I'm unplugging myself today and here's why:
I need a day without a migraine
I need a day where I'm not exposed to people over-sharing
I need to make real connections
I find it astounding how much we rely on our devices. From checking e-mails on the go to seeing too many passive-aggressive tweets, it's too much. Although I love my offline life even though I hardly give it enough time or attention and for some reason become anxious if I am not near my phone or computer. Even if I'm with a group of friends, I always have a burning feeling that I'm missing out on something online - and in reality I'm missing out on spending time with real people and having quality conversation.
This Ted Talk gets it very right
How often do you unplug?
