3 WAYS TO DISCONNECT FROM YOUR DIGITAL DEVICES
Current research estimates the average American spends more than half of their waking life staring at a screen.
Learning to unplug is vital, but it’s also hard to deny the benefits we gain from our devices.
In a world where modern day conveniences are at the touch of a finger, is it possible to strike a balance between connectivity and consciousness?
Here’s the harsh truth.
The negative psychological, social and cultural impact is real. Our ability to stay balanced in this time of technological growth and create healthy relationships with our digital devices, will determine the future of humanity.
So it’s not a matter of choice. Things NEED to change for us to feel more balanced, whole and connected.
No matter how important your phone is to your work and life we need to start developing a new social etiquette and raising awareness around harmful habits while sharing the importance of mindfulness.
The problem isn’t the gadgets. It’s our dependency to them.
And when I did 11 days no phone COLD-TURKEY, I learned a lot about my dependency to my phone. But also why integrating back to using my digital devices was more challenging than being without it.
The real obstacle is finding the right balance for ourselves, creating firm boundaries with our children and educating them on the harmful effects of too much screen time on their developing brain and lifestyle as they grow up.
