Add 14+ hours to your week

If I said that dropping ONE habit could add as much as 14 hours (OR MORE) back to your week ... AND that it could help boost your energy, lower stress levels, and even reduce aches and pains?


Would you want to hear about it?

Many of us get lost in a phone scroll!

What if I told you the habit I’m talking about is scrolling on your phone?


And if you're like most people, you might be spending more time on digital devices than you even realize.


Almost 57% of Americans consider themselves "mobile phone addicts" and 75% of adults say they feel uncomfortable without their phones.


Unfortunately, all that screen time is making us less focused and less likely to get quality sleep, adding to stress levels, and taking precious time away from the people we care about and hindering our working towards our goals.


Fortunately, a digital detox can do your body and your brain a LOT of good!


According to the Cleveland Clinic, when you work to reduce screen time, you should see these benefits:


Less stress. Unplugging from the constant news cycle and notifications can cut tension and worry.


Better focus. You can engage better and more deeply without your phone constantly distracting you.


Improved relationships. Ditching your phone helps you be more present with others around you.


Better sleep. At bedtime, your brain starts to release melatonin, which helps with relaxation. But looking at your phone at night can delay when your brain releases melatonin, making it harder to fall asleep.


More time. This one is a biggie! You’ll literally get back the time you spend scrolling and have a lot more of it to focus on the things that matter most.


Healthier neck and back. Being hunched over your phone can cause aches and pains — not to mention that it can lead to eye strain.


The exact ways you structure your “digital detox” is your choice. A lot of it will depend on how you use your phone!


But here are some ideas:

●     Only check your email at set times during the day

●     Take a break from video games

●     Turn off news and app notifications (one of my favorites!)

●     Spend less time on social media

●     Cut back on texting

●     Take breaks from watching news or streaming video

●     Set your phone down and don’t look at it for an hour or two, once in a while


Just imagine what you could do with an extra hour (or more!) every day!


P.S. One great way to use that free time is to start getting more serious about other wellness habits! Join my email newsletter list so you can keep up with all the fitness fun and be among the first to know about programs, challenges, group and individual training sessions, and more.
