There was a discussion in one of my Facebook groups about having a screen-free bedroom. And it really resonated with me. I am on my phone or iPad pretty much until I sleep and 80% of the time the TV is on. I’m starting to think that this isn’t going to be good for our marriage in the long run.
To give you some background, I’m pretty much attached to my phone (and it’s something I really need to work on). Jim is not. We both have smartphones but he’s much.. er.. smarter with his (see what I did there?) The problem is that I’m spending too much time in social media world and not enough time talking and getting to know my husband on a deeper level. I love the nights where we cuddle and just talk for a long time instead of watching TV or playing on my iPad.
This is something that I know I definitely need to improve within our marriage. I need to give up my phone when I lay down. I need to turn off the Internet at bedtime and spend more time with my husband. I have all day for that! I don’t need to let it impede on my relationship too.
What about you? Do you have a screen-free bedroom? Would you consider one?
(I’m linking up with 7 posts in 7 days because I’m going to write 2 in one day because I failed yesterday. Cool? Cool.)
