Notes and Quotes:
“We took a sabbath once a week from work, but also screens.” “My parents were always really intentional in saying to me, ‘This is why we have made these shared commitments.’” “Real life has to be difficult. If it is not difficult, it’s not real life.” “Another question to ask ourselves is ‘What am I escaping, and why?’” “Ask yourself, Is social media making it harder for you to be content?” “Every time I survive distraction, I am reminded that it doesn’t have power over me.” “Technology is really good at shaping our habits.” Baby steps: Don’t beat yourself up, start and end your days without screens, leave your phone out of the bedroom, find something to take the place of technology.
