Is this a familiar scene in your household? I often find myself sitting on the couch with my laptop, phone by my side and sometimes even the television turned on though I might not even be watching it. Even as I write this, I've been stopping every now and then to check Instagram. Technology and social media are a big part of my life and I'm someone that's always connected. It's not only a hobby but it's part of my job as a Communications Manager as well.
Don't get me wrong, I'm a HUGE advocate for technology and social media - I think it's amazing! But lately I've been feeling as though I need to take a step back every now and then. I read two blog posts on this topic recently that really spoke to me. The first was by Naomi on Love Taza and the second by Christina on Profresh Style. Both are worth the read if you're feeling a little too dependent on technology, as I am at the moment.
A few days after reading those posts, I also watched an episode of Parks and Recreation where Tom has a bit of a breakdown when he's not allowed to use technology for a day and even makes an Iphone out of paper. While being absolutely hilarious, it also really made me think about how I would feel if I challenged myself to do the same. You can watch a really funny clip from the episode here.
What about you? Are you suffering from the same technology dependency as me?
