Turn Off Your Phone After You Read This

You can do that with the little button on the side. Remember that one?

Probably you will have to slide an icon across the screen. It’s as if the device is saying: “Are you sure you want to do something so drastic? Nobody ever turns off their phone!” Push through. Turn it off. Save 3 hours of your day.

You don’t need the FOMO. You don’t more semi-informed opinions. You don’t need the emails. There are joys to a pixel-free world. Look up. When was the last time you actually looked at the sky?

Just for a moment, live in the world of atoms, not bits. Ready? Deep breath.

Turn it off.
