I’ve been years without a cellphone, until my daughters became tall enough to go to school and the city alone, by foot, bus, tramway. Then I got one for obvious reasons.
Until then I sarcastically invented the laws of cellphone :
- Don’t have a cellphone
- If you have one, don’t take it with you : drawer & off
- If you have to take it, put it off
- If you have it in your bag and it’s beeping, don’t answer
- If you answer, say : “It’s a secret”
Today I propose an exercise. Go out, for a walk or to work, without your phone. YES it’s possible. Try it. Go erranding without your phone.
Then, mindfully, realize your sense of panic “at the idea”, and when you do it. For real.
Then… Whatever. Think about it!
Have a nice day, though…
