You don't need discipline to get offline
Make it feel real good
Five things to share:
You don’t need discipline to get offline, and you don’t have to be mean to yourself about it. There are a million things to do offline that are far more enjoyable than the same regurgitated noise online. It does take more effort, and it takes getting used to, but once you get used to it, the digital is no match for the joys of time spent offline.
I’m finally too old to like/dislike things pretentiously: Indian Matchmaking on Netflix is so enjoyable and fun to watch!!! Does enjoying trashy reality television make my claim to unplugging and spending time offline any less valid? (No!)
A quote I want to share with you:
Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn.
— Benjamin Franklin
Instead of being disciplined about hating on yourself to get things done, try being disciplined about remaining close to what brings you joy. It takes a lot of courage Getting Stuff Done by Not Being Mean to Yourself.
A question for you: What brings you joy about spending time offline?
