The last several months have been a doozy. The last several weeks. Every day, controversy. Upsetting news.
I just… I can’t even.
I’m adding this section to this web page because… YIKES!!… if ever there was a reason for a Digital Detox, it’s ALL THE REASONS!!!
Onward to the page that was, the “traditional” landing page:
Welcome to your digital detox.
If you want, call it a “social media detox”, a “social media break”, an “internet cleanse” a “hiatus” or “limited use week”, depending on how you use it. There is so much online noise and you need a break from it to focus on other things, to tune into yourself, to hear yourself, to get stuff done.
I say “social media” because there’s where people tend to spend unproductive time, but if you don’t spend much time on social media, maybe you have other online potholes such as spending hours reading celebrity gossip or gaming.
We will be taking this journey together from Monday, September 20 to Sunday, September 26, 2021.
What people said after the first round
I slept better
💤“I slept better after the first couple of nights – after the initial anxiety of NOT checking my phone before bed.” -Janice B.
I started a new project
“…helped me see where I was spending time online. I started a new project this week that I hope I see through – unless I get sucked back into the online void.” – Robert P.
Exactly what I needed
“This digtal detox was exactly what I needed, only I didn’t realize how much I needed it.” – Bethany S.
Got stuff done
“You know those things you say you’re going to do but never do them because distractions happen and you’re not motivated? For once, my clean apartment wasn’t because of procrasti-cleaning. I went for walks WITHOUT MY PHONE and the sky didn’t fall. And, I actually meditated when I woke up (twice).” -Emma M.
Who is this digital detox for?
- You don’t know what to do with your hands if there’s no device in them.
- You’ve had it with the mindless scrolling
- You feel you lack the willpower to take a break
- You think that social media controls you
- You mindlessly pick up your phone or open a tab to scroll with no purpose
- You get sucked into unproductive internet rabbit holes
- You doomscroll
- Like a child, you stall bedtime – only, it’s not “one more story”, it’s “I’ll read one more thing.”
There are so many things you can be doing instead of mindlessly surfing the internet, doomscrolling or refreshing your news feed! Imagine how productive you could be!
Would you like to
- Know yourself better?
- Feel mentally healthier?
- Have a more clear mind?
- Have time to do more?
- Be more focused?
These are just some of the benefits of a digital detox.
What’s included in this 7-day digital detox?
- Emails throughout the week with journal prompts and exercises
- Worksheets and tip sheets
- The time to get that project done and to spend quality (distanced) time with your loved ones.
We’re not going off-grid for the week, we’re being strategic about how you use your computer and mobile device.
(Though I highly recommend going off-grid occasionally and completely offline once a week.)
Only $57 – or free (sort of)
This digital detox program is appropriate for everyone in the world, not specifically to those who have ADHD or think they might.
If you sign up for this digital detox and pay the $57, you will then get a $57 discount on an ADHD coaching program. It’s basically a refund.
Q. Is this a group program with group activity?
A. It’s not currently interactive in a group setting, though several people will experience it along with you. In the future, I might add online groups and interaction. In the meantime, all your interaction will be with me! I’ll coach you through it.
Q. I need social media for work. Can I still use it?
A. Yes. We will be strategic in our use this week. This 7-day program is only a complete ban if you want it to be.
Depending on how, when, why and how often you’re online in a typical week, it could be a drastic reduction in your time online. Imagine how productive you’ll be!
Q. Do I need to go offline completely?
A. See the previous answer. This isn’t an all-or-nothing situation unless you want it to be.
Q. I’m scared. Can I handle this?
A. Absolutely! There’s a difference between a planned break and a “Holy sh*t, the power just went out while I was in the middle of something and when will I get the internet back??” scenario. You’ll be prepared, mentally and with resources. As always, I’ve got you.
