon Z.
Yes, I find it easier to disconnected in order to give myself time to process my thoughts alone. It keeps me in check with my own mind and body.
Adrianna S.
No, at times it's very hard. It seems like almost every time I start to disconnect from the world whether it's through setting timers on my phone or fasting from social media something else or someone else grabs my attention. Sometimes it's hard to shut everything off when the world around you is so loud. But what helps me to better disconnect is putting my phone out of my sight or muting a conversation or conversations for a time until I'm ready to rejoin the world after disconnecting for such a time.
Abra O A.
Not really, when I'm interested in a person and get disconnected with them it's hard. It feels like I lost a part of myself
Pablo Q.
No, it's not easy but I can disconnect . But sometimes I am not disciplined. I'm not used to being disconnected. I am always on my phone. I can't disconnect.
Ma L T.
No, I feel I have to do something all the time and keep my phone with me all the time. I am living away from my family and may be that's affecting my behaviour.
Adrianna S.
At times it's not because when I easily become bored I find myself picking up my phone. However, what has helped me to disconnect from my phone is by setting timers of how long I spend on my phone with games, social media, talking to friends & how much time I spend not being on my phone. Doing this has helped me to disconnect better & has helped me to create good habits by doing so. I find that the I'm disconnected from my phone that I'm more engaged in the world such as what's going on around me. Set timers on your phone,
Victoria O.
Not really tbh, but we all need to work on it, for our own good and for our future self. We need to improve it. Most importantly improve our focus.
Wandile C.
I can easily disconnect from people but from technology and information not so much. Which is sad because it should be the other way around.
Jeannie F.
Itโ€™s easy especially when Iโ€™ve had a long day and a lot of a screen time already. Itโ€™s also easier when I get off social media at least half an hour before bed.
Leia W.
Disconnecting from my emotions is hard. Disconnecting from the outside world is easier. socials are hitbor miss. I am moderately confident I can disconnect with focus.
Augusta C.
yeah, it helps me a lot with calming down and i have set boundaries and discipline within myself to the point that disconnecting is easy, just take value off of being online and then your brain doesn't think its worth it.
Heather C.
Not really. As someone who has grown up in an age of technology, surrounded by it my entire (short) life, it can be hard to step away sometimes. I plan to slowly extend the time I spend a day disconnecting from screens and doing something like reading, as I think it would be beneficial for my mental wellbeing (and my eyes in the long run). Iโ€™ve begun with 15 minutes of no technology. Hopefully soon Iโ€™ll be up to an hour straight of no technology – but for now, itโ€™s a good start.
Ava Z.
For me as a teenager, no it is not the easiest. But I have found some things to try to make it easier like turning off notifications after a certain hour, planning exactly what I will be doing that night to prepare for sleep. Sometimes I even have to ask my mom to put a screen time password on my social media apps. Disconnecting is a 2024 goal of mine and I plan to hold my self accountable and try my hardest to find connection with the world around me and better sleep.
Maryam O.
To be honest it's not. It's just really hard to get off phone when u r fully immersed in it. Sometimes I spend 4 hours without a break using phone and I'm usually doing useless stuff :/
Arlette E.
No itโ€™s not easy because itโ€™s kind of a calming and distracting helpful tool sometimes when my mind wonโ€™t stop running being on my phone helps quiet my mind and focus on what I am reading or watching.
Constance C.
Yes and No. Yes because I love the time at night when I turn off all of my devices, and just journal or read in silence with all of my main lights off and only a reading light to read by. It's so cozy, and it's one of my favorite times of the day. No because it's often hard to turn off those same devices. Sometimes it's because I need to finish schoolwork, sometimes it's because I can't stop scrolling. Either way, I want to get better about intentionally and consistently disconnecting, and being at peace with my day.
