So, you have finally taken the plunge to go for an internet detox?
The weekends are the best time to initiate the plan. It is not as difficult as you think. Yes, it is hard to imagine an entire day without the influence of the internet, but once you get a hold of it, you won’t go back.
In this excerpt below, we will be talking about relaxing things you can do to spend your time.
Begin Your Digital Detox
Here are some things you can do during a digital detox. A day without panicking after getting a flurry of emails.
1. Have A Movie Marathon
This is one of the best ways to enjoy your Saturday afternoon. You can bake a whole pack of popcorn, get a glass of wine and sit comfortably on the sofa. Yes, we know what you are thinking.
How can we watch a movie when we are disconnecting our internet?
Just like how we did it in the old times!
When we bought CDs and saved them for the weekends. However, we doubt there are any DVD outlets open now, but you can always download them beforehand. You can download all your favorite movie franchises from here for free!
This is a decentralized peer-to-peer domain where you can download HD movies with less internet data. Download them on weekdays, and enjoy the weekends without the internet.
2. Read An Entire Book
If you are not that big a fan of watching movies for hours on end, then how about picking up a cozy mystery and letting your mind concoct all imagination? Some would even say that it is much better than watching moving pictures on television.
But, let us not get into that debate now!
So, why not brew yourself a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate (since the weather outside is getting chilly)? Grab your favorite chunky blanket, and dive right into the world of fantastic alternate realities.
However, if you find yourself craving a book and you do not have that book right now, then you can easily download the eBook from the link given above.
3. Bake Or Cook
There is nothing more relaxing than smelling the sweet aroma of the pie and the ‘ding’ of the oven timer.
Or the sound and smell of sauteing vegetables before the tomato puree goes in!
Yes, we are talking about the therapeutic nitty gritty of cooking, and you can try them too since you do not have endless scrolling through social media or checking emails to distract you. This is your time to learn how to cook or bake.
But, technologies have made us creatures of dependency. Wondering how you are going to get the recipes without Youtube?
Download cookbooks from famous chefs from the link given below, and start cooking.
4. Spend Some Time In Nature
Time with nature always spreads this sense of peace and tranquility right into the center of our hearts. Going for a walk after heavy rain and smelling the wet soil. However, we are always complaining that we do not have enough time.
Well, no one can force you to work the weekends! So, why not take this opportunity and spend some time in nature?
No, we are not talking about sitting on a park bench and scrolling through your phone. We are talking about being present and mindful. Not do anything and just be in the heart of nature.
5. Call Friends Over For Lunch Or Dinner
Remember those delicious treats you just cooked? Why should you enjoy it all alone? How about you call your friends, family, or even a date and have lively discussions over lunch and dinner?
Tell them about this internet detox beforehand, but do not force them. Simply tell them how great it can be, just for one day when they are not controlled by the digital world.
Like The Old Times!
We are always complaining that things are not simple like the old times. However, with the world progressing, we cannot expect technology to just vanish one day.
But, just for that, one day, we can enjoy all the good delights of the simple old times without feeling guilty.
Enjoy your weekend!
