  1. Nonsense you write, I lived for a year until the seventh of October without a smartphone. Just a brick with a flashlight and bells. This does not give anything positive – the alarm clock is ugly and very loud, you can't take a picture of tasks, you can't take a picture of any number type information at all, you have to stand and rewrite any of them. Just do not take a picture when some important event, in the minibus you listen to Oleg Gazmanov and Babkin's hubbub. In the subway, you look at a drug addict who is running snot and drooling in his trip, and others don't care about him, or carefully keep your eyes on the floor so as not to meet this strange Tajik…

  2. I flew to rest without a smartphone, with a regular phone. You go through five stages, just like before you die, then you start to forget about it. All week of rest I slept 23-9, as I returned home again knocked down the regime.

  3. Productivity increases several times(and as a result, the mood).

    For example, when I wake up and then view all the important news and messages(even if it may take a minute), I find myself in a completely untidy state and spend about 50 minutes on a standard set of tasks(wash, shower, cook food).
    In the case when I do not pick up the phone before completing the above tasks, I fit in 15-20 minutes.
    213 hours of free time a year can be earned just from this.

  4. I think it's important to make a clarification: a phone without Internet access is good, but a phone with Internet access is even better.
    Speaking of the standard set, it simply contains functions that were previously “managed” by individual items: a flashlight, a gallery, a contact list, games, a calculator, an alarm clock, books, a camera, and so on. Just having it all at hand increases your productivity.
    A phone with Internet access is a completely different story. It is unlikely that you will accidentally sit in the calculator for three hours. And it also means that you're having an exciting time. But the easy availability of any information and the ability to freely communicate with people from anywhere in the country and even the world are devalued precisely because of the ease of receiving and implementing it. Therefore, answering the second question, your health is unlikely to improve if you actively used the phone (Internet) to meet the need for communication and information. Withdrawal, I believe, is quite natural in this case.
    I do not think that the decrease in productivity that takes place depends on the phone: a person who does not know how to properly manage their time, whether in the 21st century or in the 18th, would spend such a valuable resource on useless activities.
    And we come to the conclusion that a person's productivity does not depend on the phone. A person's productivity depends on the presence or absence of the skill to plan the day and allocate their time. No amount of feisty technological progress can ruin your life if you have the aforementioned skill and know how to use modern goods for their intended purpose.

  5. It seems to me that the rejection of the phone as a whole should not be particularly long, it will be more productive if you need to focus on a specific goal at the moment, without being distracted by mail/social networks/videos and photos in insta/etc. Productivity itself is improved only by motivation, and without it, even if you give up the phone, you will find something to do, just not to do really important things.�

    Well-being is stifled by a good night's sleep, a proper diet, and the impact of positive emotions. If some criteria are violated because of the phone number-yes, maybe abandoning it will somehow improve the condition.

    For me, the phone has too many features to give up. Here I read books, translate texts, make presentations, communicate with people, and do many other things that almost everyone does with their phone nowadays.�

    I think that to increase your own productivity, you should give up social networks.networks, not from the phone as a whole. This works really well (tested by experience), unless, of course, you are very dependent on communicating with people on the other side of the screen.

  6. When you find yourself without a virtual world in your hand, you are thrown into the real one, and lo and behold, like a veil from your eyes-you immediately see how much people around you are mired in their favorite gadgets, you see how they are bathed in their addiction. Yes, and at the very first couple of observed withdrawal. But after two days, you feel an extraordinary lightness, immediately there is a lot of extra time, food becomes tastier, work is more pleasant, life is more interesting, well-being, sleep, and so on . It's good to live without a phone.) I advise you all

  7. A year ago I went with an old Samsung 2013, because its broken. Even though I consider myself a phone addict, I barely noticed the difference. Only infuriated that the photographed schedule can not always be recognized))

  8. I don't think productivity depends on phones. A phone, just like a tablet, laptop, or computer, is primarily a tool. And very versatile. It helps a person a lot if used correctly, but many phones are abused, and this already wastes a lot of time and effort. Take, for example, any medication. If it is abused, it will also be harmful, not beneficial. It's the same with your phone. “All problems are not in the surrounding objects, they are in the human mind.”

  9. Without a phone, of course, a person is resting. He has time for both family and friends. Right now, children don't even have a kindergarten, “Technology”))It's very sad to watch all this. So I want to say to parents, ” Don't take away your children's childhood, please.”. 3 months did not use the phone at all, so what? I've restored the mode I knocked down. I go to bed early, wake up in the morning, and start watching TV. In general, in the future I plan to use only a flashlight, but why? A good option.)

  10. It depends on what “changing” means.
    It depends on how you use it.
    It depends on the phone number.
    It depends on how you use it when you start limiting yourself to using it.

    If you are looking for information on how not to become addicted to gadgets and how to make your relationship with your smartphone (and with the Internet) healthier and more conscious, I recommend looking for information under the tag # mediasketism

    Here's some cool material on this topic http://www.lookatme.ru/mag/live/interweb/198729-mediasketizm

    As for personal experience, I put my phone on airplane mode an hour and a half before bedtime. And I try not to check for updates in social networks.there is no mail either late at night or early in the morning. I became calmer, slept better, became less stuck, and became more focused and focused on my tasks.

  11. True story.

    At the end of the eighth grade, I broke my relatively new smartphone, which is why I had to switch to a flashlight for a while. Fortunately, summer came, and the functionality that the flashlight provided-to call-was enough. Oddly enough, I found an alternative to social networks and other time-consuming apps in “work”. It was hard to call it a job. However, there were goals and tasks that I had to learn the solutions to. The phone, the image of which is ingrained in our consciousness, no matter how stupid it may sound, took a lot of time and effort.

    As a profit, I earned about $ 150 in a week, paid for the Internet, bought new sneakers, and asked my parents to buy me a normal phone with which I could simplify school classes.

  12. Before the advent of mobile phones, people were either talking or thinking about something when they were in queues or on public transport, or in any situation where there was nothing to do but wait . People have become less sociable and think less often . When my phone broke down and I was in no hurry to buy a new one ,I noticed that I was often the first to start diologists and thought more. When I first got my phone, I didn't use it in public places or when I went for a walk , so as not to become addicted, but now I've given up on all this, and I don't take my phone out of my hands for days on end .

  13. I won't say anything about how I feel, but I can share the results of a random unplanned experiment that happened to me.
    Once in my freshman year, when classes started at eight, I would get up at 6: 30 and be late, even though it was about a 10-15-minute drive to the university. Then I moved in with a guy who didn't have a router and lived about forty minutes away… And she arrived on time, waking up at the same time.
    Now I know that the phone takes about 20 minutes of my time in the morning. This is caused not only by addiction, but also by the desire to delay the moment of getting out of bed. During the day, during work and school, I break off every half hour to scroll through the feed, even if I know that there will be nothing interesting there.
    And so, presumably, for every person. How much time is wasted and how much useful things could be done for it, calculate for yourself. 🙂
    In general, I advise you to personally check, limiting the time on the gadget.

  14. Well, your health is likely to worsen, as you will immediately feel the lack of a gadget that you are so used to. If you communicate with people on social networks or often talk on the phone, you will start to feel a sharp lack of communication.
    And it's hard to say anything about productivity, it depends on your type of activity, and in our time the phone is simply necessary. On the other hand you find time for other small activities and start thinking more often
