I received a watch from JORD in exchange for my honest opinion. As always, all thoughts are completely my own.
How often do you grab your phone to see what time it is, start checking something on social media or your messages, only to realize after you put your phone away that you have no clue what time it is? Story of my life several times a day. In the post about my goals for 2017 I mentioned that one of my big goals for this year was to be less on my phone. So I installed an app to monitor my phone usage and let me tell you, it was quite depressing!
One of the actions I took was to buy an old-fashioned alarm clock and abandon my phone from our bedroom. This was a total game changer for me and helped me to start sleeping so much better (if only my son would also get back to sleeping through the night, but hey, you can´t have it all). However, I still noticed that during the day I used my phone quite a bit and not so much in total time, but more in pickups.
Time to get these down as well. First, I eliminated almost all notifications, so that even if I would pick up my phone it was no “fun” anyway because there was nothing to see (well, apart from a super cute pic of the little guy). And then to get rid of the checking the time on my phone habit (without actually seeing the time), I figured it was time for a new, pretty watch. I had quite a few watches but a lot of them were old or broke down so I didn´t really use them every day and they were just gaining dust in my jewelry box.
What I needed was a stylish, great watch that I could wear with most of my outfits and that would be comfy to wear both at home and at work. And that´s where JORD Woodwatches came in! I love my new wooden watch from JORD and am happily wearing it every day. Their unique watches are just so pretty (and the material is super original) and match perfectly with my winter and spring outfits, so no excuse any more to not wear a watch. Since I have been mindful about putting a cool watch on again, I have checked my phone much less for the time and this is visible in my usage because my pickups are steadily declining.
Who said shopping couldn´t contribute to achieving your goals :)??
The good news is that you can also get yourself one of these watches, I have teamed up with JORD to give away shop credit for their store. The lucky winner will receive $100 shop credit but EVERYONE who enters will get a $25 giftcard. What are you waiting for? Go enter here and get your shop credit.
