Carry a book instead of your phone

Liked Daydreaming is better than doomscrolling (

Anna carries a book around the house the same way the rest of us carry our phones. She reads it in those same moments when the rest of us reach for the comfort of our black mirror.

I already read a lot, but like this idea of replacing the phone as my go-to distraction around the house with a book.

Great idea. I carry my e-reader and notebook everywhere I go to read or write. I also keep a few paper books in my car as backup for stuff to read hee hee.
