You do have the strength!

Ok now I have a message for all Jews: please don’t use social media, or any of these sitra achra things!! Study Torah instead. Also, Hashem loves you. May we all reach the highest level for our souls possible in this lifetime!

Well done

I was also on a similar journey at one point and decided to get a flip phone. But having a few thousand contacts i ran into a problem since the flip phone could only handle 500 or so. Also there is no mechanism to transfer them immediately. And i wasn’t about to enter each one manually… Then i heard about the LIGHT PHONE thelightphone.com It’s a talk and text only. No apps no internet surfing. But it is managed via a dashboard. And as such all one’scontacts can be uploaded. It’s been ordered and is pending shipping. I look forward… Read more »

I had a similar journey.
I had the filtering company “Gentech” set up my iPhone so that there is no browser and no social media.

My life has been so much better, more successful, and productive ever since!

I recommend reading a short book “How to break up with your smartphone” available on Amazon for just $11

Success to all with your personal journey!

So true

This is something we all need to hear, we all waste too much Precious time on our smartphones.

You are amazing!!!!!
May 7, 2021 3:20 pm

You are inspiring me to put my phone away every evening when my kids need my attention. It is so addictive and the message to my kids is my phone is way more important then you are.

Agree as a mom I want to stop

But I feel it also saves me much time to have a smartphone,but I wish I had the right balance- use at set times of day not all the time

So amazing!

I really commend you for doing this! I personally experience that freedom too whenever I put away my smart phone. People are realizing this and are doing the switch.
Good for you!
So amazing that your sharing!
