I’ve just returned from 14 days ‘off grid’ – no internet and no cell coverage – and guess what, I survived!
In fact I didn’t miss it at all.
The first few days I did missed the football results (and not keeping up with the transfer window was also tough) but even that ceased to be an issue.
I was outside, in the fresh air, doing manual work. It was great.
Now I’m back home, I’m online again with work, book launch, football and watching Netflix.
You could say it was only a couple of weeks and that the sun was shining but in all honesty, being outside doing physical work beats technology for me.
Let’s put things into perspective. If we lost the internet, our species would evolve and carry on. It is just a passing phase on our long journey.
