Something I didn’t anticipate that would move me so much is not having a phone for six weeks. I didn’t pollute my mind with social media, I didn’t have the pressure to respond to my management about jobs as quickly or make decisions all the time.
Absolutely! I’ve always been an advocate for phone detoxes. Every fortnight I switch my phone off for an entire weekend, much to my management’s disgrace, and just not respond to anyone. Whoever I’m with, I try to be very present. It’s the same when I go out to dinner with friends, I don’t take my phone anymore and be present in the moment.
I got my phone back yesterday afternoon. Initially, I didn’t turn it on. It was strange holding it in my hand… The first thing I did was call my mum, my boyfriend, my best friend. I burst into to tears. I missed them so much!
They thought I was having a ball, but they didn’t see the other 23 hours where I was thinking about them, missing them and wondering if they were OK. Having no contact was definitely one of the hardest things.
It was just a part of the experience. I was quite amazed that I could lose four kilos. I was already quite fit and healthy when I went in. To be honest, I probably put two of them back on last night from just having snacks and meals again.
[I want] Nat or Lisa! My jungle sister or my jungle mama.
I am just busting to get out of that plane and see them waiting for me. My boyfriend was saying he was struggling just as much as I was.
We’ll be going to the Coogee Pavilion for our favourite steak, that’s our favourite thing to do.
