Everyone is doing intermittent fasting as a diet/get healthy plan these days.
You know, the thing where you only eat between about noon and 8PM?
Well, how about this: intermittent phone fasting!?
This is where you only use your phone for a few hours at a time throughout the day and thereby avoid insulting your friends and family and you stop getting in so much trouble with your boss.
It’s an idea whose time has come.
We all know that it’s no good for babies to have you on your phone while you’re nursing.
We ALSO all know it’s no good for kids to see you on your phone when they need you to be looking at them and telling them how great it is that they can run/jump/draw/pull down the curtains so well.
AND we all know it’s no good for your relationship when you’re supposed to be cuddling but actually you’re looking at your phone.
I could go on.
But you get the idea.
How about letting yourself gorge on your phone for a few hours a few times a day? You decide when the best times of day for you are. And the rest of the time, you put it away!
Turn it off.
Don’t get alerts, dings, twangs or alarms.
Just turn it off!
I guarantee you of the following:
- You will feel less distracted and harried.
- Your children will feel better and more nurtured.
- Your partner and/or friends will like you better.
- You will actually get a few things done.
- You will feel proud of yourself for wasting less time.
Good luck! And if you get hungry, just eat a little popcorn.
