AND…I’d love to show this link to a great article…and a 2nd article…and a marvelous 8-Min You Tube Video!
I own one…I use it…quite a bit. But I find myself working harder than ever to moderate my usage of my smart phone than ever before.
Our children are using smart phones at younger ages…and relying on them heavier as they grow than any other generation. We are hooked!
We cant put them down. We are not looking at each other in the face…eye to eye…having interpersonal conversations as much as we used to.
We text rather than talk…we email rather than converse…we post rather than chat. It’s not personal.
Because of this, we continue to move less than any other time in history. We crave a cyber world because it is more perfect.
By no means am I suggesting to not use them. They are only getting more popular. But Moderate them…and make sure you and your family Keep Moving!
Put them down more…turn them off more…have rules about usage like not at the dinner table…and perhaps they are only used by children after a certain amount of physical movement or fitness is accomplished each day.
