Do you remember when you were 11 back in 1996 and no one was glued to their cell phones and was able to spend some quality time with you without constantly checking their phones? Weren’t those the good ol days!?
Sadly, I am guilty of that! (The part where I am constantly checking my phone)
I find myself constantly perusing on my phone when it’s not necessary. Yes, I’m somewhat addicted to instagram and I’ll post a tweet from time to time. I do check my Facebook, but not daily. I am a mother and my son needs me! Don’t get me wrong, I do spend plenty of time with him after a long day from work. I am never tired to play a game of peek-a-boo and watch an episode of Mother Goose club on Netflix. We will even go to the playground if weather permits!
So to soak up more of the fun, I need less time on the phone/social media when I’m with family. After all, the time you spend is very precious and seriously: the phone can wait!
How do you find a happy medium balancing your family and having time to yourself, a/k/a being on your phone?
Is it satisfying to you? Are you happy with your balance?
