A brilliant short film on youtube, 'Look Up' depicts my thoughts exactly on the matter. We're all so consumed with the world of social media that we're not really living, are we? By spending an hour on your phone a day, you're spending over 15 days a year fixed to the thing and in my opinion, missing out on life. As cheesy as it sounds, that time can be spent making memories and just experiencing the life you have before you! Whether this be learning something new, catching up with friends, or visiting a new place. If you're a regular reader of my blog you would know by now that I'm all for being in the present moment, and appreciating the simple things in life; which is why I say, don't live a passive life - go DO.
If going out locally, leave the phone at home!!
