Mobile phones have become ubiquitous. We use it at all times. But, can you keep your self away from it during the time you are awake?
I did experiment with myself on my focussing and concentrating ability to see how much time I am able to focus on a non mobile activity?
I switched off the notifications on my device. I decided that I am going to use my phone only for calls. If anyone is really interested to get in touch, he or she will call me.
I have seen that how parents use the phone or don’t use the phones have a direct impact on the child’s behaviour too. There is more household chitchat and play which the mobile phone has stolen from us.
In my experiment which lasted a day. I was able to keep away from phone and do ‘unitasking’. I am happy that, I am able to focus on one task at the time, where multi tasking was my status quo for a long time. I felt more productive than busy after a long time.
I felt a sense of serenity which I used to enjoy during my college days. This can be partly explained with the reading of the book on ‘The One Thing’ by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan which I highly recommend reading.
I have a sense of gratitude that myself and my family have seen off 2020 without being affected by Covid. I thank all my readers for their prayers and wish you all good health and safety in this 2021.
Till then, Stay Calm and Stay Safe.
