Well that was an unintended and interesting experiment today. In getting ready to take our visitors out today I left my phone at home. I realized that I didn’t have it with me on our first stop. For the most part I did not miss it, in fact I noticed that my biggest concern was that it was indeed at home and not dropped and so lost somewhere (I had a leather version of Apple’s Wallet attached to the phone’s back, and so there was an added concern of the cards in the wallet). But at times I did notice a niggle, an itch for my phone. I also notice now the sense of relief and comfort at having it back in my orbit.

I have intentionally left my phone behind before, but I rarely have I forgotten it. In this day an age of awareness around people’s reliance and attachment to their phone, I was interested in just how I reacted to having unintentionally left it behind.
