Stepping away from digital media for some time can be incredibly helpful, and even though I realize that, I don’t do it quite often enough. I wrote about taking a #DigitalDetox a while ago, but it wasn’t something that became a regular part of my schedule. Still, stepping away helps with creativity, mindfulness, and introspection. It also helps in making time for off-screen activities, like reading actual books or observing my surroundings. The fact that I found myself “doomscrolling” instead of doing some yearly planning in the early days of 2021 and Taylor Reneau’s recent video “Why You Should Quit Social Media” have given me additional motivation to do this again. So, here’s my plan:
Following this schedule is my monthly goal for January. I’ll let you know how it worked.
Also, I’ll keep the Disable Twitter Feed add-on that I created for Firefox enabled on my computer. By the way, the same add-on is now available as a Chrome extension.
