Starting Wednesday April 29th, 2015, I will try to take one day a week and detox from everything: any type of social media, internet, iPod, 3DS, and even cell phone. In other words, a total #DigitalDetox.
I’ve noticed that my habits of late have been obtruding in my creative avenues and I’ve been feeling sluggish because of it.
Not only that, but the #DLMChallenge has proved to drain my creative time because I am so far behind in the challenge.
First, there are three minor exceptions:
1. I can use my computer but ONLY to write screenplays, and no internet. I will disable my connection for the time being. That means no blog entries these days.
2. My voice recorder can be used without issue to record my thoughts/ ideas.
3. I will check my phone for emergency purposes. Any texts or calls I receive that day will be documented and I will return them the following day.
What I will do with this time is very simple.
Read. Clean. Go for walks. But most importantly–
I challenge you all to do the same. Scrolling down on Facebook can be exhausting and only separate yourself from others.
Go and be social. In the right way.
