IT WAS ALL A MEME…
Well actually, it started with one, which is mildly ironic considering this program is all about stopping the scroll and getting back to what matters more. A few months ago a study (finally) came out how Instagram is bad for our health, shocker, right? We’re also at the point where the term “text neck” is a legitimate thing. Obviously technology isn’t going anywhere, but that doesn’t mean we always have to be dependent on it.
If you’re in your mid twenties to early thirties, you’re with me on being stuck in that between stage. You know that stage of pre-social media stalking and when Facebook was a single picture and you couldn’t sign up without a college email address.
Remember waiting for the piece of actual mail that was sent to you with your address so you could become part of the online community that was only for someone going to college in hopes of a degree?
Remember when Instagram only had 8 filters and there were no such things as tagging people in pictures, a popular page, or stories?
Now go back even further into your mind when the only way you could take pictures was with a digital or disposable camera and if you wanted to update your friends on a ‘status’ you had to actually pick up the landline and give them a call.
Simple times, right? Maybe, maybe not, either way times before technology were times that will never happen again. Whether we miss those days or not there’s no denying that our connection with ourselves is compromised by our handheld.
I’m a strong believer that our connection with ourselves is the most important one because without it, it’s almost impossible to have one anywhere else. I also believe the more we become dependent on what our cell phones do for us, the more we start to lose that connection with not only ourselves, but with the things that really matter.
That’s why I created recharge your soul not your cell, to get back to the things that matter more in person rather than behind a screen.
