Following on from Friday’s post, less screen time is something I need to implement.
I’m a bugger for picking up my phone and scrolling through social media before I even get out of bed. Or for doing so once I get into bed before I fall asleep. Or for mindlessly doing so when sat on the sofa/at work/anytime I get a spare couple of minutes.
I could however be doing something more productive with my spare time. One of my resolutions for this year was less screen time and, honestly, I’ve been crap at this. It’s a resolution which will be getting rolled over (alongside forcing some more exercise into my life, but more on that in another post!)
Jonny is much better at not being glued to his phone than me. Part of this is because he genuinely doesn’t care about what other people are up to, so long as he is happy. I envy him for this.
The new mission is to make sure I engage with the real world a bit more often. No more scrolling before I get out of bed. In fact, no more scrolling in bed full stop. The evening slot can definitely be replaced by reading a good book. I didn’t realise until recently how much I miss reading. I read voraciously as a child/teenager/into my early twenties, before smart phones were a thing. Reading is something I love and want to do more of.
Do you have any recommendations for a good book, or three?
