Is it just me or is everyone on their phone?
Everywhere I look lately, people are head down, staring at their phones. When they’re alone or with people. At restaurants, beaches, and malls. On sidewalks, bikes and mountaintops. Now that I’ve noticed this, I can’t stop thinking about it. I mean, it’s crazy…isn’t it?
The other day, I was driving through the park with my teenage daughter and I spotted four different groups of people – two groups of three and two groups of two – and EVERY one of them was on their phone! I pointed it out to my daughter, and she shrugged her shoulders and went back to scrolling through Instagram.
I’m sometimes (ok, often) guilty of this myself and I’d really like to change that. I found these articles about getting off your phone and thought they might be helpful for you, too.
