    I COULD NOT AGREE MORE!!! (caps for emphasis) What has become of us? My children text good night from across the house (and the house isn’t that large), I get a thank you via mass email, we sit next to each other at the dinner table but everyone is engrossed with their own smart phone, our sense of worth is tied to pictures that strangers post on Pinterest. It is all self selecting. Do you think your neighbor or cousin will post a picture of their kid having a tantrum at their party? No, but does that mean that it didn’t happen? The cake may look beautiful, but they served the same heat and serve snacks from Costco that you did. We have lost ourselves in technology and the stress is killing us. I look at the five items on the practical guide above and am pleased to see that I took advantage of all 5 this weekend. What a Happy Mother’s Day it was afterall!

      Good work!

      Isn’t it amazing the comfort that some people find in being constantly connected? Yet, maintaining a social media profile can be so exhausting! Taking a break to disconnect is good on a variety of levels.

      For good practice, my friends and I vow to not look at our phones when we go out to lunch or dinner. Even if it is forced, it is relaxing to take a break from emails, photos, status and tweets.
