“This basket is for mornings and evenings when I’m lying in bed and don’t want to scroll but do something,” Terra said, holding up her own bedside table.

The box is filled with items such as books, coloring books, journals, decks of cards and even a ukulele.

“You don’t have to be good at it, you don’t have to post it anywhere… just enjoy it,” she said.

Terra emphasized that her personal goal isn’t to stop using her phone in bed, but rather to avoid scrolling social media.

She suggests phone calls and FaceTiming friends are also great options, and recommends a book of questions to provoke more meaningful conversations.

“I would recommend trying an ‘alternative’ day for just one day a week to start,” reads the on-screen video.

“Then try two days next week. If that’s doable, move on to three. Try three days a week for a couple of weeks – then switch to four, etc.

Terra says she even goes to YouTube to follow yoga routines or watch a comedy show.

“I like reading online articles and looking for random new things,” she said.

“I have to afford the flexibility to answer my phone and have screen time. I just try to be more conscious about it so I end up feeling better.”

She cautioned that most items in the basket must be purchased, but Terra said she’s built her own personal basket over a few years and adding things little by little doesn’t feel expensive.

The video has received almost 250,000 views and almost 50,000 likes.

Other users shared their own experiences of scrolling on their phones in their comments.

“I see your point about not scrolling social media, it’s gotten so bad for me that I think watching a movie is productive,” one person wrote.

Terra replied, “I watch a movie for entertainment, which is vital for leisure and recreation!”
