6.7 Screentime.

Screentime is the amount of time you spend on devices like smartphones, computers, and TVs. It’s important to think about what kind of content you’re looking at because it can really shape your thoughts and feelings. Ask yourself, “Does this content help me with my new story and goals?”

Also, be careful about using screens at night. The blue light from screens can mess up your sleep by tricking your brain into thinking it’s still daytime. This can make it hard to fall asleep and stay asleep. Try to cut down on screentime before bed, maybe an hour or so before you plan to sleep. Instead, you could read a book, listen to music, or do some relaxing activities. Choosing positive, inspiring content during the day can help keep you motivated and focused on your goals. Remember, what you watch and interact with can either lift you up or bring you down, so choose wisely!

“The human spirit must prevail over technology.”

– Albert Einstein

Exercise: Practise Gratitude

Instead of using your smartphone before going to sleep, try this exercise: Sit comfortably with your eyes closed. Take three deep breaths in, and make each exhale a bit longer than the inhale. Focus on your heart. Now, think of three things you’re grateful for today, no matter how big or small. Feel the gratitude in your heart.
