A new month means a new Slow Home Experiment, and in August Ben and I are going screen-free in the bedroom.
Honestly, this sounds like something we should already have had on lockdown, but as we discuss in today’s episode there’s been a bit of backsliding in recent months and the mobile phones have slowly snuck back in to the bedroom.
There’s no doubt in my mind that having a screen in the bedroom has impacted both my sleep and my morning rhythm negatively, which begs the question why I haven’t made the shift earlier. But as we talk about in this episode, the power of habit is a mighty thing to turn around.
Ben is feeling quite nervous about this one (which is a nice change!) while I’m feeling optimistic about the challenge as well as the impact its going to have on my daily rhythms.
There’s a very low barrier to entry to this month’s experiment so please feel free to play along with us, and tag your social media posts with #slowhomeexperiment.
