Time to Unplug?
Time to Unplug?
What could we possibly need to unplug from?
Most everyone I know carries around a handheld device…cellphones! Here is what Widener University Professor Dwight DeWerth-Pallmeyer has to say about them:
“Everyone carries a computer in their pocket. Every time it vibrates or dings, you get this little dopamine rush that says, ‘I need to respond.'”
In addition, he says that due to cellphones, “There is a broader stretch of knowledge now because of access to information, but critical thinking is lost in the process. We know a little bit about everything now, but it is an inch deep. What we are missing is the depth of thought. There is a lack of self reflection that goes on.There is a difference between my nine-word tweet and my sitting down in a room and talking with you.”
How right he is!! I have found I am addicted to my cellphone. So much so, that I now plan times when I put it down and step away from it. One of those times are when I am in the barn.
Being in the barn and with the animals is the antidote to cellphone distraction. I make the choice to pull the plug on the device, so I can plug into something much more wonderful…the energy and love of the animals. The satisfaction which comes from care-taking. And, the reminder to be and stay in the present moment.
Do YOU need to be reminded of such things!?We have SO MANY OPTIONS for you! All to aid in unplugging and plugging back into a much more spectacular life.
