"Stop, Drop, & Be" Phone Technique

A technique to not be enslaved to your phone.

Stop drop and be is a simple

mindfulness technique you can use

in relationship to your phone.

In fact, it emerged out of my own

complicated relationship to my

phone, where I would find myself

waiting in line at a coffee shop or

in the grocery store and it would

be the first thing I would reach to.

In those moments, what I practice

doing would be stopping in my tracks,

noticing, oh, I'm reaching for my

phone to grab it, dropping my phone

back in my pocket, and just being.

Stop drop and be.

It's very simple, but it's often

these simple reminders that we

need to help us bring the practice

of mindfulness into our life.

So next time you're in a situation where

you want to maybe cover up the feeling of

waiting or boredom or feeling like, oh, I

need to do something because everyone else

is doing something, maybe challenge that.

Stop, drop, be.

Use it as an opportunity

for another mindful moment.

Thank you for your practice and take care.
