Affirmations for Technology-Life Balance

Thanks Cindy and Asmâa for suggesting this topic!  

This is my time to focus on a Technology Life Balance

I reflect on what times of day I’m vulnerable to wasting time in technology

I recognize my weaknesses when it comes to technology

I address where I’m not happy with my use of technology

I choose a specific time of the day to check my emails and reply to phone calls

I am not reactive to each notification ring, ding or buzz that I get

I pace my responses according to the schedule I have set for me

My apps are in alignment with my goals

When I notice any app taking me off balance, I move it or remove it

I have the discipline to put technology away

While I may be afraid of missing out on something online, I need to consider what I am missing out on offline

I clear time in my schedule to not be in technology

So I can be in nature

So I can be with myself

So I can work on offline life

So I can work on my offline goals

So I can have a technology-life balance

Technology serves my purposes, I don’t serve it’s purposes

It doesn’t control me, I control my interaction with technology

I am free to check my smartphone at long intervals instead of short ones

I train my nervous system to focus on relaxation and not urgency

I give myself time to be alone with my thoughts

There are so many alternatives to checking my smartphone so much

When I feel bored, I have more options than going to my smartphone

When I feel lonely, I have more options than going to my smartphone

When I have free time, I have more options than just engaging with technology

I can stretch my body, take deep breaths, go for a walk, journal, read a book, exercise or make a gratitude list.

I can garden, write a poem, paint, hike, scrapbook, visit the library, clean, organize, declutter, repair a household item, dance, sew, ski, surf, swim or build a model train

Accessing technology is no longer my default activity

I achieve technology - life balance through respecting clear and firm boundaries with my self and with my device  

This means I am clear on how I want to manage my time in email, social media, and text messaging and I stick to it

I know how to tell myself no and I exercise this daily

I recognize where too much tech time hinders my growth and development

I carve my own path and stick to it, even when others are glued to their devices

I am alive for a purpose and it’s not to have technology rule my life

I am a master at setting parameters on my tech use

I set myself up for a happy, healthy and productive life by incorporating technology and not falling prey to overloading on technology

Not everything needs to be instant

And I can exercise discipline, endurance and self-control with any and every incoming message

I’ve got great tech-life balance

And that helps me stay mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually in shape

I am grateful for technology

I am grateful I can use it to my advantage and not my disadvantage

It is a tool to increase my quality of life

I quickly and easily shave the unnecessary

If I have anxiety when not being able to access technology, I address it

I remind myself it’s okay to just turn it off for a while, I will survive

Instead of training my nervous system to be on alert for a notification, I train my nervous system for serenity, relaxation, and mindfulness

I foster values of health, safety and balance when engaging with the internet

I check in with myself regularly to see where my technology-life balance is at

I know how to detach from my phone physically and mentally

Technology doesn’t take me for a ride, I take technology for a ride into my goals, my ambitions, my personal development

I am a master and role model for technology-life balance

I feel fulfilled with how I control when I am online and when I am offline

I know what strategies work for me and my technology-life balance

I am free to determine how and when I engage with technology

I am managing all areas of my life well and this includes technology

I am balanced when it comes to health

I am balanced when it comes to technology

I am living happily, freely and confidently

I have technology-life balance

You Are Enough ❤️

 

Life can get difficult. Jobs are lost, hearts are broken, plans get changed, things go wrong. We’ve all been there.

But when life gives you lemons, how do you cope? How do you navigate through grief with resilience? How do you control your emotions instead of letting them control you?

Maybe you have unhealthy coping strategies. Maybe you bury your emotions, talk down to yourself, or power through the day without allowing yourself even a moment of rest and reflection.
