i am starting this month feeling completely wiped out.
the other day i was waiting in the check out line at the grocery...staring into space, and eves dropping on the ladies conversation in front of me..it really got me thinking.
here's how it went:
lady #1: "i am completely technology free, i have gotten rid of my laptop, no smart phone, i have a real basic cell phone, i cant text....and i feel so free!"
lady #2: "really you dont feel in a panic, or that you are missing something without a cell phone that has total access"
lady #1: "its like i have stepped back in time"
i had to deal with comcast this week fixing our home internet because its was moving as fast as dial up, my cell phone gets the worst reception, my iphone is slow as molasses and i cant figure out how to clear a ton of photos off, oh and i tripped on the sidewalk as i was texting and walking the dog at the same time and i think my eyesight is going from staring at screens within a foot of our face (when was the last time you stared out for miles and miles all day long).....all i can think about is that this panic to be FAST, IMMEDIATE, has me with a headache and feeling distracted from just being.
here is a really interesting article i read awhile ago, about having an unplugged home, going on a technology detox, and today is the National day of unpplugging, join the movement here!
can you unplug?
do you have any tips?
