Our lives are what we pay attention to. When we decide what to pay attention to in the moment, we’re making a bigger decision about how we want to spend our time. The people who design all the apps on our phone desperately want our attention, because that’s how they make money. Advertisers are the customers — and our attention is what’s being sold. So ask yourself: What do you want to pay attention to?
Finally everyone knows someone that has a little too much love for their phone (maybe its you) and it is such a challenging thing to change that relationship - but it starts with one small step. Leaving it charging in the kitchen, rather than by your bed or trialling a digital free day on the weekend.
