The day I first unplugged I did quite literally sit there and wonder what to do. As I sat there for a few minutes, sitting unoccupied and without Social media as my babysitter, I realised the immensity of my time on social media. 4-5hrs a day, 30hrs/week, 120hrs/month. I would be wasting 1/5 of my entire life meaninglessly in front of a screen.
Now I have a list of things I can do and I’ve always wanted to do. Simple things from gardening and reading to taking up an old sport of mine, Taekwondo.
- How do you disconnect and then use your phone to do evening routine habits like mediation and checking off the fabulous tasks?
- Do you ever give yourself a “cheat day,” like on the weekend?
- Do you feel like your relationships can improve if you’re not on social media as much?
- What can I do at night time besides use my phone when I can’t fall asleep and my mind is racing?
- what is your method to avoid the phone?
- I’ve found that a lot of my screen time is actually spent messaging people – I don’t want to disconnect from people but how do I manage this?
- What do you do when you disconnect and unplug?
- Do others feel very down and disappointed about their habit too?
- Is it better to reply to texts or messages straight away so that you don’t feel pressured, or is it better to leave it until you feel ready?
- How do you disconnect for the night ?
