Quick thought- let me just say this – running out of data can actually make your life less stressful.
Yesterday afternoon, I ran out of data and I immediately became:
- Annoyed at myself for using that much data
- Panicked because I love my social media
- More annoyed because I could not use regular imessage or Spotify
Despite my initial response (plus me texting my stepdad asking for another half a gig so that I could survive), I have noticed how peaceful today has been.
No data means I haven’t been checking my phone every 2 minutes to refresh my Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, or Twitter feed to see what everyone else was up to.
I have been more focused on work at the newspaper, along with contributing to my blog in my down time.
Not having data can actually be nice, it’s as if I have had a mini reality check.
Maybe you should run out of data too.
