What do you do instead?
You live. You find it in each moment.
When was the last time you did something for the first time?
Below are five things I thought were worth sharing this week:
What do you do instead? You commit to do anything else but waste another moment- let alone hours- of your life tapping away at a screen. You commit to never again fight sleep just for another hit of dopamine via a funny tweet, and it's 3:23AM. You commit to never ignore someone in a conversation, reading through a Reddit conversation. Not because there will be something magical waiting on the other side for you, but because you've realized tapping away at a screen endlessly while ignoring people around you isn't how you want to get through your days, and by extension your life.
R.C. Waldun Lived Without Internet For Two Weeks, and Here's What Happened. When was the last time you spent more than a day, let alone two weeks, without the Internet? It’s been over a decade for me. 😳
A quote I want to share with you this week:
“In a world that entices us to browse through the lives of others to help us better determine how we feel about ourselves, and to in turn feel the need to be constantly visible — for visibility these days seems to somehow equate to success — don’t be afraid to disappear from it, from us, for a while and see what comes to you in the silence.”
Found in Austin Kleon’s newsletter.

That’s all for this week!
