    Mock my Nokia all you like – I’m happier since ditching my smartphone

    I was addicted to my smartphone, but withdrawing from social media has calmed my mind and made me a better real-life friend. I’m calmer, and the initial Candy Crush-­shaped void in my life has been filled.’ Photograph: Katherine Anne Rose for the Observer Towards the end of 2014 I was burned out, for a variety of reasons. My job at the time involved working in a busy open plan office, with constant interruptions and competing demands. Like most of my […]
