Extreme Digital Minimalism - Life Without A Phone


Hey friends. Fall is officially here. Here I sit in a warm, favorite sweater, finishing up a mug of steaming matcha. Mmm. The sunlight is golden as it pours in through the windows, and I have spent the morning reading through a current work in progress (exciting!) Please take a moment to tell me how you are down in the comments. How's your autumn so far?

If you follow my YouTube channel, you have probably already seen my latest video, but if you haven't, I'll link it below. 

This one's called life without a phone. Which sounds...different to many. I've been wanting to make a video about this for a while now because it is something that has very deeply (and positively) impacted my life and creativity.

We live in a world that is constantly vying for our attention. We are inundated by consumerism - this toxic idea that we "need more in order to be happy" but in reality nothing could be further from the truth, and this is one of the many reasons I practice minimalism; digitally, and in every other area of my life.

For me, minimalism combats this idea that we endlessly "need more." Minimalism supports a gentle and loving reminder that we are enough, and that we have enough, and I believe that from this place of understanding, we can begin to be creative.

Life without a phone has taught me that I must disconnect from all of the noise in order to truly connect...in order to truly engage my own spirit and creativity. I hope that this video can be an encouragement to you on your own path of creativity and mindfulness. I would love to hear your thoughts below in the comments.

I choose to live without a phone, and to use a phone only when traveling because:

- I believe that phones and other digital devices can create distraction and block our creativity

- I believe that it is important to remain fully present and mindful

- I believe that it is important to use technology mindfully and for the purpose that it was created for: to help us connect when we need to. To inspire, not to hinder. 

How do you practice digital minimalism in your own daily practice, friend? Or, if you do not practice minimalism, how do you cultivate a healthy relationship with the digital items that you own? I would love to hear about your own practice if you would like to share. 🙏🌞🌿


Stay stoked,

Kate

  1. It amazing how you can have "writers block". You can't write or feel inspired to write. Then once you cut out all these "voices" from social media the writers block is suddenly gone. Its like the real block is just filling your mind with useless information thats counterproductive to your purpose. Loved the video and your thoughts on all of this. ❤
