And if that caught your attention, in addition to all the reasons why you should join us and the things we can offer, take a look below at some great benefits of setting it down that can make a big difference in your life.
It Helps You Set Goals
Set it down and set goals for yourself. It can be on a personal or professional level. It doesn’t matter. Taking the attention off of your phone, for even a few seconds a day, helps your brain focus on other things it didn’t have the time to do before because it was too busy catching up with your Instagram’s news feed.
Goals provide direction and focus for long-term goals you want to accomplish. But as usual, if you don’t feel like putting your phone down and start thinking about the future, allow yourself to set it down by replacing the time you spend on the phone with a new hobby that doesn’t require screens.
You will notice the difference after a few months. Ideas will flow more easily in your head and you will be able to set goals and accomplish those things you had put on pause because of your phone.
It Helps You Stay Productive
Let’s be honest. After a long day at work, the last thing you want to do when you get home is to keep working. You are probably thinking about taking a glass of wine while scrolling on your phone or catching up with a good show. Those are also great unwinding activities, but it’s not what we want to try here.
In Set it Down, we want you to commit and do your best, so you can be the best version of yourself you can be. We want you to take care of yourself and we will motivate you as much as we can with everything we offer. But replacing one screen with another, it’s not going to help you set it down.
Putting your phone down will help you even in small amounts. You don’t have to start big. You can start with baby steps. But as the days go by, and you reduce the time you spend on your phone, you will get more time for yourself and stay productive in those little things you always postponed.
It Helps You Stay Motivated And Healthy
And again, we are talking about attention to detail. When we set it down, we are looking to relax and give our eyes and mind a break. According to data, Americans check their phones 96 times a day, which is once every 10 minutes.
With that type of addiction, it’s hard to stay motivated at work, school, or any other activity you want to do because your brain is on constant alert. It doesn’t matter if you don’t look at it. While you are doing other stuff with your phone close to you, you are thinking, “Do I have a message?”, “What time is it?”, “My phone has been quiet for a while, I should check on it.”
See what I’m talking about?
Setting it down helps you lower those anxiety levels. Even if you don’t notice you are doing it, by letting go of your phone for a few minutes every day, you will stay motivated in your daily activities and it will help your mental health since your brain will finally be able to focus completely in one thing at the time.
It can even improve your memory. So, set it down and stay motivated!
