It seems that more, and more people are becoming addicted to technology. It practically consumes their life. Many of us can not even imagine spending our days without some sort of technology. Their is everything from television, to computers, and cell phones. Our lives are actually built around technology. So how can you end your technology connection and really give yourself a chance to unwind and relax. You can pick one day where you apply the suggestions listed below. Or perhaps you just focus on following the tips below for just a part of each day.
Turn off the cell phone
Start by turning off your cell phone as soon as you arrive home. Some are so glued to their phones they find it difficult to even consider turning it off when they are at home. If you still have a house phone you can leave this for emergencies. Let all of your family and friends know that in order to reach you, they will have to call the house number. It may take some time for your friends and neighbors to get used to the idea of you not having your cell phone on, but eventually they will get used to it. You can also get your family involved and have them all turn off the cell phone as well. Some have found it best to place their cell phone in a box and leave it there until the next day. If you have everyone put their cell phones away you will be less likely to use your cell phone.
Unplug the television
Instead of just turning off the television, why not completely unplug it. This way you will not be tempted to turn it on for just a few minutes. Many don’t like the hassle of plugging something back in, and then plugging it back in. If you want to watch the news, or something then you can have a set time of day that you do this, but try to keep it limited to no more than thirty minutes.
Turn off the computer
Put the computer on standby or turn it off so that it is not burning a lot of electricity and you are not tempted to use it. Try leaving all of your work at work for a change and not worrying about it until the next day. Why not try returning to the days, when you leave your work at work, and focus on spending quality time with your family.
