SIMPLIFY YOUR PHONE LIFE
Now, through our smartphones, we have access to almost any information, anytime, anywhere. But being connected 24/7 can be both a blessing and a curse. So, what should we do? Chen shares the following:
In a connected society, we can evaluate how to use our gadgets in a healthy and constructive way as well as how to combat behaviors that are affecting our health and our relationships.
While there were times that I also felt like throwing my phone into the ocean, I know we can gain control by setting limits. Here’s an example:
Set apart a room in their homes where technology is completely forbidden so they can rest or interact with each other without digital distraction. “No cell phones in this room” would be the new equivalent of “Please take of your shoes before entering.”
Our phones are just tools. It should help us live better lives. If our gadget is complicating or adding stress to our life (ex: by being connected to social networks or work all the time), then we should start redefining our use of it.
How about you? Do you have any good practices when it comes to using your phone? Feel free to share. Thanks! -Danny
An important message. Definitely working some of these ideas into one of my presentations.
I like the equivalence of taking off your shoes — necessary and practical built objects we carry (wear) that touch the ground — and phones — necessary and practical objects we carry to touch the world.
