Phone vs me

 

Hey everyone! So, on “CHOOSEdays” (Tuesday’s) I will choose a challenge/ dare to document. And I recently accepted TO NOT USE INSTAGRAM& SNAPCHAT for 30 days!!

& girrrlllll the first hour I wanted to give in to look at everyone’s snap. All bad.

So I wouldn’t be tempted, I deleted the apps off my phone. But did that stop me the first 2 days from constantly checking my phone, and then remembering, oh yea!, there’s nothing to look at ha!

By the end of the first week, I was getting to the gym by 9am, finished putting on a full face & hair before 12pm. Instead of leaving my laundry on my bed for a week, I put everything away the same day! The list goes on, I was getting shit done.

During the second week, I was able to get to work an hour early, that I had time to sit at Starbucks, read a book, while eating my lunch. I was becoming those coffee shop people haha

I noticed how much time I waste using my phone, looking at everyone’s lives just Creepin on everyone’s pages.  Yes I admit creeping lol but who doesn’t!! Anyways, I focused more on what I needed to take care of on a daily basis.

I recommend everyone try a social media cleanse once! It’s such an eye opener how much a tiny electrictronic device can take over your lives. If you don’t think you’re hooked to you’re phone, try this for a day and you’ll see how attached you really are. Don’t get me wrong, i love what social media can do,  but too much of anything can be bad… but Too much of good whiskey is barely enough haha okay okay, just kidding.

This was a great challenge to step away and spend more time with my daughter and not snap chat every second of her life. On one of our park dates I noticed a 8 year old on his tablet sitting on the monkey bars. Like come on, we can’t let our babies be so stuck to technology! Esp at a play ground key word “play”. After this challenge I noticed how less I pick up my phone, or Check apps. My daughter picks up my habits and that is not a habit I want for her. Even her behavior has improved. we set times when we would be on our phones/ tablets etc. Somedays I catch myself getting sucked into the apps, so I just delete it off my phone for the day.
