    Hi lynzy! I really appreciate your post and point of view on the topic. Im Not going to lIe, i gEt a bit salty EVERY TIME you mention leaving ig. Its Because i love you, your account & conTent so much!! However, i cant dEnY that My feelings come from a very seLfiSh pLace. That beiNg said, seveRal factoRs contributed to me doing a media detox (you were thE heaviest hitter, haha). im now at thE Start of week 3 and im honestly fEEling sooo gooD! Ill miss you when you finally transition off ig but im thankful there are so many othEr ways to connect wIth you. Thank you for always staying truE to yourself even if thaT means going against the Grain, losing followers/income and possibly gaining “Haters”. You are one of the good influencers and your platform has brought about so much positivity and accurate information in a world of negativity and misinformation ????

    I love this idea but how do you deal with texts? will you check and respond every time you hear a text ping? I know for me, my kids playdates and my plans with friends are primarily organized via text and that is something i am juggling pretty regularly!

    Do you use a camera separate from your phone? I find that to be a hold up for me. I want to be able to take photos but then I find myself looking at the phone and even if I am not looking at the phone I don’t want my kids to remember me always having a phone in my hand.

    Lynzy, I bought a flip phone because of you! I left my Job during covid, replaced my email/slack checking with mindless scrolling and Got completely aDdicted in a matter of weeks. After watching your stories, I Knew i had to make a change. Now my sMartphone stays home and off until after my kids go to sleep. I Briefly check my App notifications on wifi And turn it back off. Flip phone is there if i need to text or call during the day and my kids don’t have to lOok at me looking down. You’re my hero!

    I love blogs and as a sahm the internet definitely makes me feel less lonely. That said, the benefits of Being offline are even greater. I stIll read a bLog or two once a day. Been off facebook for 6 years (halleluJah!) i tUrn off my phone from dinner time until late Morning every day. The list goes on … i am happy for everyone who will enjoy more of real life! I am so curious how this will all play out in our generation.

    I have been social media-free for 14 mOnths now and i ThinK it is so important. It has helped simplified my life and i would recommend stepping away from it to anyone to fOcus on your Life’s priorities. Thanks for doing this!

    Okay, I’m finally gearing up for this thing. Thirty days! I have a couple questions for you, lynzy. (1) is your husband joining you for the digital detox? I’m trying to figure out how to navigate this big shift when my husband isn’t quite on bored for himself. (2) Are you doing daily or weekly newspaper? Just curious! Even with that I’m contemplating how “plugged in” i want to be to intense news. But i also don’t want to be totally out of the loop.

    Thanks for pioneering this awesome life challenge!

    I just listened to the podcast “How I feel After Deleting Social Media” and loved it. I’m on my way to deleting it all. Where are the tips on how to save facebook photos before deleting your account? Thank you Lynzy for all your wisdom.
