So the talented actor/director/awesome man, Matthew Gray Gubler posted his 2013 challenge to fans on his tumblr: to one day a week, leave home without your cellphone. I accepted, and have done this the past few weeks, and let me tell you it’s as awesome as he makes out.
The other night while walking in the snow I left my phone at home and immediately stopped worrying about whether I had a text, facebook notification, or whatever. My mind was thinking about other things than checking up webcomics and news feeds. I was happier.
So here’s my challenge to you-take his challenge. Whether it’s a walk around your area, to the shops, or a hike. Leave you phone and see if it makes a difference to you. It might not, but I reckon it probably will, and you’ll probably like it.
Let me know in the comments if you’ve done it and how it went!
