Valentines and elections, Marriages and lives … All are lost from little things, not big. Each decision we make impacts our lives for the long haul. We are the only person in the world who is 100% impacted by every single choice we make. My Continue reading It’s no big thing…
As Tech use spikes, so does Brain Research. The burning question on NPR recently – are we addicted? Do video games spike our dopamine receptors? Are we even capable of living an unplugged life? “Smart phones” are called “crackberries” for a reason. I sent that Continue reading Luddite or TechnoAddict?
This was supposed to be a simpler time. Computers and time-saving devices would make life easier. Not so. We’re inundated with advertising, news stories, social media, buy this buy that – it’s all noise. It’s enough to make us crawl back into bed and pull Continue reading Finding Sanity in Silence
Couch potatoes have moved to the Office Chair. Sitting in front of your computer for hours at a time isn’t good for you. We’ve lost our way.
