I am totally loving this social media detox challenge. Look, I understand that some of you might wonder what the big deal is, and simply say, hey stop checking your phone.
But when you’re in a habit, it can be hard to break. Most of us are checking our phones and social media far to often, so if you’re looking to cut back without going crazy and just tossing it in the trash, this is for you.
I really think doing these small steps will make you realize how nice it is to break away from the internet and readjust your mindset a bit. After this is all done maybe you’ll be less likely to mindlessly scroll through your phone all day.

I think this would be a great thing for the whole family to do!
