Cell phones can make life much more convenient, but everyone can use a break from technology sometimes

Cell phones can make life
much more convenient,
but everyone can use a
break from technology sometimes

In today’s fast-paced world, people often feel like they need to be connected through some technology at all times. Look around when you’re out in public sometime, and count how many people are looking at or talking on their cell phones. It may be easier to count the people who aren’t using a phone.

Even if you have a job that requires you to carry a phone a lot of the time, it would likely do you some good to at least take a short daily break from having it on you. Oftentimes, it may do you some good to sit quietly somewhere and look around at the real world.

Have a real face-to-face conversation with someone you care about. Go to the park and play with your kids, without checking your email or Facebook on your phone every five minutes.  Sit quietly in your living room and read a chapter of a book with the phone turned off. You will probably find it very rejuvenating.

You do not need to be in contact with the rest of the technological world every minute of the day. Take time out every once in a while to just live life, without a phone in your hand or on your ear.
