Sourced from:https://cinnamonsunrise.com/blog/routines-matter-why-dropping-my-phone-led-to-my-life-unravelling/ In January I dropped my smartphone. It cracked the screen and rendered it unusable. Super irritating, but I don’t need my phone right? I don’t have a phone contract, and had bought my smartphone outright a couple of years ago.
