Here are the four rules we followed (or tried to follow):
1. No screens in bed.
2. Schedule all email once daily.
3. Limit social media to 30 min daily.
4. Limit all streaming to one day.

And yes, Natalie and I are technically married. But we're having a wedding next year with family and friends so we pretend like that whole Vegas thing never happened ;)

Apart from minimalism you taught me how to have more *acceptance* . Means a lot of times we can't accept if our partner doesn't accept what we believe is a great thing

my phone has this app called digital wellbeing, I set up timer on apps that I mindlessly and compulsively checking suchlike ig, fb, messenger, and twitter. So, if the timer is up, then the app will stop functioning for the whole day. I have this reminder which is to create more, consume less. Sorry for the wrong grammar

I think you two are very compatible is because you try things together while keeping things real, and both of you value that strongly. And the fact that she still follows your lead despite knowing that it wouldn't work for her, makes the relationship all the more sweeter.

The rules are a good challenge. But I think you’re a bit of a dick to your fiancé. I hope she takes it all in good fun, but damn that jab at her for not having a job made me cringe hard.
