This New Years we are making a firm Resolution to:
Every day at every turn, you see people staring at their smartphones in public while eating, walking and driving. Are they receiving urgent emails or texts? Most likely not. They (like us) are checking headlines, watching a show or sports, catching up on social media or playing the latest game. Smartphones are integrated in our lives and are a valuable tool, but for most of us it has become a habit to check phones almost constantly. So, we are suggesting a New Year’s Resolution of taking a break from your smartphone every day (and ALWAYS while driving).
We are NOT crazy, just suggesting a 15-minute period one to two times per day that the phone is off-limits. See what happens – maybe more face-to-face interaction or being more present.
We are up for the challenge, are you?
