I love this idea by Apple who are introducing a way to give ourselves and our children some much needed tech time out!
We are so connected yet also disconnected due to technology these days that is is sad we need a 'do not disturb' function on our phones but, for some, very necessary.
I am no different.
I can easily get distracted by a message or notification at work; whilst driving; or having lunch with a friend. The list goes on and the balance needs to be shifted back.
I challenge you to have tech time out every day, especially first thing in the morning. I don't check my messages or Facebook notifications when I wake up. I make sure I set my day up without it because I know it will consume my day.
Yes, I still use it to listen to a motivational speech or guided meditation but not to see what someone has posted or has sent to me.
Apple introduced new controls for limiting how much time customers spend on their devices as the company tackles criticism that its devices are becoming increasingly addictive and distracting.
