I was telling some friends last week that I think the internet and my smart phone and the constant distraction the internet causes is making me stupid. Like I can't focus fully on what I am on. I do turn off the computer when I am done but then the phone is buzzing and dinging. I really think it is not a good thing for us to be pulled in so many directions.
So for myself I have decided to take a few days and not log on. This is my first time in four days to get on the computer. I have only used my phone to contact my kids and pin a sink we saw at Home Depot so I could remember it. My husband has been home and we have had such a good time being together and getting the Thanksgiving decor going.
In the future I think I will take a few days in a row where I do the same. It has been so good for my mind and I have felt right away the ability to totally focus again. Focus on what I am doing at that moment. I am not passing any judgment but just sharing something I have experienced. Something I need to do for me. So I shall take one more day and be back at it tomorrow to share some Thanksgiving cuties.
I really worry about the younger kids that may not be able to put the distractions down. Oh boy and I worry about us cause they will be the ones in charge some day. Let me know what you think.....
