A little while ago we talked about checking our cell phones first thing in the morning, and I loved reading all of your thoughts! As it turns out, must of us do check our phones first thing in the morning, and most of us are trying to change that habit.
This got me thinking more and more about cell phones, and how I can be more conscious about using mine. One of my favourite yoga teachers, Jessica Stickler, says that she doesn't bring her cell phone with her when she goes for dinner with someone.
I have to say that I hate it when I go out for dinner/coffee/a drink with a friend and they keep their phone on the table the whole time. It makes me feel like they're just hanging out until a better option comes along. Of course, I am totally guilty of doing this as well but I'm trying to change.
For now, I'm trying my best to put my iphone on silent when I'm with friends. I've noticed that this helps me to feel more present and much more connected with the person I'm spending time with.
So I'm curious, do you have any of your own iphone-rules? Do you bring your phone out to dinner, or leave it at home?
