Do more things that make you forget to check your phone

That’s a cheesy Instagram-ish quote that floats around the internet. You can even buy the sign on Amazon. It stuck with me because I’m a stage five phone clinger.

I just got back from five days at the beach with my family, and I forgot to check my phone for most of that time. I’d get to dinner time and realize that I hadn’t thought about work all day, and I loved it.

I wouldn’t call it relaxing, because vacations with four kids never are. But I was able to mentally disconnect for the first time in years. I want to find ways to do that more often.
