Why are we all so technology obsessed? We have been labelled the 'technology generation'. We're getting more and more reliant on technology; but how far is to far?
Google maps, social networking, iPhones; we've grown up with it. But is technology stopping us from really living? Is social networking making us actually less social? Instead of communicating we are becoming increasingly dependent on the latest tech to entertain us. I'm no different.
I've realised lately that I need to stop using my phone so much. If I'm going for a walk to the beach I will leave my phone at home. Spending time away from the glare of the screen s good. Go sit on a beach and watch the waves without wanting to snapchat it. Just experience it and don't document it. To be perfectly honest; no one wants to see what you're having from Starbucks.
It actually felt like I was being weighed down with the constant communication with people. Being able to text someone within seconds is good but with that comes pressure.
Pressure to get liked, pressure to be in group chats, pressure to be as good as the other girls.
Use your phone to enhance your life. Don't forget about the real world.
