  1. I love this, Hillary!

  2. I give myself permission to release the need to be plugged in and enjoy being present in what is happening in my life. Why is it so easy to be with myself and the world around me? I’m open to having more clarity with myself. And so it is…

      YES Heather!!! Enjoy and can’t wait to hear how it goes. Pls report back…

      • Pleased to report that this weekend, free of email and social media connection, was both productive and rejuvenating! I used some time to just BE…to relax and detach instead the usual forcing myself into doingdoingdoing …while I also focused on finishing some coursework and completed IIN Immersion and Reiki Master Certification. Most importantly, I gained a new perspective on balancing life and technology, and think I am going to implement a social media detox at least one weekend a month. Thanks, Hillary! xo

    This comes at a perfect time for me where I need to get really clear on some decisions I have to make! So I’m in!

      • This weekend free from all things digital was amazing! I was actually at our friend’s cottage up in Northern Ontario and checking my phone didn’t even really cross my mind much except for fleeting moments when I saw my friends were updating their Facebook, Instagram, etc. I felt like I had really great conversations with my friends and husband, enjoyed the outdoors and really appreciated not only the people, but the nature that surrounded me. This was the last 48 hours of the Detox.

        During the first 24 hours of the detox, around about the 20 hour mark, I cheated a little and checked for any last minute “urgent” items before I left the city for the weekend. I wish I hadn’t as there was obviously nothing that couldn’t wait! The plus side is that I was completely mindful of the fact that I was doing this, and checking social media/email that time was not something I did in an unconscious state.

        This detox has reminded me that I can just BE, without constant stimulation and the false sense of “busy-ness” from checking my phone multiple times an hour. It has reminded me that my “fear of missing out” on things going on in the virtual world is silly and something that I really need to get in check. And above all else, the detox has reminded me that most things digital can wait, but connecting with people and building valuable relationships cannot.

        People before Posts is how I see it.

        Thanks for starting this great initiative, Hillary!

    I give myself permission to create this sacred space for myself and to be present in the space and just be me. I give myself permission to experience this freedom and celebrate independence….and so it is

        My takeaways are an overall feeling of wholeness and awareness. I’m not feeling scattered and able to take tasks in little bites and get things done. With this feeling of calmness and non distraction, I can hear my voice and heart speaking. It doesn’t get “lost” in all the jumble and fast pace of social media. It’s grounded, dynamic, pure potential, and sparkly ;) I like using social media as a tool but with some boundaries and within those boundaries find infinite space to grow myself and my coaching practice.

    Will focus in my family, especially my son, who’s leaving for 10 days in LA (first solo plane trip) and think about what I want to do my own trip there the following week.

    But mostly love my family, including the extended fam I’ll see tomorrow. And celebrate everything…including you!

      Love your adjustments Jill! Please come back and report how it went for you. (I start tomorrow….)

      • My Detox was amazing. I surprisingly didn’t “miss” social media at all. I took a ton of pictures “playing” on the farm with my nieces and nephews… I may share eventually, but right now i am enjoying them for ME. I’ve been slow to “get back into” the FB scene. it’s like my juice fast, it took a while to shift back to full meals. Thanks for kicking this off, Hillary!

        • Hillary Rubin says:

          Thank you Jill for coming back to let us know. Awesome… Love how you are enjoying them for you, so sweet! Enjoy it and see how it helps your coaching practice too! xo

I embrace being tuned in, turned on, and tapped in to my intuition and inner guru. Why is it so easy to be with myself and the world around me? I’m open to having more clarity with myself.

      Awesome Gannon, love the inner guru part. Please come back and report how it went for you. (I start tomorrow….)

  14. Am I the only one who is semi-terrified by this challenge! Hello, my name is Brynn, and I am social media detox virgin. What in the world will I do while waiting in line at the grocery store tomorrow? Or when I want to avoid cleaning up the Legos and teenage muntant ninja turtles scattered throughout my house? This could get interesting! :)

    Deep breath. Here goes:
