Cell pones are the Devil!!! Here’s why. Every time you upgrade those hateful little gadgets, you create toxic waste for future generations. Plus your phone is a tracking device. You’re chipped and you pay a hefty monthly fee for it. Think about all the wasted time you spend on the phone instead of living the life that is right in front of you. Think about the example you are setting for your children. Think about how different your life would be if you had no cell phone.

Let’s see…

Instead of being connected 24 seven you would have time to work on your insecurities and fix why you feel the need to be on the phone all the time or at least available to everyone for any reason. I mean really, it’s a problem.

Instead of spending your afternoon at the Apple store being “helped” by a 20 year old who can’t understand why you don’t just want to throw away your crappy-6-month-old phone and upgrade to the newest model, you could be spending quality time with your children, taking a restful nap, meditating, getting some exercise, writing in your journal, or learning a new language.

Instead of almost running off the road while trying to text, you could be paying attention to what the heck you’re doing!!!

And by the way, your phone can’t protect you from danger. No one is ever really safe. Besides, if you’re out in the middle of no where and your car breaks down or you get lost guess what? There’s no cell service in the middle of nowhere, trust me.  If the 1000 year flood hits, guess what? Nobody’s phone is going to work. Been there, done it.

Try giving it up for a few weeks and you’ll find that life is a bit more enjoyable. You have more time, better time. You may even be able to cut back on your prescriptions.

So go ahead, give it a try. Turn of the phone. I know you can do it.
