inspired by:
emma chamberlain’s 24 hours without a phone https://ai-tube.com/videoai/AGAFPzj4N4p)
casey neistat’s goodbye, social media https://ai-tube.com/videoai/6QsC10BrQC0)

books about phone addiction:
irresistible by adam alter (https://amzn.to/2UOtipF)
digital minimalism by cal newport (https://amzn.to/2P5GOzX)

This week, I spent 7 full days without a phone. No mindlessly clicking through stories, no getting stuck for hours on the explore page, no reloading my likes and views and comments every 10 minutes. I had a growing suspicion I had a phone and social media addiction and it was time to quit cold turkey to find out just what life is like without a smartphone.

if i get my phone taken away by like my mom or something, i get this feeling of boredom and i feel like i need to do something, even though i have so many other things to do. this summer so far ive been on punishment and ive only been allowed two hours on my phone and two hours on my laptop each day, (that changed until today as it was moved up to 3 hours yay) but ive been able to find other things to do. ive started working on a kind of short story, and im now rewriting it to fix somethings and add more details, ive been drawing a lot (though i already do that most of the time as an artist, but that's not the point here), and i finished rewatching an anime that i watched a few years ago that i really enjoyed, and im proud of myself for that. it just feels nice sometimes to have time away from electronics and the thing that can tear us down called social media. i even have a radio in my room now that i can listen to when i need some background noise when writing or drawing. i used to spend most of my free time on my phone bc i thought that most of the things that enjoyed were going to be through a screen that damages my eyes, but i have found joy in the other things that i do when im not on my electronics.
so sorry this comment is so long, but if you made it this far, the anime that i rewatched is called Ouran High School Host Club, and if you havent seen it, it's really good and you can find it on netflix :)

I am just seeing this video and I only recently found your channel but how real you are and open about expressing how you are really feeling is really admirable. I feel like not many other influencers would have been so real about feeling disconnected from everything I feel like the typical line would be "I feel so connected to myself" "This experience has made me feel like a better person" blah blah blah. When you said "I am tired of myself" I related to that a lot, because I use my phone as a source of anxiety relief. It could be sad to say yes I have a phone addiction, but I feel like being aware of it and talking about it is admirable in an online figure. I'm subscribed and excited to see more of your content because I feel like you are real and just trying to put out enjoyable content that connects with your viewers.

I spend 1hour and 30mins in my phone which means

30mins in the morning like 10:00
30mins in the afternoon like 1:00
And
30 mins at night time maybe like 9:00

Which means 1 hour and 30 mins but not continuously

If i have school i only have 1hour so yeahhhhh this is so sad... But im getting used to it cause i have glasses and my eyes are like 400+/20

i can live like a week and a half without my phone because asian mums r always taking them away for an irrelavant reason so ive kinda just gotten used to it, but when i do have it i do notice that when im bored or want to not do something, i do refresh insta, snap and twitter to see if there is anything i can do.
