1. Realization: Sometimes you feel a little too connected. You NEED a break. So you decide to unplug for a while.
2. You’re determined to follow through and know for sure that it’ll do you some good.
3. When you release yourself from all your devices it’s like there’s been a weight lifted off your shoulders. You’re FREE!
4. And you’re actually excited about the idea of not having to catch up on what’s happening on the interweb every 2 minutes.
6. And going back to your more “primitive” hobbies.
7. After some seconds/minutes/days/weeks, you’ve done everything that you wanted…
8. And you feel awesome that you’ve accomplished them without the use of technology.
9. But then slowly but surely, boredom starts to creep up on you.
11. Inevitably the FOMO will start to kick in.
12. And all these indescribable feelings consume you.
15. Take a moment to feel good that you lasted as long as you did.
