If you could unplug for a day could you? Americans, and myself seem to be addicted to technology. Cell phones, the internet, and their computers seem to rule our daily life. I ask myself when did a computer replace human contact and emotion.
I donít know if you have asked yourself this? But if you could unplug yourself from technology for even just a day, could you? My day seems to be the same. I wake up check my e-mail. Then I visit various websites. Follow that by, me grabbing my cell phone and leaving for work. Facebook, twitter, MySpace, e-mail. They are all responsible for corrupting daily living.
What if we just left it all behind for a day? What about a week? Think about all the things you would get to see and notice. Instead of checking your friends Facebook page. Why not call them and simply say, hey how you are? We havenít talked in a while, want to get lunch and catch up?
I think people need to stop and slowdown for a bit and just bring back the human contact into their daily lives.
