Put Down Your Phone!

… or laptop, or tablet, or the smart watches… all the high tech stuff that’s daily bombarding our daily lives.

My Dad used to say I carry my phone wherever I go. When he ask me to do something, I have my phone in one hand the other is left to help him.

Yesterday I was watching Girl Meets World. One of the episodes was about two girls phones being taken away. They had to learn to communicate without their phones. I also was watching Shay Mitchell’s YouTube videos. I noticed she didn’t have her phone in her hand all the time.

Today, I did a lot. And it’s only morning! What did I do? I packed most of what I wanted to bring to PA. I had nothing, but a list made of what I wanted to bring to PA. I also cooked food. I did skip breakfast, which isn’t good. But I made a nice scrambled egg burrito with parota. I drank a glass of lemonade my mom had made. I did all this and have time for a little blogging and reading before my afternoon work.

Usually, I sit a around being bored. Sometimes will write a blog or read- something, but only a little something. Today, I feel stress-free and accomplished because I did more than just that. And not only did I do that, I did it without carrying my phone. Without constantly checking the time, or for messages, or play games. I did it all phone-free.

What about you? What can you do if you put down your phone and actually focus on something else besides the constant revolving technology?

  1. I actually stopped meeting a friend for lunch because she could not put her cell phone down long enough to visit. It’s not easy finding time to meet up with busy schedules, it’s disrespectful to turn out like that. Nice article. Thank you for writing it.

    1. Yeah, my Dad would ask me to put down my phone at the dinner table a lot of times when we ate together. I try not to do it often when I’m meeting with friends or coworkers or family. When I’m at home I tend to do it a bit more or if I see the other doing it. I have been in situations where I’m having a conversation with people nonstop on their phones. It irritates me because I feel like they aren’t even listening at all.
