Afraid to buy

"I was originally afraid to buy a smartphone - and slower to purchasing one - because I didn't want it to absorb too much of my focus. I was afraid that having always-on access to the web, social media, etc. would be a problem for me. Now that I have a smartphone, I have to be very intentional about how/when I use it, and catch myself if I default to using it to fill the gaps in between more intentional activities."
