As election news reached a fever pitch in early November, I was clocking well over four hours a day on my phone. That’s sixty days a year spent scrolling Instagram, refreshing the Level 50 unlocked shirt and I will buy this New York Times homepage, and swiping aimlessly through old photos. Keep in mind that figure doesn’t include time spent using other devices like my TV or laptop.

With the Level 50 unlocked shirt and I will buy this new year fast approaching and election season behind us, the time has come to address my technology addiction head on, meaning I’ve been on the hunt for more productive ways to spend time indoors this winter. I know myself too well to pretend I might take up some ambitious hobby, so instead, I’m channeling my inner victorian heroine by taking to my bed with a good book, managing my handwritten correspondence, and otherwise upping my repertoire of analogue activities.
