Cell phones... we all use them, but to what degree? Is it a crutch? An escape? Are you bored? I remember listening to a podcast that taught me the two minute theory, which really helped me detach. When you put your phone down, the first two minutes are the hardest.. but if you can make it past those two minutes that you itch to check your phone, creativity will begin and the attachment will start to leave. Put your phone away. Go do something and leave it in your car. Wear a watch and purchase an in home clock to prevent you from using your device to tell time. Practice patience. Be present with those you engage with, no distractions. Make your connections real and more meaningful. Read a book. Have a conversation. Let your phone die and don’t charge it. Phones can be good, but watch the boundaries. Do not let it control you.
