Nor does she mince words when taking on one behemoth in particular. “I hate it,” she writes. “The company is one of the biggest mistakes in modern history, a digital cesspool that, while calamitous when it fails, is at its most dangerous when it works as intended. Facebook is an ant farm of humanity.”

Last week, I decided to leave my smartphone at my desk with only a sharp pencil and my notebook. Yes, I did feel more engaged during the meeting, but I also felt like I was missing my phone.
My current state of my phone
- I have deleted all video based apps (YouTube, Hulu, Netflix) and only have those apps that are education based
- I have deleted all news based apps (NyTimes) and use Pocket to read/listen to articles that have saved from previous browsing to be read later
My plan to further curve usage
- Charging my phone in a cabinet away from my bed
- First 45 minutes of waking up, I do a 45 minute routine of meditation, stretching, reading, biking, writing a blog post before touching a phone
- Shutdown my phone in restaurants when I am with someone else
- Leave my phone at my desk during a meeting
- Leave my phone at my desk when I’m meeting up with someone else
