What if, for one whole week, you did a media fast?
You know… like, don’t consume any media at all. No screens, no devices, don’t even pick up a newspaper.
No. Media. Period.
Is one week too long? Then scratch that… make it three days. THREE DAYS. That’s just a long weekend. You can do it, I promise.
Give it a shot. And when you do, pay close attention to your emotional state. How does it make you feel? Happy? Sad? Energized? Exhausted? All of the above? None? Something else? I don’t know how it will make you feel… though I have my suspicions.
When I’ve done media fasts, I find myself feeling calm. Really calm. And to me, that feels good. Really good.
Which makes me wonder… if taking a media fast makes me feel so good, why do I ever go back to it at all?
