I remember a time not so long ago where I could get ready for my day and head out the door without worrying about my cell phone being charged. It was a time of freedom from constant contact with people.
We didn’t have to worry about being in touch with everyone at a moments glance. If there was an emergency well you dealt with it without a phone. I personally think life was a lot easier then.
Of course I’m on my phone as I write this blog. Sort of hypocritical of me, but it’s something that I see every day. People looking down on their phones, texting, searching for something, making calls. I just don’t think its necessary to have personal phone calls in a public place. Or business calls. Our world has become one of no faxes, just seeing the tops of heads.
Wouldn’t it be interesting if there were cell phone free areas? A bus, or subway. A grocery store. Or maybe one day a month where all internet around the world is unavailable. Now that would be great! One day we could all just turn our phones off and spend it doing whatever you want without the distraction of our phones.
What do you think? Could you survive one day without your phone?
