It is far too easy to bite back boredom with a smartphone. Of course, is that the way you want to live your life? Constantly immersed in your social feed, email, text messaging, etc.?
Life should be lived. One way to do that is by being in the moment.
Put the phone away. Keep it in your pocket. Be aware of your surroundings. Forget about the “fear of missing out” and just be in the moment. Let each moment wash over you.
You can’t control everything and, of course, you have to pay attention to the important things. Still, allow yourself to find some inner peace in the quiet or in the boredom.
Keep your direction, but stay focused on the moment. Cherish these moments. Pay for experiences if you are so inclined. Concerts are a good example of a unique moment in time. Put your phone down and let the performance occur in front of you.
What a way to live your life.
