How much time are you spending your life as a spectator?

Let’s talk about screen time. We seem to always be facing some sort of screen. We face screens on the computer at work. We face screens on the TV at home. We face screens on our phones. The irony that you are reading this on a screen right now is not lost on me. I mean, I created the photo and typed this post on multiple screens.

When you go to a concert or your kids play do you find yourself taking a video and watching the action through the screen instead of being there in the moment? How often do you go to a restaurant and see everyone at the table on their phones instead of talking to each other?
Just drive by a bus stop in the morning and watch the kids. The kids are all on their devices, have their earbuds in and are not saying a word to each other. How will they communicate with each other 5 or 10 years from now?

I don’t have the perfect solution, but I do have a suggestion to try. Turn off all of the screens and are you ready… do nothing. Yup. Nothing. How does that feel being there with yourself with no distractions? How long until the need to pick something up or turn something on is gnawing at you? Now, before you throw your hands up and give in take a few long, deep breaths. Start with 5 breaths. Tomorrow try 10. Give it a week or two and soon you might welcome those breaks. 📿 *
