Take a technology break.
Unplug it. Turn it completely off. Tuck it away. Do whatever you need to do to step away and give yourself a technology break.
We are constantly inundated with information - news, pictures of friends, texts, random people dancing like fools, music, emails, and the list goes on. Our attention spans seem to be getting shorter and shorter.
Plus - so much of what is out there is negative - and that just fills our brains and hearts, making it harder to push through and rise above.
Did you know? Studies have shown that higher levels of screen time have been linked to an increased risk of depression and lower well-being.
You get to choose the length of time, but I would suggest a few hours at a time. For example, if you want to make sure you are present and engaged with your family, take a break from 5-8:00 p.m. every night.
If you want to take it to the next level, break away for a day or more! Take note of how it affects your attitude and demeanor. You might be surprised at how freeing it actually feels!
