#20 Plug in/Un plug

How has technology affected your life (positively or negatively) in 2011? Do you want this to continue for 2012?

With all the technology that is now accessible on smart phones, I find myself more connected than I want to be at times.  I have email, fb and twitter all at my finger tips.  While it was good when Iw as looking for a job or waiting on an email it is also a great time waster.  It takes a conscious effort not to constantly check my phone.

So I wam trying to unplug and focus on other things that technology.  i turn off my computer and my phone for a few hours each day and sped time doing other things like cooking, playing with the dogs, errands, chores and reading.  It is shocking what a time such being connected can be.

My goal in 2012 is to continue to be plugged in to life around me and not online.

What is your plug in or unplug goal?

I can totally relate! Ever since I got a Smartphone in May, that thing has been attached to my hand. I really need to make a point about not using it more often, especially when I'm having a conversation with The Hubs. It sorta annoys him! hehe :-)
