A year (trying to) spent offline
A dumb smartphone, 52 books, quitting social media, less apps and more connections
Still here. If you’re looking for a worthwhile New Year's resolution, why not quit doomscrolling?
Below are five things I thought were worth sharing this week:
This year has been my most unplugged year thus far; Not only in terms of less time spent online, but also more time enjoyed offline. On quitting social media, a dumb smartphone, 52 books challenge, and more.
A quote I want to share with you this week:
“It is easy to be heavy: hard to be light.”
— G.K. Chesterton
Trying. Trying. Trying.
A reason to quit searching for more bad news: Doomscrolling Is Slowly Eroding Your Mental Health but it will never actually stop the doom itself. Feeling informed can be a salve, but being overwhelmed by tragedy serves no purpose.
Two questions for you this week:
What were your unplugging wins this year?
How do you plan to spend more time offline in 2022?
That’s all for this week!
Bye, bye 2021.
Thank you for reading, and please share with anyone you think may benefit.
