Get Back To Life

by admin on September 19, 2014

I was listening to podcast Episode 22 from Happy Mitten Games and a part of it really struck me in talking about how technology has caused us as a society to kind of check out of life. The things around you that you miss because you are staring at your phone. Your kids saying, “dad, dad, dad” while you just keep staring at your phone (I don’t do this btw).

It reminds me of this poignant spoken word video –

And it’s not just how we relate to our children with our phones in our hands. It’s how we relate to other people. Instead of chatting with the person next to us in line, or on the bus, or at a gettogether we stare at our phones and ignore the life around us.

It did make me take a look at my own life and realize that I want to make a change. I want to put my phone down and enjoy life more.

I want to get back to life.
