Do you have multiple cell phones or smart devices? Are you constantly checking Facebook and Instagram, and find it hard to get through a meaningful conversation without adding to your story?
Today’s technology is causing us to increasingly miss out on the valuable moments of our lives as we pass the hours with our faces buried in our smart phones, tablets, computers, and video games, documenting our every move through social media and shielding ourselves from the outside world, where real connections happen.
If you notice these mannerisms in yourself – or your friends & family, it may be worth committing to the National Day of Unplugging, a 24 hour period – running from sundown to sundown beginning March 4. Take this day to carve out precious time to unplug, relax, reflect, be active, visit the outdoors, and connect with loved ones.
