For the past five consecutive Saturdays, I have refrained from laying either of my eyes on any screens. Say what?! Yep, this includes: iPhone, computer, and television. I carefully observed my experience during this time and have come to truly eye-opening conclusions. Eliminating screens appears to have the following benefits…
The phone is the most tempting and easy device to escape from reality on. So, on Friday night, I set up an away message, put it on “Do Not Disturb” which silences all tones, and then tuck the device away – out of sight; out of mind.
I strongly encourage that everyone try a No-Screen day. Even just one day to observe how it makes you feel.
Thanks for reading.
