Simon says he's much happier after giving up this 1 thing for 10 months.

June 4, 2018

Perhaps the surliest man on television has revealed the one thing he's done that has really changed his life. Ten months ago, he put away his mobile phone and hasn't looked at it since.

Simon Cowell says it's "a very strange experience but it really is good for you and it has absolutely made me happier." He describes being much more focused and having more awareness of the people around him. And he has no plans to pick up his phone again any time soon.

He's not the only celeb to eschew the smartphone. Chris Pine has a flip phone and Vince Vaughan doesn't carry one at all

Do you feel tethered to your phone, or have separation anxiety when you realize you've forgotten it at home? Seems like most people do. But how great would it be to have better focus and feel more peaceful in everyday life. It's tempting, right. How long could you go without your phone?
