So a lot of times on YouTube I will watch videos where people discuss their nighttime routines or self-care routines and a lot of times they mention technology downtime.
Technology downtime is pretty much having some time before bed where you don’t engage with technology such as your phone, game system, tv, etc. Usually people use this time to read a book or journal so that going to bed is a relatively easy process or just so that they can think about things.
I honestly have yet to practice this. I am literally addicted to my phone. I mean I’m typing this up on my phone while sitting at my desk for work. I’m on it constantly so when I think of not engaging with it I start to sometimes get anxiety I guess. I started to realize that I use my phone for everything such as playing games and sometimes for even self-care but I know that it’s not healthy and social media plays havoc on my mental health.
So my question is if you currently practice downtime with technology what helps you? What do you do during that time and how long do you do it a day? 1 hour? 30 mins? Several times a day? Comment down below and let me know since I’m pretty interested in trying to do this.
So for today’s post I decided not to do a video due to really struggling with my mental health. This last week was a huge struggle when it came to my anxiety and my depression.
I just felt so overwhelmed with everything that was going on in my life and so many changes. Plus one of the major things I struggle with is feeling like I don’t fit in or like people are talking about me. I’ve always dealt with people not liking me especially as a kid and it’s something that has always hurt me. I always try to tell myself that I should continue to be myself but I still struggle with accepting myself.
For a while I actually thought of taking a mental health day at work but I ultimately decided not to. I just felt guilty thinking of calling in to work and I really wanted to be around family but many of them were going to be working as well. But I also felt a lot better after going through the weekend.
To help with my mental health this weekend I talked to my dad a lot and just really let him know what I was feeling. I also took the time to do a journal prompt and ultimately just did a lot of writing. Overall my mental health is something I’m still working on and something that I’m still struggling with. Sometimes I don’t know what else to do. But I know that it will get better.
But what do you you guys do for your mental health? Also what advice do you have for me and what I could try to work on self love and also my confidence since I struggle with that. I would love to read your comments and I hope that you all have a great week.
So I recently decided to take a journey into increase my self-confidence and self-esteem. To start I decided to take a look at my usage when it came to social media specifically Instagram. So in the video I discuss that journey and how its been. So check it out!
