I think because you are used too, it’s like part of your life. You check your IG, Facebook, emails, WhatsApp…everything. You are to dependent…but when you understand that you need your time, your space, nobody telling you what’s correct and what not. You start looking very different everything, you what to be alone with no social media around, because it can get you think that you are not good just the way you are, and that not true.
It is hard to unplug because you are used to the constant and easy to get stimuli that the phone offers you in many ways. Be aware that you can find all these things still at a later point. Now you have more important goals and to reach those its best you unplug.
- How often do you fail at disconnecting in the evenings?
- Do you turn off flight mode when you sleep?
- Do you ever use your phone as a security blanket?
- How exactly can you resist the urge to to constantly check your phone?
- Is there anything else to do but read? I don’t have a music player besides my phone
- How do you stop looking at your phone first thing?
- What do you do in the time between disconnecting & unplugging and falling asleep? To get ready for bed?
- My husband and I watch TV after our son goes to bed. This is our wind down time together, but often means we are looking at a screen until quite late at night. How do I fit watching what I want to watch with my husband into the day without having screen time before bed?
- How do you success at avoiding your phone? How do you manage to break the addiction?
- How do you replace your screen time at bedtime? As a mom, sometimes after their bedtime is the only time I get to myself. It’s hard to use that time to wind down and go to sleep when it’s the only “me” time I have.
