Spend More Time Thinking
Do you automatically look at your smartphone at the slightest lull in activity? Researchers discovered that people enjoy being immersed in their own thoughts instead of technology in a research experiment that asked them to make a choice not to pick up their device. Self-awareness is the key to overcoming the reflex to pick up the phone. The upside to spending time with your own thoughts is that you’ll soon be solving more problems, improving the creative parts of your mind, and making more decisions that lead to the life you want more quickly.
