Social media can be a great way to share and communicate with others but it can also take you away from the present moment and leave you feeling disconnected and unhappy.

By the end of your detox you will not only feel refreshed but more grateful and loving.

This challenge may open up your eyes to just how much time you actually spend on your phone each day checking social media.

It's only for a week but it may change the way you live your life.

Day 1

Have A Social Media Free Morning


Today you will start your day without a phone in bed with you. Start the first 15 to 20 minutes of your day watching the sunrise, talking in person with your loved ones, cooking breakfast, taking a walk outside or doing some exercise instead of scrolling through Facebook or Instagram. You won't miss much by not checking your accounts right away, trust me.

Day 2

Have A Social Media Free Morning

AND

A Social Media Free Meal


Today, try not to check your phone during breakfast, lunch or dinner or at least one of the three meals. Enjoy the flavors of your food. Take the time to appreciate the meal that is in front of you.

Day 3

Have A Social Media Free Morning

A Social Media Free Meal

AND

A Social Media Free Conversation
