Get Up. Get Outside. Get Living.

Easy Tips to Celebrate Living More - in only 4 hours!

You’ve probably read the latest numbers: the average person spends four hours each day on their phone. For July’s GetLiving initiative, we’re flipping the script. Push yourself to spend 1/4 of your waking hours away from your device. For the average American that’s–you guessed it–four hours.

Luckily, days last longer in July so celebrate summer sunshine with device-free fun time. Get Up. Get Outside and Get Living!

The average person spends 4 hours a day on their phone. This July, we encourage you to spend 1/4 of your waking hours AWAY from your device.

Celebrate 1/4 July with TextLess Live More!

We encourage you to practice 1/4 of July in the way that best suits your lifestyle. Maybe that means setting your phone down for four hours in the evening to go for a walk with friends, or tucking it in a drawer for four hours at work to collaborate, catch-up or grab a coffee with that co-worker you keep running into. Maybe it means foregoing the tempting “Insta thumb scroll” first thing in the morning before you roll out of bed so you can make that 7:00 am yoga class. Imagine having FOUR HOURS A DAY to try something new. Try a few different ways and see what seems most sustainable for you.

Breaking our digital dependence does not have a one-size-fits-all solution.

Use your four hours to Live More–whatever that looks like! Perhaps coordinate an activity with family and friends who are also committed to GetLiving this month, or perhaps dedicate some quiet time for yourself to reflect and nurture positive habits that don’t involve technology.

Let us know how you’re doing, and Happy 1/4 July!

Get Up! Get Going! Get Living July 2019!
