Earlier this year, sometime during Spring, my Smart Phone decided to quit on me. It just completely flatlined. Just like the next person, my first thoughts were OK What Phone Should I get Next? I always take my time to make a legit decision as I do my research & don’t really rush into anything, but this question has still not been answered…
Of course at first it’s sort of weird not having a smart phone on you. I started using my old Nokia phone. It’s not a smart phone, but it’s still alive after all these years! After some time, I got used to using a simple phone.
The things that followed were definitely happy surprises that I hadn’t expected.
I started sleeping so much better! I remember the days when I had my iPhone, oh man! With all those notifications & cool blinking light notification and whatnot, I was always connected to my phone. I’m convinced that people who do not own an iPhone sleep a lot better and are less likely to develop insomnia.
Another amazing thing that happened is that now I am able to do things and be in the moment and completely take all of my surroundings in without distractions. Also because I work online and I’m working on Social Media Managing and I’m Blogging & Vlogging I love my free time away from all of these things. I need to disconnect, so that I can go back to work after. Of course I do bring my camera with me, and I will get video footage or photos or whatnot, but I don’t have a phone on me that’s blowing up every 2 minutes & I love that!
Maybe at some point, I will purchase a new smart phone but that probably won’t happen this year. I am very happy with my newfound freedom. I dare you to also take a day off from your smart phone or try an entire weekend away. Who knows, maybe you will enjoy it too!
