Have you ever stood in front of your microwave, thinking, ‘c’mon, c’mon I haven’t got all minute’!
Do you have more time now than before you had a mobile phone? Your mobile should be a productivity, efficiency and safety tool for you, not a convenience for everyone else who has your number.
If your phone is becoming a ball and chain, educate others by not ‘always’ answering or responding.
If it doesn’t need to be on, and you’d like or need some privacy or quiet time, just turn it off! The power button is not made of kryptonite, you can do this. Check for messages later. If they need you, they will call back.
