Boredom and Phones

In case you haven’t noticed, our culture uses our phones quite a bit. Call it an addiction. Call it whatever you want, but ultimately, I’d argue that the reason we spend so much time on our phones is because our lives are often very uninteresting.

When you’re hiking in the mountains, meeting with clients, digging into intense projects, building a sandcastle on the beach, or having meaningful conversations with your favorite people, you probably aren’t very tempted to use your phone.

So do more of those things. Do more interesting, fun, exciting, and challenging things. The more of those you do, the less interesting Facebook will become.
