Digital Detox

What’s your relationship like with your device(s)? ⁠

No really. Are you spending more time in the world of ‘social’ than the real one? ⁠(I was)⁠

I run an online business. My entire livelihood is dependent on everything that’s an @apple these days, so when I realised that I was spending more time here, than anywhere else, I had to make some big changes to make this choice of work, work for me.⁠

I’m still playing around with ways to build and engage with my community online while keeping myself in the ‘real world’, and here is what’s come up for me so far:⁠

– Limit the scroll!! It is an energy, time, mentally draining, sucker. Set clear boundaries with your time here. ⁠

– Create before you consume (which I learnt from one of my favourite authors @marieforleo) ⁠consuming first is the quickest way to kill your own creativity.⁠

– Do not pick up your phone first thing in the morning. No emails. No Socials. No messages.⁠ No excuses. ⁠

– And just as important, do not scroll before bed. It will signal to your brain you’re not ready for sleep, and your mind/body will take more time to down-regulate robbing you of a good night’s sleep. ⁠

– DO schedule time for your emails, messages, and engagement with content that lifts you, inspires you or supports others. ⁠And for business owners DO schedule your content in advance. ⁠

– Move all devices outside of the bedroom, and go back to a good old fashion alarm clock. ⁠

I have yet to perfect this. Some days demand different things. But I am already feeling so much more clarity, freedom, and better focus throughout my day from being more mindful of how much time I spend in this space. ⁠

I’m interested to know, what works for you. Is there anything else you’ve found helpful to limit your screen time here? ⁠
