IT’S LIKE SUNSCREEN FOR ALL THE SCREENS IN YOUR LIFE.
We’ve all had times where we’ve:
- Watched too much
- Scrolled too much
- Typed too much
Think of that feeling as a sunburn for your brain.
To an extent, we want that sicknasty tan. But we also want to take care of our skin.
It’s not about building resilience to tech so we can spend more uninterrupted time on it. It’s about recognizing when we’d benefit from taking a step away and building the resilience to turn it off even when everything feels urgent.
We can feel overwhelmed by it. But we’d benefit from “screen-screens”. It’ll help us return to our work and connections more focused, feeling better, and happier than if we didn’t use them.
- Setting a bedtime mode on your phone.
- Taking a few minutes every hour to get up and walk outside. (use sunscreen!)
- Turn on a nightlight to filter out some of the blue light as evening comes.
- Don’t use your phone for an hour before bed (yeah right)
