GetLiving is a monthly campaign to "Live More" and bring awareness to digital distraction.
Work starts to pick up. School gets busier, major due dates draw near, and spring break is right around the corner. With the sudden increase in stress levels, it’s often necessary to take a breather. Take some time this month to check in with your mental health and wellbeing. Take a break from your phone and social media and do something you love (play an instrument, hang out with some friends, meditate, or take a nap).
A great way to start is by participating in the National Day of Unplugging on March 5th.
National Day of Unplugging is an awareness campaign that promotes a 24-hour respite from technology annually observed the first weekend in March. For more than a decade, schools, religious institutions and businesses have used our resources to inspire healthy life/tech balance for their communities. Participation is open to anyone who wishes to elevate human connection over digital engagement. Learn all about it at www.nationaldayofunplugging.com
Take at least 20 minutes a day throughout the month to practice mindfulness amidst the mayhem. In addition, be sure to monitor your daily phone usage and time on social media, trying to keep it under two hours a day. Join the TextLess Live More Challenge on National Day of Unplugging, March 5-6. Using the lilspace app, you can unplug and join in activities to help you unwind and Live More with the TLLM community.
