Digital detox

My digital detox of putting the phone down to charge at 6pm hasn’t worked twice this week because I didn’t get my blog post done in time. On these days, you truly do understand the advantages of such restraint.

There really is nothing to gain from having access to your phone at all hours, I realise that now that I have my phone in my hand and I’m attempting to watch a TV show properly, but I still feel compelled to use my phone.

I was thinking that my digital detox could have a weekend, but am now reconsidering my views. It’s probably easier to just go cold turkey from 6pm every day. Similarly, a break from SNS may also be a good idea. That’s the thing that’s really keeping me on I think.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.


Sign up to the weekly Mountains of Wisdom newsletter, follow me on social (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Clubhouse, all @kiwiyamabushi), or send me an email via the link below to stay in touch.


Tim.
