iPhones and to be present society has changed

Observing on my train journey how 80% of people in my carriage are using their iPhone or Androids, makes me think. What did we do before these gadgets? I remember my first Nokia mobile phone. It was the size of a brick! I still have it. Most likely a collector item today.

I think the world we live in is great in terms of communication. I’ve lived abroad and away from family and friends a lot. However distance doesn’t matter or feel as difficult when you can call using Viber, WhatsApp, FaceTime messenger. It truly changes things. At least for me. I will however stick to my third challenge of being more present and disconnect for a week. Tell myself that I won’t check work messages, or scroll internet between certain set hours. Maybe a bit contradictory as I am now working on getting this blog looking nice and attracting readers! But… I still think it’s a good thing to do!
