Did you know that there’s been a sharp uptick in posture problems and neck pain because people are so focused on their phones? We love a good app as much as the next person, but there comes a time when you need to put down your mobile devices and get back in touch with the world around you. And that’s what this thoughtful gift is all about.
Goodbye Phone, Hello World features a whopping 60 suggestions for how the reader can kick tech to the curb (if only temporarily) and reconnect to joy. Each activity is chosen, and in some cases designed from scratch, to maximize happiness and interaction. They’re creative, they’ll kick off conversations (with nary an emoji in sight), and they’ll remind you how great things like friendship, food, music, books, art, and nature can be when you’re not experiencing them through a tiny screen.
If you know someone who spends the majority of their day with their nose buried in an app or scrolling social media, this is the book for them. After all, what better gift is there than giving someone a chance to recapture their life, reclaim their time, and remember what living amongst actual people is all about?
