I Gave Up The Internet For A Week

  • After feeling too attached to the internet, social media, and my devices for so long, I decided to go cold turkey -- 100% internet free for an entire week.

    *the problem is i _can't_.* i'm in high school and am required to have my laptop with me to school, do homework on it, submit assignments, and i have to check my email every day or they'll say it's my own fault for not knowing something. on top of that my schedule changes almost daily, so before each class i have to check in what room the class is. when i get home i'm so tired and my brain has given up on reading from all the scientific papers so i go on youtube to lazily watch something. i really don't know how i can change this, but i feel so polluted.
    sorry for the rant, if anyone reads this, maybe you have tips?

    This was a very good, realistic video. I use Google maps a lot. I've also in the past weanes myself odd the internet while still keeping my regular schedule. I deleted all social media from my phone. And for the first few days I did grab my phone without thinking and then realized I had nothing to open. Once I got past that part I was able to focus more on my home and my family and I actually had time to bible study and read books.

    Great video touching on very important points.
    The internet makes us feel like others can solve our problems for us or we can find simple solutions quickly. In reality this is simply not true at all. Reality is that only we can solve our problems and do it best with the help of others and the internet. But the focus has to be on ourselves in the problem solving process. This takes a lot of reflection. The biggest problem we have today is people don't reflect on their daily events. Their are constantly inundated with a barrage of largely pointless information and spend no time thinking about their previous time on a certain site and if it was worthwhile. So no corrective action is taken when bad choices are made. We are surrounded by the most skillful marketers using better tools than have ever been available in history to sell us stuff we don't need. Unless you pause and think you don't realize these things. So unplug and think. Then you'll be more productive when online. Step away often to be your best!

    There are studies saying kids that grow up with screens (TV, computer, phone, tablet...) their intelligence gets reduced. My parents didn't allow any of it. I got my first computer at 14, first phone 16 and I could watch TV at 18. I felt a bit left out especially texting in the teen period. But as a kid I would go to my neighbors and watch my favorite show. My parents would teach me how to use a computer, I would use paint, play games on it when allowed. And we would rent movies for Friday and Saturday night. So it wasn't really bad. I probably read more than other kids, and had more extracurriculars like dance and music...

    I was once lost on the road for 14 hours because I took a wrong turn and gas stations didn't sell maps anymore. I eventually got where I was going using cardinal directions and a group of nice elderly men at a small town gas station. I now always have an atlas in my car.
