So it’s been all over the news that the anxiously awaited new Apple Watch will be coming out soon. Everyone is excited for it and it seems to be something people can’t wait to get their hands on.
As awesome as the Apple Watch seems, it saddens me a little. It’s true we live in a world of easy commodities where they try to make everything as accessible as possible. But at the same time, the sad reality is how much we are losing human interaction. The trade off we seem to get is, more advanced technology and less face to face human interaction.
Having everything you need on your wrist, will make your life easier. But it will also be easier to get distracted and focus on a piece of technology instead of the world around you. It’s hard enough to put your phone down, but how do you ignore your watch?
I’d be a liar if I didn’t say that is seems awesome and convenient to have everything right there on your wrist. It makes for such a convenient way to check your messages, phone calls, etc. But, will that mean that since everything is readily available we will forget about the world around us?
Of course, the blame isn’t entirely on a piece of technology. Humans have a lot of the blame for not being able to exert self control. So here’s my challenge for you. Incorporate awesome pieces of technology but don’t forget that there is still a big beautiful world around you and people who are just waiting to be a part of your life. Find a balance between technology and human interaction. That’s all I ask!
What do you guys think? Let me know!
Much love always,
