As individuals living in the 21st Century, it takes a certain amount of will power to separate ourselves from our precious phones and mobile devices. However, it is important to try our hardest to do so for a bit every day, or else all the beautiful people, nature, and opportunities right in front of us will pass by and we won’t even notice.
According to the Website Magazine, “the average 21 year old has spent 5,000 hours playing video games, sent 250,000 emails, instant messages and text messages, and has spent 10,000 hours on a mobile phone alone.” Is this you?
Challenge yourself. Tell yourself that you will spend all of Sunday without checking your emails, or going on any social media platforms. Might not be easy, but it might be worth it at the end of the day!
Also, with Summer A coming to a close next week, plan some activities that do not require any technological devices.
Enjoy the world around you!
