They never stop do they?
It’s just ping after ping after ping. I try and avoid reading through notifications first thing in the morning, but sometimes I can’t help it. There’s always another email, another social media notification, another message to respond to. I think we could spend a whole day on our phones or online, trying to catch up on notifications, and there’d still be another ping at the end of the day!
It’s the blessing and curse of technological revolution: we’ve never before been more connected and up-to-date. We’re so lucky to live in a world of connection, but it’s also a never ending stream of input that steals our attention.
It’s hard, but we have to choose to switch off or unplug. How will you disconnect for a little while today?
