Take the test:
Do you take your mobile everywhere with you?
Do you watch TV while scrolling your phone?
Do you take your phone to the dinner table?
If you said 'yes' to all the questions above it might be a sign that you need to disconnect once in a while. As we have previously said, beauty comes from within and whatever you do to improve your wellness, will shine out on your exterior beauty. A more relaxed lifestyle can improve your skin, hair and especially external relationships when you give extra attention to friends and family.
Step 1 - Free the notification badge:
Do you really need to know the latest updates at all times? The red notification badge has been created to catch your attention and give you a sense that you need to be checking an app at all times. Believe it or not, getting rid of these badges won't affect your life, you will still remember the important stuff like emails and automatically slow down the less essential apps.
Go to settings on iPhone > Notifications > Select an app > Simply swipe the "Badge App Icon" toggle to the left.
Step 2 - Live the present:
Watching a movie with a friend? Chatting at the dinner table? Going for a long walk? Leave your phone behind, even if you have to force yourself to do so. "I would take my phone at walks and at the first opportunity I would check social media just because I wasn't present." - says @keiladoyle. "You miss sunsets, the fresh air, the simple things in life just because you are busy scrolling down." Train yourself to leave your phone behind when you go for short walks and also try to leave your phone in a different area of the house while watching a movie or doing something with somebody else. Soon you won't even miss the device anymore!
Step 3 - What really matters:
Will photo likes really matter for you in 20 years time? Why spend so many precious hours of your life on social media when you can try and do something more fulfilling? Learn a new skill, meditate, sleep more, call a friend, the list goes on and on. We are true believers of energy and the constant comparison, flaunting and shopping culture that social media often
portrays can be excessive. Learn to identify when you are doing too much scrolling and police yourself into a healthier relationship with your phone.
"I feel like life got much more interesting since I started disconnecting quite often. It didn't need to be a drastic change but I just became more aware of what I was missing while I was spending time staying online at all times" - @keiladoyle
