Sagina’s Digital Detox What you will need. Tools: Pen and notebook. Time: 15 minutes before you go to sleep.

Instructions: The daily digital detox and bullet journal should be done just before bed. Switch off from all technology. Literally switch off your mobile, TV, laptop and all other devices. Go old school/monologue and get a journal or notebook and pen to write.

Step 1: Write down a few reflective bullet points from the day, some wins, some challenges, some hopes, some laughs, and end with some gratitude – at least three thanks for the day. They can be small or trivial – there is no pressure, just write what comes to mind. Trust what arises as you reflect.

Tip: Start to add it to your bedtime routine. If you can wash your face and brush your teeth each night, you can take 15 minutes to write a bullet journal.

The result: Being able to shed all the day’s workload. Writing things down is a form of release and reduces our mental strains leading to better wellbeing and mental health and well as that wonderful feeling when you celebrate yourself.

What better way to end your day?
