I would journal about my emotions and how life's going and sometimes I hang out with my friends or my family. Also trying small hobbies like drawing, coloring and even just taking a walk helps.
Preparation, if I make sure before I start my bedtime routine that I've dealt with any remaining business and make sure I've already found an audio book I'm ready to settle into.
Literal disconnection in the sense of being offline starts fairly easy by just leaving my phone in another room, or not even taking it with me at all. In the sense of disconnecting from the daily grind I find it helps me to go outside, be in nature or with people I enjoy spending time with. Of course a no-phone rule is still important here.
During the day it would be contact with nature – walk with my dog in the forest, listening to birds chirping. Playing with my dog also does the job. Watching movies with my husband is another great thing. And definitely gardening 😍
The best way to disconnect is to keep your phone away and take a walk or carry out a hobby that needs care, focus and heart 🙂
My best way to disconnect is through exercise. I love taking long hot showers, cooking, medicating when I have the patience to, and listening to soft classical piano music, lo-fi beats, and the rain. Thank you spotify☺
I have to keep my phone nearby for possible emergencies, so what I do is plug it in, and put it face down. Then I grab a book and turn away from the nightstand. This helps me forget about my phone!
I think the best way for me to disconnect particularly from social media like Facebooks, Twitter and Instagram is by removing the apps from my phone. It really helped me from always spending time scrolling through unbeneficial feeds that gave me nothing other than heavy feeling likes unworthiness and jealous.
Turning off my phone 📱 and paying attention to the big task that needs urgent attend. I also look at the end result of completing homework he task.
- What do you think about E-Books for reading?
- It some times can take me 2hrs of lying in silence before I fall asleep. Is it better to commit to the 2hrs or can I watch a movie (usually Fantasia, literally like every night). I have picked up the habit of reading for 30min before bed, but then thinking smooth the book keeps me up. Help please.
- Can you remind me to unplug please?
- Do you think that reading a book on your phone counts as using it? Or is it just reading?
- Do you think addiction prevents you ? Or relation?
- What really is the disconnect habit? It doesn’t give very much detail. I’ve been using it as an alarm half an hour before bed to know that I have to set my alarms for the next day and stop looking at my phone until the next day. Is this the intention? Also, Han Solo Star Wars Movie was amazing!
- What time do you disconnect, do you go to sleep right after disconnecting?
- I like to sit on my phone for a bit right before I go to bed but sometimes the phone can disrupt my sleep how can I fix this?
- I tend to have so many questions and reminders to set up before I go to sleep. How do I approach this without technology?
- I play a lot of video games, and my old roomate watched a lot of tv. I also grew up in a house with lots of people. Do you also have difficulty falling alseep to silence and no electronics on in the back ground?
