Life with ups and down.
Life with good and bad.
All in one package
After no MacBook Air (someone stole it last August!) and then accidentally broke my smartphone, for very few days I was a bit lost without them. However, it was not for long. Instead worry and unable to work, I tend to see it as life experiment.
This is a post of “A month without smartphone”, which not a trial but an experience (OK I have spare laptop from office which is nice, an Asus Zenbook UX303LA). After all, I see this month as new opportunity to
1. Stop procrastinating
Instead checking social media at home, I am actually reading books and more writing at home. Not wasting my time and do more meaningful things. It becomes more especially I am quitting Facebook already for more than a month now. It feels good somehow :)
2. More reading
I will download all my reading list and read it offline on Pocket. Very useful and I have ticked all down my reading list to zero now :)
3. Make more productive time and less distraction
Instead checking email and messages all the time, I tend to manually checking them in the morning or later on late afternoon. It surely becomes a good habit.
4. Meaningful relationship
Instead messaging, I will make a phone call to friends and families. This probably the best benefit at all! since I love close and face to face interaction with real people.
I think after this experience, I will think over again to buy new (expensive) smartphones. Anyhow, we shall see later :)
Could you live without smartphones even just a day?
