Lunch Exercise: Overcoming SAS (Smartphone Abandoment Syndrome)

Next time you take a lunch break, consider leaving your phone back in the office. Fuck “urgent” work e-mails,¬†texting, news, Facebook, etc… Take a total break from it all and and truly reclaim your lunch break. Just be with yourself for that half hour or an hour. Let your head go into the direction it would otherwise go without being drawn to inane updates and news. Let your eyes look at what they want to look around. At first, you might experience SAS anxiety – like something is missing, but once you overcome it, it will be very liberating. And if your lunch friends ask you why you don’t have your phone on you, tell them proudly: “Why should I?”

A lovely way to spend lunch time.
