Project: NOMOFOMOSLOMO

I’m prepared to turn my smartphone over to vitaminwater for the next 365 days.

vitaminwater wants to know how I would use my year if I took a break from my smartphone.

The short answer? I don't know.

As a modern-day explorer and an early adopter of all things tech, this is a monumental challenge.

Without my smartphone to comfort me when I feel bored or awkward, I'll be forced to engage with those around me and support conversation with… wait for it... real people!

I can't continue to remain hidden behind the embracing glow of my smartphone’s display, shut off from the world around me. I need to make a stand!

Will this challenge be the path to enlightenment? Will it bring value and clarity to my life? Or will I be left broken, hopelessly frustrated? Is this even possible in today’s society?

I don't know, but it'll be entertaining to watch me find out!

Long story short, I never shy away from a worthwhile challenge. I'm the kind of individual that has to continually be searching for new adventures. Need proof? Just check out my Walter Mitty Resume. 

The scariest part of this contest is that we're having our first child this year and connecting to my family in this new way (without the smartphone) will be a challenge. But it's also a wonderful opportunity for me to investigate what I really value in life.

 

 

Up for the challenge?

If you’re like me, you’re fed up with the norm and you want to take a stand against the routine. Bully! I knew I was in good company!

Join the movement. Live with purpose.

What the heck does NOMOFOMOSLOMO mean?

You mean it’s not obvious?

NOMOFOMOSLOMO represents those that are concerned no more with the fear of missing out and who have a desire to live slower, enjoying the moment.
