There’s no sugarcoating it. Phones are our lives. We basically do everything with it and for some people, when they don’t touch their phones for 10 minutes, they start to feel off.
Considering all the bad news we’ve heard and seen this year, there’s the need to sometimes take a break from social media and just distract yourself from what’s going on around the world. It’s been tough especially because of the last few days with the #EndSars protests. It’s understandable if you need a break from all the depressing news. If you need ideas on what you can do in these spare moments, here are a couple of them.
1. Go for long walks
I recommend evening walks; around 5-6pm because nobody wants to go for a walk in the sun. Constant walks will help you reconnect to your environment. We tend to look at our screens so much that we forget that there’s a whole real world out there that we haven’t interacted with in a long while. During these walks, you can think about anything so far as they’re happy thoughts and will keep you active.
I know for a fact that most of us stopped reading in the University. For even others, they stopped in SHS, in the University the only things they were reading were lecture notes. Reconnect with those books you used to love when you were a kid. It will help take your minds off things.
3. Do some chores
Once you’re home, there’s a good chance that you have some chores which you’ve been putting off. Use this time to clean your place up. You’ll feel good once you see how neat your place is.
4. Watch TV
When was the last time you actually watched anything on the television? Now that there’s Netflix and all the social media apps, you barely have any time for it. Just flip through the channels. You may find something really interesting to watch.
Sleep is very important as it is involved in healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels. Also, it serves as a short escape from all the things happening in the real world.
