Getting rid of the smartphone improved my life 52%. if your work and family life allows for it I would strongly urge you to live without one. It's such a relief not having it
Another way to put it is the phone is home now. and I don't like it, I'm addicted and I don't like it. I'd like to try to cut it out completely but there are some things that prevent me: work mainly, also whatsapp, spotify, citymapper and dating apps. Do you have any techniques to reduce time on your phone?it wouldnt be unusual for a human of 2018 to wake up, reach blearily for phone, scroll through
news feed, after shitting and showering return to phone over breakfast, stayed glued to phone
throughout commute, get to work, put down phone and sit IN FRONT OF A COMPUTER SCREEN
ALL DAY, phone over lunch, phone home, phone in bed before sleep.
not to mention socialising on whatsapp and orgasms with pornhub.
at that level of usage it is no exaggeration to say that SCREEN IS NOW PRIMARY ENVIRONMENT
and that, like in the phantom tollbooth, the world outside is disappearing.
