Listening to an actual radio

Listening to an actual radio

Listening to an actual radio frees us from the pressure of making decisions that we normally do while deciding what Podcast or digital station to listen to. It is a simple pleasure and the warm radio tones are soothing.

Old school things 
As we enter 2020, we try to remember the good, wholesome things that we used to do as kids, which are now a distant memory, because most of us are glued to technology and lost in a distraction-filled world.
Cooking from a cookbook

Remember the joy of having flour everywhere and olive oil on your fingers, or simply glancing over to an open book, rather than on a small screen of a smartphone which keeps on going off, or worse, gets filled with ads.

Repair broken stuff yourself

Attempting to fix things when they break is more satisfying than letting someone else taking care of them, or replacing them.

Blogging or personal website

Blogging, or just having your own little website was a great thing when the Internet wasn't hijacked by social media and retail giants.

Playing games around the table 

Playing games around a table with other people was a genuine treat and a really fun experience of togetherness.

Sitting down to a board game gets everyone together physically, and also mentally-you can't play a game while half-absorbed in your phone. It's easy to be fully present because there's always something to do, to hope for, and to talk about.

Measure your expenses

Take a hard look at how much you are spending day to day. Every time you spend money, write it down as it happens in a little notebook or log it into an app.

Alternatively, use the envelope method. Make an envelope for each of your non-fixed expenses, like groceries, clothes, entertainment and budget a certain amount of money for each envelope. When an envelope is empty, you have no more money to spend until the following month.

IDEAS

A child's pre-teen and teen years are a high-emotion transitory period. This is due to shifting classmates, social pressure, multiple classrooms and a period of many 'firsts'.

Digital minimalism

Digital minimalism is a "philosophy of technology use in which you focus your online time on a small number of carefully selected and optimised activities that strongly support things you value, and then happily miss out on everything else."  - Cal Newport

Use technology to "support" your personal goals, rather than letting it "use" you.
