Screen-Free Week: How & Why to Have a Social-Media-Free Weekend by Allison Peacock
I know how hard it can be to put down that smartphone! Yet for the past two years I’ve done just that every weekend so I can slow down and “smell the roses.” Disengaging digitally helps me find more enjoyment with my kids, my yard, my friends and my bike! Try this:
- At 5 p.m. on Friday, post a goodbye to your followers for the weekend.
- Then, don’t even think about the Internet for two days.
- A quick 9 a.m. Monday check-in will bring you back to what the rest of the world is up to.
And a weekend of digital peace and quiet means you tackle it with a fully recharged internal battery!
