Can you sit alone for 30 minutes without any technology and survive?
I was asked if I could sit alone for 30 minute without any technology, friends, family or reading material. Piece of cake! I went outside on my deck and sat in my beach chair and soaked in the sun. In the summer time I do this regularly, I really enjoy my alone time. While out there I thought about all the people who are addicted to technology and how hard this must be for them. You know those people….. you are out to dinner trying to have a nice conversation and they are checking their phone every minute or two…ugh! You might even be one of those people!
I use technology but I am happy to say that I am not addicted to it. I have Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram but really don’t post too much on them. I prefer to communicate the old fashion way, face to face. If I want my real friends (you can count them on two hands) to know something about me, I will tell them face to face or call them on the phone to talk with them. What I am missing is my music. I always have music playing in my house or when I am hanging outside in the sun.
I don’t feel like I am missing anything by not being connected to technology for a bit. And like I said in the beginning………..Piece of cake!
