Turning off Social Media
In the past couple of months, I've developed a new pattern. I turn my phone, computer and TV off at least an hour before I plan to go to bed. I have a bedtime routine involving a bath or shower, journaling, meditation, maybe some restorative yoga poses. And these are all done with the phone switched off.I don't switch the phone back on until I am up, have showered and completed my morning yoga practice.I feel better for it - but I notice myself getting twitchy about wanting to see what's been happening on social media; if I have any new messages from friends or family; any new emails. Just watching myself walk over to my phone, the fingers hovering over the 'turn off airplane mode' button..... I have to physically stop myself!
