Next time you are out socially with others, shut down your technology and try to connect more through conversation, using more eye contact and being a good listener.
(From the Inner Guide 2016 Planner)
Questions to Ponder:
- How often do you check your phone or other technology throughout the day?
- When have you felt ignored because of technology?
- When have you ignored others?
- What could you do differently to increase your connections with others?
