Why You Should Break Up With Your Smartphone

Robyn Hobbs

I always make sure to add in a dose of nature in my life. I’ve been working on designing my life to be enjoyable in all areas (but nothing is perfect obviously). To me this has meant doing activities, seeing people, and taking on projects that align with me and resonate with my values.

It’s been 2 years since I finished my Master of Environmental Studies degree and I haven’t looked back. Everyday I work on being attuned with my body, creating space in my life away from technology, and connecting with my surroundings and living breathing things (and people).

This photo below was snapped a few weeks ago when Gary and I had an off the grid day (well I did – he’s not always connected since he works as an engineer and not connected to social media all the time for work, so he doesn’t desire a break like I do). The more I take a break and unplug, the happier I am. I realized my anxiety and stress was magnified by the time spent on digital devices.

I’m currently realizing how much I LOVE READING again. One of the books I’m reading right now is How to Break Up With Your Phone by Catherine Price… and it’s amazing, hilarious and really informative. I realized while talking with my friend Coco that a few years ago I realized I needed to ‘break up with my phone’ and I’ve been working on establishing a healthy relationship with my phone.

Le Prix Reading

I’m thinking about doing an IGTV episode about the book and reading to you a little survey to see where you stand with your mobile devices. What do you think? Are you wanting to have a better relationship with your mobile device? Are you good?

To be clear, I am not saying stop using your phone. Just work on a healthy relationship with your mobile device. Not convinced? There are countless reasons to take a break like:

  • You'll sleep better
  • You'll be happier
  • You'll feel way better about yourself
  • It'll help your eyes get a break
  • It will help you be more focused
  • You'll be a better driver (again more focused)
  • Your relationships will be better (you won't be distracted by FOMO and other notifications that really aren't that important
  • You'll be more preset

This is the book that I have fallen in love with and really opened my eyes. Shop it now and feel like you have more hours in the day.

 I hope this inspires you to try to take a little break, turn off your ringer at night (mine is always on airplane mode while I sleep), and have some unplugged time.

I absolutely love getting to know about all of you incredible women. Tell me about your relationship with your mobile devices.

Hugs and positivity,

Robyn xo
