The reason our phone is in our hand is because we fear missing something.
The average number of times a person checks their phone each day is 150 times.
Even if it does vibrate, we check anyway in anticipation.
The fear of missing something is eclipsing what we’re really missing – each other, new experiences, the beauty around us, time to think.
Spend an equal amount of time discovering something new not fearing what you will miss.
Instead of pounding away at your phone to keep the fear of missing something away, change your goal to have the highest quality relationship with other people – on and off the phone.
Be more focused on what you’re missing in real time than on your phone – helpful reminders change habits.
