I Gave Up The Internet For A Week

  • Published on Jun 22, 2018
  • After feeling too attached to the internet, social media, and my devices for so long, I decided to go cold turkey -- 100% internet free for an entire week.

    1. Parents need to stop complaining about “Oh my child is so spoiled and glued to their phone” “My children don’t go outside anymore”. First of all, why buy them a phone in the first place? I’d assume so you’d know where they are, and to text/connect with people, right?. That’s why my parents have gotten me a phone. Of course I play games or go on social media, but guess what? I still have restrictions on my phone. If you don’t want your kids to be glued to their phone then give them a time of how long to use it, unless needed for emergencies.
    2. Adults like to complain on how the next generation will grow up with iPhones and not know what it was like without technology. Adults have been a the ones producing and updating technology. I’m sorry but if a product is a good ass product then people are gonna buy it.
    3. It’s really not a bad thing at all growing up with technology either. Before, society didn’t know about the outside world as much. Counties without modern technology don’t know much about the dangers going on around the world. In fact I think technology helps open your eyes. Technology gives us so many pros it’s too much to list. However, being on your phone 24/7 is bad. Hell, too much of anything is bad. You need to create a balance. Again, balance goes back to parents giving their kids restrictions on phone. Many adults need to take a break sometimes too. At dinner both my parents are on their phones throughout, they can’t even take a 30 min break.
    Balance is all you need in life. That’s my best advice.

    My highschool has a lot of amazing trips you can go on and they are making almost all of them tech free to force kids to be more present and engaged on the trips! I've gone on a trip every year (I just graduated) and honestly when you're in other country, especially doing a homestay without your phone, it's scary. But I felt like it did make me really focus in on other people and the interactions I had with them. Would 100% recommend you try this next time you travel somewhere or even at home!

    I turned twenty not too long ago, it took me until I was seventeen to figure out what google was. I've never had any friends because I don't know how to navigate my phone (seriously, like wheres the instructions?!) I write letters to all of my family members if I want to stay in touch...I'm at a library typing this btw. Because I don't have internet. To answer your question, yes absolutely I live out in the middle of nowhere.
    Anyway, just clicked on this video to see how people reacted in the comments. Just remember that to me\us, you guys are the weird ones! You're a slave to a little box that talks to you!

    P.S Oh yeah, I also didn't have tv's, ipods etc etc. And a girl thought I was mocking her once when I smiled at her bag and asked who was on it...I grew up in the One Direction era so apparently not knowing who Harry Stiles and Justin Beiber were was offensive?

    This is such a common struggle!
    One thing that helped me a lot was to set a daily limit on social media apps and also block them completely during sleeping hours. I also don't have email notifications on my phone because I realised that gave me so much anxiety. I still check my emails daily on my computer, but once it's off everything work related is done for the day and it helps me relax and get better sleep :)
    Thank you for your great content!

    There have been two times that I've been forced to go a full week with no phone bc they've broken. It was insanely frustrating trying to spend time with people.. At some point every time they would all have their phones out and leave me out to dry. But over all it was really nice being disconnected. I've never really used social media (- TVclip) but not even having the option felt nice. Having to ask for the time constantly got me some weird looks though lol.

    The internet is an amazing place to discover things. But the internet can also be your worst nightmare. It sucks that people ( and myself ) constantly compare themselves to random strangers, random "picture perfect" moments. But everyone struggles with their own insecurities. Just remember that you are perfect the way you are and don't let society or random people tell you, how you should act or look. Be yourself because that is what makes people unique. Have a great day to whoever is reading this :)

    That is interesting, not being able to get an uber ride by calling, but I suppose the system is like most software/apps in that they try to avoid contact with customers. I have never had to pay for a ride, so I haven't used any kind of ride service and may have shared a taxi once and got a limo back from a club once (compliments of the club). While I am not into social media much, I love watching youtube and use the internet constantly for work and hobby. Actually, from reading so much on the internet, I know much more about a variety of topics that otherwise I wouldn't have been exposed to. Almost all of the answers are floating around on the internet..............just have to find them.

    When I get home I allways get tons of notifications from TVclip and Instagram and it takes a while to catch up on everything I've missed
