Last month I dropped my phone for the first time ever and it smashed.
A total right off, there was no way I could use it. I am not going to lie, I was really upset- pathetic I know but I was so shocked that it had smashed.
I rang my provider to sort it all out, I had to send my phone off and go to a local store to get a loan phone.
The Loan Phone
Now I had no idea what sort of phone this was going to be and I was not bothered- as long as I could use it that would be fine. I ended up with a posh brick phone (think it was an Alcatel One Touch) and I did struggle to use it.
It had the basics of texting and calling but that was it, no apps or social media. But you know what, I bloody loved it. Yes I struggled at first but I loved having this basic brick.
No Smart Phone
It was bliss, having no notifications or messages going off. Whilst I was ill when this happened, I was able to sit outside or inside and just chill without any distractions. I found that I could appreciate the world more- I could really look at my garden and enjoy what I was seeing in front of me not on a screen
The Struggle is real guys
I did need my phone of the week I was without it, I couldn’t access my diary to know for events/work shifts/ interviews/ driving lessons.
I couldn’t message everyone- I did need to use my laptop for email and social and of course I needed it to update my blog.
So yes I did struggle but I found it so refreshing.
I think everyone should go smart phone free for a week, not drop it of course.
Just turn it off and look up and experience the world from a new view.
