Disconnecting is more than turning, all, electric items off….. Its about taking the time to centre and meditation helps with thar
I do keep my phone next to my bed so I have an alarm set on my phone but it turns off automatically at 11pm and onagain at 4pm as well as having the internet off on my phone while I'm sleeping so I don't get any notifications. This generally stops me from going on my phone and I make sure I say goodnight to everyone before I turn off my wifi on my phone. It really helps sleep knowing that all my friends and family know that I am not replying because I am asleep and that I am not ignoring them and having them know I am doing this whole Fabulous thing they are supportive. A good friend will understand that u want to disconnect before bed 🙂

- Without using a device or kindle, what Is your strategy to disconnect and unplug every night and do this consistently?
- What has been your biggest struggle with the disconnect habit?
- I use a sleep app to keep track of sleep cycles which I find very useful. I also use sleep stories sometimes from the Calm app. These motivate me to get to bed at a reasonable time and actually go to sleep. But I’m not literally unplugging. Also we don’t have a landline anymore so I do need to keep my phone on in case of emergencies. Is there a middle ground here?
- well done!! what do you do when you cant sleep and your mind is bein a tosser?
- Do you turn your phone off completely or just put it away somewhere? And where then?
- How do you not worry about missing out on a snap/message from a friend?
- Whilst it is easier during the week, I tend to stay up later at the weekend. Any ideas on how to combat this?
