Yes, maybe this is one of the more innane ways to be a minimalist and one of the ways that has the least impact on the world as a whole, but it matters to be because the simplicity of it makes me feel more relaxed and organized and calm and it also is a visual reminder that I don’t want to use my phone for everything. I don’t want to have everything at my fingertips at all times. Honestly, it makes me stop and think a moment about whether I really want to be looking up that thing on my imdb app or my yelp app while I’m with friends and family. The simplicity is like a visual sticky note: ‘Hey, technology is always there for you, but that doesn’t mean you always need to be using it as a result.’
