*reposted from my fam blog.
Lately, I have been finding myself on my phone. A lot.
I feel like I'm always writing back to emails, checking blogs, texting, or whatever else all through the day.
I love that I have all of those things right at my fingertips. What I don't love? The fact that it's so easy to just "check something real quick", but then end up on my phone looking around way longer than I needed to be in the first place.
So...I decided that my phrase for the year would be "be present". This phrase applies to so many areas in my life. I feel like I show up to things and participate, but I'm never fully there because I always need to "check just one little thing" on my phone. Been there before? Tell me it's not just me?
I've noticed this happening more and more. So...I decided to make a little screen saver for my phone that says "be present"...That way, when I'm on the ground playing with El and get the urge to check my phone, my phrase for the year will be right there in my face and hopefully I'll decide to be more present in what I'm doing, instead of checking my phone.
And, I also decided to put it on this here blog so that you can use it, if you'd like.
And, here's just the plain chevron, if you don't like the whole phrase thang.
Don't know how to use a wallpaper on your phone? Easy! Just double click the picture you want to use and then choose "save image"
If "save image" doesn't show up after you double click, just take a screen shot of the image you want to use (click the top button and the middle button at the same time, like in the image below).
After that, go to your pictures on your phone and the image you chose (or screen shot) should be in there. Just click on the picture to view it.
Theeen click the little icon that has the arrow coming out of a box.
And click on "use as wallpaper"
After that, you'll just want to scale the image to fit your screen and click "set".
Then, it'll pull up a menu like this where you can choose where to put the image.
I decided to put the one with words as my lock screen and the plain chevron as my home screen, but I mean...You can use them however you want. It's your phone, after all.
