Technology Society


Look outside your office building, those of you who are in one.  Everyone is walking around in their own little world.  They are on their cell phone.  They have earbuds on listening to who knows what; music, podcast, radio.  They are texting while walking running into things not paying attention to where they are going.  They even cross the street without looking for traffic.  It is surprising I have not heard of people being run over.  They all are zombies moving around the streets like in a science fiction movie.

Do these people know what they are missing?  They are not paying attention to what is around them.  Technology has turned us into a Zombie Society.  Most of us, me included on occasion, have fallen into this trap where we always need our cell phone, iPad, laptop in order to have access to up to the minute updates on Facebook, Twitter, blogs, news, security of our home, security of our children, and whatever else we keep track of.

Every now and then, we have to get back to nature.  Go outside take a walk.  Take your dogs to the park.  Take a road trip away from all this technology and just relax.  Don’t feel that you have to be connected every single waking moment for the rest of your life.  Take a moment of every day, slow down, and smell the roses.

    Amen. I don’t and won’t have a cell phone. Another dog… probably! Dogs need to go outside a lot and they are such terrific companions. I only spend time on the net a couple of times a day. The rest of the time I live. Being on the net is not living, it’s a lonely substitute.
    I do like Netflix, though… no commercials and I can get on my tv.

      Yes, I agree dogs are wonderful. I have two dogs. They are wonderful companions. I too have Netflix, I hate commercials. I find if watching regular TV with all the commercials I eat a lot more than I should. It is all those subtle food commercials that compel you to get up and get something to eat.
      Thanks for the comment and I hope you have a wonderful day.

    I made my own “no gadget hours”. For example, when I cook, I turn off my smartphone. It’s an ultimate “me” time. The same thing applies during my afternoon green-tea time. 😀

      That is a good idea. I am about to put my gadgets away for the night. I drink some tea and do some reading before I go to bed. Have a good day.

        Enjoy your tea! 😀
