“You own the phone. It doesn’t own you.” Ed Young, Jr.
Technology has made it easy to be always connected and always available. That’s too big of a burden for anyone to carry.
Just because your phone rings does not mean you must answer it. It’s your choice.
Just to prove to yourself and your phone that you own it, try a couple of things:
- Set Do Not Disturb on your phone from the evening until work hours.
- Intentionally leave your phone somewhere where you can’t access it for a while.
What do you do to prove that you own the phone?
