I have a simple rule: every time I take the dog outside for a walk I leave my phone behind.
I used to take the phone with me wherever I went — even the bathroom. Now when I abandon it, I can literary feel my mind rebuilding itself.
I have a similar approach for my work desk. I deliberately put the phone out of reach so I don’t have the temptation to snag it.
The resistance, of course, is never perfect. I wish I earned a penny every time my eyes get sucked into that rectangular glow.
Resisting the phone by leaving it behind is a win for my head. So grab a leash and take your thoughts for a walk. It’s impossible to connect the dots when your mind is playing the slot machines all day.
