In today’s digital age, it’s incredibly easy to fall into the vortex of our smartphones. You start by checking a single notification, and before you know it, you’ve lost four hours scrolling through social media, reading news articles, and diving into the never-ending world of online videos. However, there’s a growing tribe of individuals seeking a different kind of screen-time balance. Take this legend listener for instance. She has cultivated a practice that many might find challenging in this era of constant connectivity: watching TV without her phone within arm’s reach. By doing so, she not only immerses herself fully in the cinematic experience but also reclaims those precious hours that would otherwise be lost in the depths of the phone screen. Such intentional practices remind us that sometimes, unplugging can lead to a richer, more mindful entertainment experience.
