Live life and make time for technology, not the other way around!

Thanks to the tech. gadgets we carry around in our pockets and purses, being a good friend, father, mother, spouse, worker, or citizen requires a lot more work. We are slowly being conditioned to respond to the many reminders, chimes, tones, and other "notifications" that these gadgets enable, and unfortunately, at the expense of our relationshiops and jobs.

Think of how many times you have been talking to someone and before you know it you have your phone out, head down, and fingers ready to respond to the text you just received. How many times have you been on the receiving end of this kind of behavior? (Read this fun blog about cell phone etiquette)

Its time to start respecting your relationships and living your life. Especially this Holiday season! Be human again. We are not saying you need to throw your technology away (we love technology too much to ever suggest this), but we are encouraging you to use it in proportion to what matters most.

So, turn off the chimes, reminders, and notifications, and turn on YOU!
