21 Things to do away from a screen

Right now it’s easier than ever to spend your days switching between YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Netflix (or some other streaming service) and Instagram. These things are great for entertainment and to catch up on things you’re interested in.

But it’s also important to dedicate time in your day to be away from a screen. I think it’s important to have interests that don’t require your phone, laptop, or TV. Not because technology is bad but because there is a whole other world outside of the screen.

Particularly with social media and YouTube, you can end up spending so much time watching the lives of others that you’re not even living your own life.

So here are a few things to do away from a screen:

  • Bake
  • Cook a meal
  • Host a dinner party
  • Go to a wine tasting
  • Read a book
  • Go for a walk
  • Tidy your home
  • Go out for dinner
  • Draw
  • Paint
  • Do a puzzle
  • Do hand embroidery
  • Paint your nails
  • Meditate
  • Write
  • Read a magazine
  • Play a board game
  • Plant flowers
  • Organise your closet
  • Take a nap
  • Visit a museum

Of course some of these things aren’t possible right now but they will be soon.
