The things that i have noticed during this week are quite interesting. The first thing that i started feeling was phantom vibrations in my pockets, and i would keep putting my hand on my pocket to see if i got anything before i realized that I do not have my smartphone on me. And it actually took a while to get over it.
In addition to that, i would constantly check the phone to see if someone texted me at all. And honestly it is really annoying. Not because i don’t have any notifications, but because of the fact that i kept checking. It felt like i was an addict looking for my fix.
After a few days, this started to happen less frequently. I would stop checking it, and honestly, it felt like freedom! It felt so good, that i actually seriously thought of doing this permanently but then quickly scraped that away because that will actually negatively affect my life, since work is dependent on me having a smartphone.
Nevertheless, that was an awesome experience! One that everyone should try to do every once in a while. Just to get perspective on their lives, and actually live in the moment.
