Happy Sunday lovelies! For today’s post I decided to share with you the ways I digital detox. If you’ve never heard of digital detoxing, then it’s essentially things to do which does not involve a laptop, TV or a phone. In this busy and fast running world I think it’s SO important to be able to put down our devices, and pick up something else to ‘entertain’ us. If you’re hooked so far, then please keep on scrolling.
So, digital detoxing. An article by ‘The Telegraph” explains that in the UK, people spend all in all 24 hours online per week. That’s around 15% of your life time and trust me the number is without a doubt planning on growing. In the US it is said that an adult spends around 6 hours a day in front of a screen. That’s 25% of your day! These numbers are both way too bad. Like come on! What happened to us? Instead of going on about what we could have done, let’s switch it around and talk about what we CAN do.
Bullet Journaling | If you’ve followed me for a littl’ while, you’ll know that I bullet journal. The purpose is to DIY a calendar and an in debt To Do list. Not only has planning made a lot of things so much easier, but there’s honestly nothing I enjoy more than to sit with a cuppa tea, music on my speaker and bullet journaling the up coming week. I highly recommend it!
Reading Books & Magazines | I LOVE READING! I know it’s not everyone whom is able to sit down with a book and not get distracted. However, for those of you which ARE able to do so, then I encourage you to pick up a book more often. Yes, it’s a lot easier to click ‘play’ on Netflix. But, reading is very rewarding in terms of your concentration, imagination and creativity. You simply can’t deny the studies.
Tidy, Clean & Organize | Either you enjoy it or it’s your absolute enemy. I’m one of the people who sometimes find it therapeutic. Either or, it’s got to be done. However, good music does make everything a little bit better. There’s definitely something about organizing that makes me feel more at peace, and they do say that a clear space is a clear mind.
Get out for a walk | Just like reading then walking is very beneficial in so many ways. Our human bodies were never made for being sat 6 hours at a screen. NO, it was ment for being outside and active. At the moment I’m dealing with a very tricky anxiety, and I must say that being outside for a walk is one of the best things to calm me down.
That’s it for today’s blog post. If you enjoyed it then please give it a like and let me know in the comments:
