How to take a break from your iphone

Put down
the phone and no one gets hurt”. Taking some time away from your smart phone
may seem like a death sentence to boredom, but it’s actually really refreshing
and recharging to tune out. I’ve been implementing what I’ve dubbed “Saturdays
sans social media” here and there, and I’ve really found that it’s helped me to
get back out and participate in my own life. 

How to take a break from your iphone

when I visit my family or I’m on vacation I’m actually much better at tuning
out, but there’s something about being in the city that I equate with having to
be working and/or being involved.  So the
first weekend that I decided to “tune out for the day” I really underestimated how
difficult it was to not check my phone by accident. I found myself looking for
my phone and then remembering that it was plugged into the charger, and that I
was not touching it. Of course I had to leave the house and eliminate all
temptation (that’s what all addicts do
?). When the 24 hours had passed I felt like I really didn’t care as
much about what was going on, and it certainly lessened my checking in the days
that followed. 

After a few
of my Saturday Sans Social Medias had passed and I felt so great about them; I
decided to implement some other everyday changes. I altered my settings so that
there are no notifications displayed on my lock screen. I’ve even gone so far
as to remove my text messaging from popping up too. I figure if I don’t see it,
it’s not happening, and I’m not missing anything (FYI my phone is on, so if
there’s an emergency someone can still call me). 

A lot of
times when I’m “tuning out” from phone I like to attend hot yoga or a dance
class. Since phones are not allowed in either instance and my total focus is
required; it’s a great way to ditch my phone at the door, and all the concerns
that go with it. Removing myself from my phone helps me to pay attention to the
world around me, and be more mindful of what happening right now. Without my
phone I can effectively take it all in and commit it to memory rather than a
photo to be forgotten under some subtle sepia filter. Taking the time away from
my phone allows me to tune out from what everyone else is doing, and focus on
what I’m doing. I feel like not constantly checking Instagram, Twitter, and
Facebook allows me to be more a more original person because I’m doing what I
want to do and not what I think I should be doing.  Social media obviously has its place and I
love it for all that it is, but I also think its important to take a break to
recharge and re-center yourself, and I can think of nothing better than a great
dance or hot yoga class to do just that.
