Have you thought about how much time we spend using all these devices each day? I have to admit I feel somewhat embarrassed when people ask the question “how many hours a day do you spend on your computer or mobile device?”. The answer is too much! Now don’t get me wrong I have nothing against technology, in fact I’m a big supporter of it. My concern is that we are starting to become digital dummies. In other words, we are losing focus on what life is all about.
When was the last time you had a face to face conversation or walked outside to appreciate the beauty of this Earth? Sometimes I find myself scrolling through my news feed on Facebook, and I say to myself “just a few more minutes”. Five minutes, 10 minutes, and soon I look at the time and it’s already been a half hour. I feel like I need a straight jacket for my hands or maybe even a blindfold. The majority of my time is spent gaming online, not very productive. I know that I could be doing other stuff, but sometimes I just don’t have any motivation.
What I’m trying to say is that we could all use a break every now and then. Go do something social or active. Be creative, make very moment count!
