- I left my phone off during the day, but I called home once at night
- The only reason I went on the computer and internet were to check my emails for school/ study abroad reasons
- no t.v.
- no music (this was the HARDEST part for me)
- only use technology for educational purposes
What I learned-
Without having anything to do on the computer or internet, I had a ton more free time to get my homework done early and read my book The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. I even took some naps during my free time! I also learned that you can live without a cell phone/ internet websites! I did it and it's not hard, I hate being in constant contact with everyone I know and it's nice to just "disappear" from the tech world every once in a while.
After the experience-
It's hard not to go back to using technology. We as Americans (and basically all first world citizens) rely heavily on technology, so naturally I used my phone today and went online. However, I check my phone less, I have not spent much time online, and I haven't watched much t.v. This short time spent away from technology has changed me slightly for the better I think!
So, next time you feel bogged down with technology, try to fast from it for a couple days and you will see a change within yourself!
