The universe is a spot that is funny. I occasionally find myself getting signs and hints about the oddest things. Most recently, this occurred to myself last Sunday morning once i came across an article about “Divorce.” No, not that type of divorce… It was about how technology, especially so called “smart phones” intervene in our daily lives and relationships.
The author isn’t looking to return to 1980. The post wo n’t be paraphrased by me – but if you discover that your other loved ones, you, your children or your coworkers are overly addicted to their smart phones, you’ll appreciate the post and find it thought provoking.
For myself, the post resonated because most folks in my personal life appear to spend an excessive amount of time on their mobiles. My husband and I’ve discussed this issue more than several times, as we (yes the author also!) Especially, for myself, I recently discovered that I’ve taken to assessing the time on my cellphone since I don’t wear a watch. Over the last few weeks, I’ve started to wear my watch to try and address this reason to take a look at my cellphone. Is not it fascinating how fast mobiles that didn’t exist ten years past are now such a huge (and consuming) part of our daily lives?
Is your smart phone the first thing? But do you subsequently begin checking out your e-mail, Facebook, etc.? Perhaps you have thought about how long you waste daily on your “smart phone”?
I’m proposing that we reign in this habit. That way, every time a text or e-mail comes through you will not be affected. Place after a particular time at night.
Knowledge is actually the ideal place to begin. As we nurture ourselves and our lives, myself understand that we will all gain from more closeness, more link, and dialogue.
Over the the next couple of weeks myself challenge you to be aware of your smart phone behaviour. See the “emptiness” and how tempting it’s to pick up that telephone. And remember to embrace more, kiss more, join more, discuss more, etc. Let us all commit to living our lives rather than becoming hooked into, or reading about, someone.
I am in, are you?
