Have you ever walked into a restaurant and all you see are people on their cell phones? There are two people who should be sharing a meal but instead of talking to each other, they are both in their own worlds, swiping or clicking away. What is the point of going out together then? Is it not possible to share one meal without your mind being elsewhere?
What about you? Are you reading this on your cell phone right now? Do you remember the days when we didn’t have a cell phone attached to our hands?
It seems as though we are in an era where everyone we know has a cell phone. And not only do we all have them but they are constantly in front of our face or at our fingertips. It seems as though the phones and our hands are permanently connected. So why is that we need to use every free moment we have to distract ourselves? Shouldn’t we learn to just be?
Is it possible to go through a day without looking at the phone? We want to know. Take the WuWu challenge and put your phone for a meal, half a day, or an entire day! Live in the moment. Look around and be in your own life instead of talking to people who are not currently present in front of you.
Kadam and Shailee are going to discuss the situation where Shailee ended up without a phone for an entire 5 days on Episode 4 of What’s Up With Us. Tune in and let us know what you think!
