You know what - I actually love this. I wish I was able to be without a phone for a whole entire year. The reason why Ed went without is because he said it's stressful. "I still don't have a phone number," Ed says. "I bought an iPad and I just work off of email. It's so much less stress" 

I can totally see his point! I am stressed out when I wake up in the morning and all I see is message after message and loads of emails. 

I think sometimes think that phones complicate things. Glad to see Ed was able to go off the grid and just relax for a whole entire year.
