The truth is, though, living a more tech-free life doesn’t mean tossing your phone into a river or burying it in your backyard. In fact, there are little changes (think baby steps) you can make throughout the day that add up to a less plugged-in life.
Don’t know where to start? We’ve rounded up four easy ways to take yourself from plugged-in to unplugged—and they’re so simple, you’ll wonder why you haven’t tried them sooner. Read on for 4 easy ways to take a break from your cell.
Create A Nighttime Ritual
Right before bed is often when we’re on our phones the most. One of the easiest ways to nix your nighttime technology habit is to create a relaxing nighttime ritual that doesn’t involve scrolling through your smartphone. Start the phone-free process with a few drops of a CBD oil tincture under your tongue, like CBD For Life’s Hemp Tincture, which can trigger a soothing and relaxing sensation that will carry you through bedtime.
Next, nestle in with a book or magazine—as long as it’s not on your phone, it’s fair game. If reading isn’t your thing, play a little music (if it’s through your phone, be sure to put it down immediately after you select your playlist) or indulge in a soothing skincare routine. Do all of this at least one hour before lights out so you feel unplugged, unwound, and ready to drift off to sleep.
