We are all obsessed about getting the best new iPhone or whatever phone. But what if the best phone were no phone?

My ultimate life hack

My ultimate life has been:

Getting rid of my phone.

To NOT own a phone and to NOT use a phone — this is the apex.

Put away the foil hat, and no — 5G won’t zap your balls

The problem with phones:

It re-wires your hormonal and brain signaling processes, which causes you to constantly check this slot-machine dopamine machine.

The phone as a fear-mitigation machine

Why do we check our phones so much?

FOMO, fear of missing out.

Or … the hope of getting some new opportunities (via your Gmail inbox).

Or … the fear that something bad might have happened to your family members.

Or … the feeling of ‘responsibility’ to always be able to be contactable.

The phone as a chain-and-ball

Mental Hygiene

The problem with the rationale of a phone:

People feel as if they have a RIGHT to always contact you.

So in some ways, the phone becomes a sort of chain-and-ball. We are the new slaves.
