What? A day without the phone! Impossible.
This absurd idea occurred to me as I caught myself compulsively checking my phone – as though something new had arrived since the last time I’d checked, oh just a few seconds earlier.
It took a week before I could even attempt this daring feat and I’m proud to say I got through the better part of Sunday without my phone.
And it was easier than I thought. I found a refreshing sense of intellectual peace. To be perfectly honest, I also felt liberated from that compulsive checking for emails and Facebook likes or LinkedIn.
And guess what. Turns out I didn’t miss anything. At all.
I’m going to try doing it every Sunday.
May be you can find an opportunity to turn off the chatter. It could be as simple as switching off for an hour somewhere in your day to tap into what really counts and make space for what matters most.
Happy Phone Free Day.
