Those of you who disconnected from the internet what was it like?

Disconnecting from everything such as video games, social media, the internet, tv and movies etc.
Getting off the Internet sometimes is very necessary for your overall wellbeing. Internet addiction is real and does more bad than good. Take off some time and spend with real friends offline. The feeling is better than say engaging endlessly on social networking sites. That said, the internet is also good as sometimes you get information in real time which makes you well-informed, but as everything else in life, moderating Internet use is crucial.
i didn't have any access to the internet at my accomodation for two weeks - it was absolutely painful. in 2022 can't live without the ability to communicate online whether it's for business or pleasure. i don't do movies/tv, video games and don't do much social media on a regular basis tho so compared to the average person i guess i'm a monk.

The world would be better! It would be like the 80s
I do it for a few hours once a week. It leaves you more alone with your thoughts, and you find regular things more interesting. However, it is quite difficult, especially without family and friends around.
You've undoubtedly had this problem before, whether it's on your smartphone, tablet, or computer: while online, the Internet randomly disconnects and then reconnects or you have to reconnect. The issue is that it continues to act in this manner.
