I want to invite you to do something that may feel a little radical tomorrow morning. When you go to sleep tonight, switch your phone to airplane mode. Eek – did your heart just pitter-patter a bit at the thought?
That’s precisely why you should try it.
It’s no secret we’ve allowed our phones to become an extension of us in quite a harmful way. Step by step, we can begin to break the habit that we’ve created. The first step is switching your phone to airplane mode at night, and not turning it back “on” until two hours after you’ve risen in the morning.
It’s going to feel awkward at first, and maybe even quite difficult.
But I invite you to give it a shot and see what it feels like to be “disconnected” for a spell.
