It's our all-knowing, life-optimizing friend who lives in our pocket. And just like with all friends, sometimes we need some space. But this can be hard to come by- you put your phone in a drawer but there is the tablet on the dresser, the laptop on the bed and the TV on the wall. Sometimes we need to practice self-discipline and truly unplug.
Here are some things that aren't so ambitious as reading a book, but will still help you to find some peace of mind and pleasure away from the internet.
It doesn't matter if you've got 20 minutes, 2 hours or 2 days, every chunk of time is just as valuable as the next. Technology is often a crutch that let's us escape from our own thoughts and live through the memes of the day; in this way, being away from your phone and alone with your thoughts is an amazing refresher. Call our office in Milpitas today and let's start finding time to go unplugged!
