Today’s tip to simplify your life is:
10. Turn off your cellphone. A ringing cell-phone is not conducive to intimate conversation or a dreamy first date. Be present.
I don’t know about you, but my cell phone is my lifeline basically. I don’t have a land line so it’s my only phone source. I have a Droid X smartphone, so it is also my internet/tv/games/gps source as well. I have learned to turn it on vibrate/silent when I’m going to bed, since I have blogging buddies all over the globe who post at different times, sending an email alert to my phone. Also, if I am on a “dreamy first date”, or any date, I also turn it on silent. Same with work, so I”m not disturbing my co-workers. The only time my phone is actually turned off is when I’m flying and the pilot tells you to turn your phones off during the flight. I am never without my phone, with 3 exceptions, when I was in Ukraine, England, and Africa. Obviously, I had no service there, so I left my phone at home.
Do you turn your phone off? Are you ever without it?
