There are many different stories we can tell ourselves to give up on the “busy culture” (if only for a moment) and bring focus back into our life.
- Sorry, my phone ran out of battery.
- There was no reception on the train.
- I don’t have a smartphone.
- The plane had no WiFi.
- I forgot my phone at home.
- I was at work.
- I switched off my phone.
There is one difference among all of them: some are options we take, self-imposed restrictions, personal decisions; others are imposed to us by external conditions which are out of our control.
If you need to, use these stories to help you disconnect.
