The No Distractions Phone

I recently deleted the Instagram app from my phone. I noticed I was spending a lot of time in that ‘infinity pool’. Scrolling down on an on, instead of being there, wherever I was.

It started when my 3 year old boy asked;

-Mom, why are you looking at your phone?

I really did not know… and I realised I was not even looking at anything in particular. It was just a thing I did. So I decided to stop.

Then I took little steps every day. Not looking at my phone was challenging to begin with, but after a couple of days it became easier.

I discovered a project called the light phone:




The Light Phone is your phone away from phone.

It’s a casual, secondary phone that encourages you to leave behind your smartphone and enjoy quality time doing the things you love the most, free of distraction. We call this going light.

Our original Light Phone is intentionally limited to phone calls and nine speed dials.


I am reading a book called Make Time, which has a lot of tips to make time for what really matters every day.


Too attached to your smartphone? Ironically, there’s an app for that.
