How to Break Up with Your Phone
Rating: 4 / 5
‘Breaking up with your phone’ is a concept likely to strike fear in most millennials—and even their predecessors. Most of us struggle to admit our smartphone addiction, and are massively challenged when trying to break it.
Enter author Catherine Price and her hugely informative yet entirely down-to-earth guide that tries to lift your eyes from the screen. Price doesn’t encourage ‘throwing your phone under a bus’, but dissects the detrimental effects of our devices, before devising simple steps to curb our notification cravings. Across several stages Price sets boundaries to relinquish control and reclaim hours spent on our phones, focusing on happy habits for an overall better quality of life.
The book is far more than a 30-day plan; it’s a rude awakening on what we decide to pay attention to and who pays for it—one that I hope we will all share with our nearest and dearest.
