This article from Huffington Post is about someone who lost their smartphone and discovered that they were better off with out it.
There is a list of things this person gained by losing their smartphone.
My favorite one listed:
“5. Old-Fashioned Face Time
“Staring at screens constantly takes you away from people and gives you a passive outlet where you don’t have to interact with the world.

Without a smartphone to distract me, I snapped out of that digital hypnosis and started looking people in the eye.”
I admire the generations before us that had access to in person conversations. We’ve lost a certain human touch engulfed by technology. The article has 10 more lessons to be learned from the absence of a smart device. They all have accompanying cool graphics or photos. Hope you ca gain something too.
