Week 2 of my 30-day digital detox is done. I've been far from perfect, slipping into a few old habits when I was sick earlier this week. But, I'm proud of cutting out 95% of my digital distractions.
I've been shocked at how much more I'm forced to sit with my feelings. I use blogs, Instagram, and podcasts to not feel. A negative emotion comes up (whether that's stress, boredom, embarrassment, or sadness), and I want. On. My. Phone. In the absence of these digital distractions, I've had to just sit with my feelings. Just sit with my discomfort.
Wow. This has to be good for me, right? Two-weeks left.
Your challenge: do a one-day digital detox. You can do it!
