Having a tech-free evening

Although I love and adore my phone- and work on my laptop for the majority of the day, Luke and I agreed that we’d been feeling a bit swamped with technology and I was feeling suffocated by a constant stream of information and general mind-blaaaah that comes with working in social media.

So, we decided to hide our phones, put the laptops away and keep the TV off for the entire evening. Here’s how it went down:

We actually talked for ages about our days- Although we always have a snuggle and a catch-up when we get home, it’s normally accompanied by the Big Bang Theory and mindlessly scrolling every now and then.

Without any distractions we had a proper chat and little heart to heart about everything that had been going on at work, which was so lovely.

The kitchen got cleaned- If there is anything I hate more in life, it’s cleaning up dirty plates and tidying the kitchen. We tend to leave it until we run out of cutlery and then do a purge… but since we had time on our side and not much else to sort out, we cleaned properly! (And by we, I mean Luke. Luke cleaned the kitchen and I played with the cats oops)

I didn’t know what to do with myself when peeing- Um, is this tmi? But like, wtf do you do on the toilet if not scroll your phone or reply to messages. Lol soz friends who read this.

We played a game- If we don’t go to the gym, cinema or see our families- our typical evening involves watching a movie or TV show. However, with no TV time- we ended up playing charades! I know it sounds super lame, but it was actually hilarious- I was almost weeing myself laughing at how much of a dork my fiance is.

I had a proper pamper- Since I had switched off, I also decided to glow uuuup. I did a charcoal face-mask, I had a shower, I sorted my brows… I AM LE NEW WOMAN.

Went to bed early- I read loads of my book (The stories of Eva Luna if you care) and then because I hadn’t been keeping my brain awake with loads of blue light, I was KNACKERED. I ended up falling asleep by 10. Parday hard eh?

I think we’re going to try and do this a little more in the future- because I actually felt so good afterwards- and I’m feeling super refreshed today!
