What would happen if you switched off all of your devices for a day?
Phones, tablets, laptops, TVs — all of them switched off. Could you do it? How would it feel? What would you do instead?
My husband suggested we try a tech-free Saturday a few weeks ago.
We all suspect our phones are bad for our brains, which probably doesn’t help our MS symptoms. So, I decided to give it a try, and we had our first “tech-free Saturday,” with the mission of taking back control in a chaotic world.
Tip: It helps if your entire household agrees to do this, otherwise it can become distracting and pointless to do it alone.
On Friday night, we notified our families, switched off our phones, and put our tablets out of sight and our laptops in their bags. We put all of our devices in a cupboard out of the way. Out of sight, out of mind!
What happened next was interesting.
On Saturday morning, I woke up and realized my phone wasn’t in its normal charging port downstairs. I tried to figure out what was next. I’m the type of person who likes to wake up to a plan, and I purposely didn’t make one this time.
