For one weekend, treat your phone like a phone – a useful device for making plans or calling your mom. When you go out, leave it at home. Find the restaurant or theater without Google Maps; order dinner without consulting Yelp. It will improve your relationships more than you can imagine, says Daniel Sieberg, a tech-industry veteran and author of The Digital Diet. "The more distracted you are, the more disconnected you are – from your own experience and from the people around you," Sieberg says.
