It’s curious how the smartphone, even if used slightly, can sometimes make you dumb.
If you think about it, when you use a smartphone for playing, navigating socials, etc, the relatively smaller screen forces you to entirely focus your attention on it.
An extreme focus that looks and works like a magnet and that clears up any spontaneous thoughts from your mind while using it.
I’m not denying its usefulness, but as with any tool, we should be aware of the consequences.
Reducing its usage when we need creativity or ideas might help you, if that’s what you’re after.
