Take 28 Days to Unplug and Connect

February Unplug to Connect Challenge
My Social Media Apps
All of these Apps Have Been Deleted Off My Phone

To many people, this may be too much information, but I believe in order, to understand the challenge completely, you have to take a look into the behaviors that prompted it. Your behaviors may be a little different but see if any of the reasons may be the same.

I have found that I use social media apps as a main source of connection with friends, family, and people in general while making it my go to time suck. I have related sex, likes, and comments to connection. I have found myself craving validation in the arms of different people and all the while craving a connection that the interaction could never create. Do you hear yourself anywhere in this conversation?

Through this challenge, my intention is to make real connections with people both who I have allowed myself to fall out of contact with and those who I am yet to meet. I have scheduled myself to be in a few networking events. I will reach out and call old friends with the intention on getting together for a drink, coffee, a meal or movie. I will create a Mantra, finish this Jedi class, and keep you updated weekly on my progress this month.

This week’s thoughts:

What do I really use social media for? What ways can I create real connections instead?

This week's actions:

  • Take all social media/hook up apps off your phone
  • Make at least five phone calls to friends you haven’t talked to in a while
  • Send birthday cards to anyone with a birthday this week
  • Find events for the month where you can connect with new people in real life

Do you find yourself constantly looking down at your phone to check social media? When is the last time you called a friend to talk instead of sending a text? When is the last time you invited a friend over to play a game? Do you find yourself searching on dating apps?

There are so many different barriers to creating real connections these days and one of the biggest I have found is my reliance on social media and apps to communicate. I have devised a challenge for myself to eliminate my reliance on social media and test my sense of connection to the people around me.


A screenshot of all the apps that will be goingThe Challenge:

  • Remove social media apps from phone
  • Set up time each week to see people in person
  • Send at least 3 people a personal note in the mail
  • No texting more than an address
  • Create Networking Event for my business
  • Go to at least 2 other Networking events
  • Weekly Updates Emailed to List


Social Media is not evil and had its uses which is why I will still be checking in daily using my computer for timed visits.(30 minutes twice daily). I am also doing a couple things this week to get things ready such as writing down important birthdays (Yes, I do love those reminders), addressing the challenge in my profiles, and making sure my MailChimp is working correctly.

So who would like to join me? Drop me a message and I will make sure to support you. You can also follow along with my journey (and get the rest of my great content in your inbox) by clicking here.
