I am not a technophobe by any means, but every now and then I feel overwhelmed by all the gizmos and gadgets that has become part of our everyday lives. I remember a time without mobile phones and ipads. Sometimes I envy the true solitude we were able to achieve.
So, once in a while our family has an ‘off line’ day. We pack away the laptops, ipads and mobile phones. We switch off the TV and Xbox. We play word games, paint and build puzzles. We talk to each other.
On days like these I realise we can have the best of both worlds. Balance is the secret though, isn’t it.
