Growing up in the 60s, the best source of free entertainment was the TV and our imagination. Turning your mom’s broom upside-down created your riding horse, coke bottles and a ball was your bowling alley and reading wasn’t a chore—it was an adventure. Now, computers, cellphones, laptops and tablets dominate. Unless you choose the right software—no real cognitive skills are required.
If you try turning off the cellphone for a couple of hours; will it lead to cardiac failure?
I recently returned from a two week trip without internet and tv service...I did however have use of my cellphone...It's hard to believe that I've only had a smartphone for a few years and feel that it is essential.
I guess we need to readjust our thinking to the 60's again!
We have a cottage with no TV or Internet. At first we were worried we might be bored. Just the opposite has happened! We've developed new hobbies and really feel so much more relaxed when we are unplugged. Of course, once we return to civilization it's another story. We lapse back into our hooked in habits. Sigh.
