Disconnect from the device

Weekly exercise: "Disconnect from the device".

This week we will take our phone out of the room every night before we go to bed. In the morning we will wait at least half an hour, from the moment we wake up until the moment we touch the phone.

Recommendations for those who want to succeed in practice and profit from it:

  1. buy an alarm clock
  2. buy two interesting books and read them before going to bed.
  3. to put a small note on the dresser that says: "How was the quality of sleep tonight"? and to reflect and answer every morning.
  4. Plan in advance what you will do in the first half hour of the day to avoid touching your phone.

Why did I choose this exercise?

Because I'm addicted to my phone and want to find other ways to deal with that addiction. Because I know how important sleep quality is and I am trying to find ways to improve it. Because I am very interested in seeing what impact exercise has on my sleep quality and my quality of life in general. Because the cell phone is replacing important human interactions.

Playing around with your cell phone before bed is often a waste of time and energy. This activity creates a buzz in the head that interferes with relaxation before bed. It hurts the neck and hands, because of the posture. It hurts the eyes, the strong light before bedtime does not allow them to adjust to sleep.

Also, studies show that sleeping near the phone is unhealthy because of the radiation.

So let's try to keep all that away from us this week.

This exercise is more challenging than the others, but I highly recommend giving it a try. We have become so accustomed to our phones that we don't even realize how addicted we are and what a powerful influence our addiction has on us.

Tell us if you dare to give it a try 😉
