All of the techy capabilities we have now-a-days are amazing &, of course, I love the blogging community & other social media like Facebook. When we are here, let’s be here. Let’s share recipes & ideas about lifestyle, health, fitness & whatever else suits our fancy. Let’s be engaged in active discussions, make friends & enrich each others life though we may never meet.
When we aren’t here though, let’s be wherever it is we are. Go for a nice walk & leave your phone behind — & stop texting when you are with your friend at the coffee shop or on a date for goodness sake! Facebook won’t collapse if you don’t check it every hour. You don’t have to Tweet every thought. Conquering Angry Birds won’t make us like you more. 😉
Connect with someone face to face, with nature or simply with yourself.

Adbuster dares you to unplug & see what happens. I challenge us all to step back & evaluate our digital “addictions”. I will be completely unplugged part of this week [though I have a short video & workout scheduled to post tomorrow]. You don’t have to do an extreme digital detox & swear it all off; determine the permanent changes you could make for a happier, healthier, more connected you.
