I’m going to use my music hero Sturgill Simpson to get up on my phone soap box for a second.
“All too busy looking down at our phone
Our egos begging for food like a dog from our feed
Refreshing obsessively til our eyes start to bleed
Serve up distractions and we eat them with fries”
Study: Ignoring People for Phones Is the New Normal from The Atlantic. Is there anyway we can stop this? I know I have been guilty of hiding in my little phone world. I am trying to build awareness of this habit. Just in myself to start – asking your kid in 2016 to put down a mobile device can be like asking them to cut off their hand. It’s great to have curiosity about the world, information pills but I know I have been guilty of avoiding the real world to sink into my own little scroll-a-thon. There’s a whole world out there. It’s better to experience it than to look for free wi-fi or click on another Buzzfeed list.
So we have done some heavy duty CrossFit this week. Fran, more about Elizabeth, drugs gymnastics, short time domain (Fran), and longer time domains (DU/BJ/KB). So what are we missing? Going heavy of course!
