It seems that more and more gadgets we have all are mentioned as being able to relieve our stress by keeping us the latest, increasingly depressed we have become. People walked out of their home on their cellphone, they were driving while checking their emails, and walking down the road while sending a message to someone.
You know, something can be said for not knowing everything now. Isn’t it fun to walk on the road to your local store and really watch where you go? Take time to see trees, insects, and birds when you leave? Able to drive in your car and enjoy the scenery, it’s really fun that we think of trivial. Sometimes we try to talk to one person while sending someone else’s text. Going is times when you have a person’s attention that is not divided, and entering the age when our lives have become a multitasking session after another.
Detime from the grid from time to time can be very emphasized, unless you start emphasizing don’t know. There are two things we need to do to live with low technology in this high-tech world.
1. Don’t get stuck in the hype. You don’t need to update at any time. Believe it or not, the technology we have can last for years, and most of the time, our needs have not changed dramfter to ensure the latest technology.
2. Understanding that there are, and will always be, something better than what you have, so satisfied with what you have, and don’t focus on what you don’t have.
We wake up in the morning and check our smart phones and or tablets before we talk to our important people. We can send fast emails, check the weather and news before we say “hey” to our partners. In the past there was time to talk before we left home, but now the only conversation we hear is “I’m late, have to go.”
This high-tech society must have its advantages, and there are some technologies that really make life for life, however, all these technologies come at prices. Instead of connecting one, we finally connected one at three, or one at five, because we tried to connect to everything and everyone at once.
We cannot escape from this high-tech community where we live, and we don’t have to try, but what we have to try to do is know which technologies we need and that we don’t do. Let’s stay connected with our family and friends, but don’t loose excitement to enjoy life. Let’s control our technology, instead of our technology controls us. Let’s enjoy the sun, rain, wind, because we also enjoy the people we love, and the gadget that keeps us connected. Let’s try understanding which technology gadgets will give us a balance that will really enable us to become a low technology in the world of high technology.
