A Phone Fast

Those who know me know that I'm a pretty self-aware individual. And last week, this awareness told me that my technology addiction was hitting one of its cyclical peaks.

When I allow my phone-tied-to-the-hand addiction to get to cross into the danger zone, my resulting, poor behaviors are easy to spot: I become detached, I'm less able to connect with those I love, and I am dreadfully impatient.

So in an effort to practice what I preach, I spent the weekend in Switzerland (doing all these things - including that chocolate train!) with my sis, husband, and noooooo phone in sight.

It. Was. Glorious.

 

On a very related note, check out what Arianna Huffington created to help her employees detach from the office while on vacation. Truthfully, I'm a little conflicted on it; it sounds awfully inefficient for the sender. What do you think?

 

Photocred to my sister's iPhone; is it cheating if you're benefiting from someone else's technology? ;)
