Put the phone down……for a minute.

I recall one occasion where I almost lost my iPhone. I wasn’t paying attention & left it in the computer lab at my job. Lucky a coworker found it and returned it to me. Another time I didn’t lose my phone but it froze and I couldn’t get it to function again. Fearing it was broken, I took it to a local Apple store where an employee did a simple move and reset it for me. Those moments remind me how we become so dependent on a small piece of technology that without it, we seem lost.

One of the only times when I didn’t feel connected to the phone is during travel & vacations. And that is only because I was in places where cell phone reception was unavailable, such as aboard a cruise ship. Or overseas in countries with sporadic reception unless I wanted to pay exorbitant roaming charges.

But how truthful and accurate is this video? We get so focused on tweeting, face booking & instagramming every moment of our lives, we sometimes forget to live in and enjoy the moment.

    Agreed. I saw this video earlier this week and it really does ring true. Sometimes you’re having a conversation with someone only to look up and find them face down with their phones. I was becoming an Instagram junkie but I’m remembering how to leave the phone alone and just, like you say, enjoy the moment.
