10 Tips for your 1st DAY OFFLINE

When was the last time you were OFFLINE for a whole day?

Not checking e-mails, Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter or spending hours in the toilet swippin “No” on Tinder and not getting any matches?

We recommend you to do it on a weekend, as it´s easier for work reasons and you have plenty of stuff to do and enjoy in a different way.

Here are our 10 TIPS for your first OFFLINE Day.

1. Don´t set an alarm to wake up.

Waking up naturally is half-way for you to feel better about yourself.

Have you never woke up to your alarm and 10 “snoozes” later you end up checking your Instagram account?

Open your blinds and let the sunshine in the morning wake you up!

2. Go for a walk or a run and buy a newspaper on your way back home.

How many of us check the news on the phone whilst having breakfast or coffee in the morning? Try the old school paper and read the news like back in the old days.

3. Prepare yourself a different breakfast

The less time you spend on your smartphone, the more time you have to enjoy simply pleasures. Prepare a tasty breakfast, put some effort into it and taste it like it´s the first time you´re eating. Pay attention to the action of eating and feel all the flavours.

4. Turn your music louder and dance like nobody´s watching!

Are you one of those people that are too shy to dance in public? Well, sing and dance like nobody´s watching! Dancing is a form of meditation for many people (and one of our favourites) and helps you release endorphins that help on stress release! You´ll feel lighter and brighter to start up your day!

5. Go out for lunch and ask your friends to put their phones down.

How annoying is it to be around a table where everyone is checking their facebook messages? Yes, we know it! Challenge your friends. See what their reaction is.

6. Take a nap!

How good is it to take a nap after lunch? Most times we oversleep, so try to do it for 20-30 min maximum. It will revitalize your day!

7. Express yourself!

Play an instrument, sing or simply write on your old notebook if you feel like expressing your feelings and thoughts. Forget about updating your Facebook status…sometimes your thoughts are not to be shared. Keep it to yourself or send a postcard to a friend who’s on the other side of the world …maybe?

8. Invite your friends over for dinner and play some old school games together.

Trivial Pursuit? Monopoly? Ah…Forget about Charades App, you can do it with a post-it on your forehead!

9. Take a bath before bed.

Put some candles and incense in your bathroom. Turn on some chill out music and take some time to relax your muscles before you go to bed.

10. Fall asleep reading a book, listening to music…or making love!

Forget about checking Facebook or Instagram. Did you know the screen light keeps you awake and disturbs your sleep? Check if you feel better the next daywe guarantee you will.
