As a follow up to my initial blog post on going for a week without my phone (READ IT HERE) I thought I’d use this post to do two things.
So without keeping you waiting much longer, here’s my video below. It is a compilation of the thoughts that were going through my head on the days without a phone. I have had to keep each day brief as I tend to waffle on for hours about things and it gets too much. This is an 8 minute video that I think you’ll enjoy.
Thanks for watching the video and if you saved it for later or just skimmed past it well, then we are no longer friends. Yep that’s right…
Nah I’m just kidding.
Getting back on my phone was like a duck to water although it was a little overwhelming in the first couple of days and it was hard to re-centre myself with an abundance of information and white noise to keep me going.
At the start of the week back on my phone it felt as though I had just been let loose in a cake shop with a sweet tooth and a hungry belly. I genuinely couldn’t stop using my phone. (On a side note I had some serious harassment from a person online and so I had to keep tabs on all my platforms before notifying the police.) That kept me pretty focused on my phone for a couple of days.
The truth is that the connectivity is a fantastic thing, as long as we can manage ourselves accordingly. I’m going to source an old alarm clock for the side of my bed going forwards and keep my phone away from me at night.
Before this whole challenge I had a few people say that they could never do it; it would be too hard. Others said that it would be too tough for me and I would cave in. I still managed to get it done and that is not a testament to my resilience it is just me sticking to a plan, to a goal.
If you have set goals for yourself or have a plan in your head then do not let what other people say knock your confidence. Stay the course with your goals, with your self- belief and you can achieve what you want to in this life.
Have a great week ahead!
Stay Strong and Keep Moving.
