Your 2018 Digital Detox

Helllloooo & happy 2018! It’s a few days into the new year so hopefully you’re still feeling energized & excited about your resolutions (maybe we can all make it February this time??) I’m personally not a big new year’s resolutions fan (if you are, more power to you!) but I do love a “clean sweep” at the beginning of every new year. Last year, I started 2017 by completely  cleaning out my room/closet which was awesome/refreshing (10/10 recommend). This year, I’m focused more on the digital part of my life. It started off a few weeks ago actually when I realized I deleted the same 10 junk emails out of my inbox every day. Every. single. day. I deleted the same emails without opening them. It got me thinking–why don’t I just unsubscribe so I don’t have to do this every morning? Yea, it took a little bit of time to click through all the annoying unsubscribe links, but I’m way happier now looking at my inbox.

So with that in mind, here are 5 easy ways to do a 2018 digital detox. Let’s face it, a large majority of our lives is digital so might as well make it a little more positive. Oh, and after you read this post, take a break & do something that doesn’t involve looking at a screen ;)

New Year, Same (More Confident) You

Is it safe to say that last year kinda sucked for everyone?

Let’s be real: 2016 was a weird year. Don’t get me wrong–I had some really good times & made some really good memories. But on the other hand, there were some pretty big lows, and I feel like 2016 left everyone feeling a little bit… blah.

Good news is that we’re already 17 days into 2017 & we’re all set up for a really awesome comeback. According to the Chinese calendar, 2017 is the year of the rooster (who knew!), which is categorized by being hardworking, confident, courageous and observant–aka an opportunity to absolutely kill it.

I’ll spare you the “New Year New Me” cliche because honestly, we’re all still the same us, but maybe could use a little upgrade.  I don’t have a list of New Year’s resolutions per se, but here are a few things I’m trying to focus on to hopefully make 2017-me a little more confident & ambitious than 2016-me. Maybe my list will inspire you too. Let’s get after it, y’all.
