Is your phone the first thing you reach for in the morning and the last thing you touch before bed? Do you frequently pick it up ‘just to check’, only to look up forty-five minutes later wondering where the time has gone?
If you do, then you’re like the 99% (this is not a fact, don’t quote me) of people who are also addicted to their phones. They are our life these days. They are full of all our details, plans and banking so we would be pretty messed up without them.
Even though we love our phones a lot, and I mean a lot, a lot. We all still need a little bit of phone free time in our lives.
Well, here’s a few things that you can do to spend some time without your phone.
♡ Write a handwritten letter to someone you love or appreciate.
♡ Try out a new hairstyle.
♡ Do some colouring from a colouring book.
♡ Watch a film or television show.
♡ Try out some new make up styles or trends.
♡ Go for a walk.
♡ Draw something that makes you happy. Maybe your pet or a special place.
♡ Apply a face mask or some kind of facial treatment.
♡ Try out a new outfit using the clothes from your wardrobe.
♡ Build a pillow fort.
♡ Take your camera outside and have yourself a mini photoshoot.
♡ Paint your nails.
♡ Write a song, poem or story.
♡ Clean your home a little bit.
♡ Spend some time in the garden. You could do some maintenance or just sit around.
♡ Do some exercise. Maybe it’s at the gym or maybe it’s a home. It all counts.
♡ Go for a shopping spree and treat yourself to something new.
♡ Dance like no one is watching.
♡ Play some brain puzzles. Sudoku is my favourite but crosswords are good too.
♡ Take yourself on a coffee date.
♡ Play tourist in your own hometown. Explore more.
♡ Spend some time lying on the ground and looking up at the sky.
♡ Zone out for a while.
