Recently, I’ve been inspired to disconnect from electronics. For a little while at least.
This past weekend alone, I spent over 12 hours staring at various screens,and it was draining. No matter how much I tried to relax and take a break, the screens were always there to lure me back in.
Even now, I’m using my phone to write this very post.
The first thing I do in the morning? Check my phone.
Going to bed? Check my phone.
Free time? Usually on my phone or computer.
It feels like we as a society are glued to our screens, without realizing the repercussions. Instead of going to a library to look something up, we quickly type it into a search engine to avoid making any effort to try.
Human interaction? Why do we need that when we have the Internet to occupy our time?
Now I know this all sounds harsh, but when you really think about it, maybe harsh is the wake-up call we need to get away from our electronics and self-reflect.
But before I disconnect, let me just Google ” best ways to self-reflect”.
