Begin Insight to Understand Action
Have you noticed conversations are interrupted by bells, chimes and vibrations of the cyber kind? Is "text while talking" our proof of multi-tasking skills to survive 2020?
Do family meals require as many cell-phones as they do forks and plates? Or maybe the side-dish with dinner is always the background noise of the latest Netflix run.
Are secret accounts, unknown apps or fake social media accounts, hurting the trust and relationships within your family or friends? Maybe anxiety is felt every time you log into your social media.
Sometimes it is hard to know what is #fakenews and news events that are worthy of our time and attention.
I know that you have tried to limit digital device use. Maybe you have even deleted an app or two or three.
Maybe you have Alexa turn off Internet access each night. You have even secretly scrolled loved ones cell phones, looking for something.
Yet the digital device interference continues to interfere with the quality of life you deserve.
And then it begins; the blow-ups, melt-downs, shutdowns and just everyday breakdowns, when you suggest limiting digital device use.
After spending over a decade as a marriage and family counselor, along with 6 years of doctoral research on adults and cyberbullying, I understand that having a healthy relationship with digital devices can be tough, yet all things are possible with some minor family adjustments.
I also know that sometimes our careers require constant digital connection leaving us to feel totally defeated with a life- work balance.
We know that digital devices seem almost mandatory in our daily lives and we can feel defeated in managing our time in the cyber world.
In our defeats, is where we find our greatest hope. And hope is where we begin...
