Technology is definitely something that has quickly been integrated into our daily lives, and with internet capable devices becoming smaller and more portable, social media, email, and YouTube are now more easily accessible than ever before.

I’ve been challenging myself to disconnect and unplug for a certain amount of time each day, and I challenge you to do the same. It’s definitely not always easy, but I’ve found some things that are helping me to become less dependent on my devices, and more skilled at living in the moment.
