How I got off my phone and on with my life


I wanted to stop mindlessly using my phone to entertain me, and learned from author Cal Newport that I shouldn’t expect to simply stop using my phone, I had to replace it with other things.

Enter, permission to do ALL the things

I picked up my crochet hooks for the first time in years. I was rusty at first, but now have toques for my niece and husband.

I went to the library and got a stack of books. I now read before bed and never leave the house without a book

I started listening to an audiobook and made a rule I could only listen when moving- on went the runners and I started looking forward to enjoying the Fall changes alongside plot changes. 

I started blogging again- seriously I stopped consuming media and instead make my own!

If you limited your phone time what could you do/make/accomplish/experience/love? What did you use to love to do before you learned to swipe? Think about it.
