I wrote about this on Thursday before I had really tried it, and holy cow, is it hard to quit your cell phone.
I'm not talking about cold turkey either.
Simply cutting down on the useless, fanatical, voyeuristic, sad, meaningless, and relentlessly systematic perusal of garbage information we all do several times an hour was one of the hardest things I've done.
Like the slowly boiled frog, what started as a convenient way to carry your office with you has become an albatross around our necks. We need to stop. Let's do it together. Let's try to dial it back to only checking social media three and email three times a day.
Let's sit in a bar and not take our phone out once. Let's spend the entire weekend with our family directing all our ideas to the people we love instead of strangers. Let's had ideas again. You can't think if you're constantly scrolling.
I have quit a million things over the years and it's usually kind of fun. But this feels like Wolverine removing those weird steel claw things from his fists. The fact that it's so incredibly difficult shows how far down the rabbit hole we've unknowingly gone.
