In the words of the Doctor of Psychology and Vice Chancellor for Academic of UDIMA, Jose Ignacio Dance: “Technology gives us life, but also may create a certain dependency that must be taken to rationalize. Tablets, smartphones and other devices phones are designed for enjoyment, not to depend on them. “
10 Tips To Get Rid Of Social Media & Technologies
Get all tied up before going on vacation: Learn to delegate to a co-worker and try to leave things unresolved. And avoid having to spend all day pending mobile and emails.
Turn off the phone during meals: On vacation you can enjoy meals with family and afford to spend long talking after dinner.
Avoids reading emails every 5 minutes: The smartphones allow us to check if we have new e-mails from anywhere: the beach, pool … But compulsively make sure that you do it maximum once a day. It gets difficult to leave emails suddenly but it’s not impossible, check your emails once a day for example, before going to sleep, is more than enough.
Enjoy books and newspapers: Enjoy the holiday to park the digital versions of newspapers and books. Enjoy the pleasure to read sitting on the terrace or on the beach with your book or newspaper in your hand.
Write postcards instead of e-mails: Do you remember the joy (or healthy envy) that caused us to receive a postcard from a friend or family from your vacation spot? Why not get that usual? Give someone a surprise when I opened the mailbox to find that in addition to bills, your card is handwritten.
Log out of Facebook: Social networking is a revolution that allows us to connect instantly with many people. But the holidays are a time to strengthen relationships in person with friends and family. Take the time to go out and meet with those with whom during the year can only speak through the networks.
Forget the mobile, tablet and the computer in the apartment or hotel: Trust us. You can do it! When you go down to the beach, pool or you go for a walk in the mountains try to leave these devices at home. So you better enjoy this time of day without thinking of them.
Stop tweeting for a few days: You are not a Barack Obama, world can run without your tweets. Twitter is a fantastic tool to learn, think and meet people, but tweeting everything you do on holidays makes it a social media trip. You don’t go out with your family to show off what fun you are having and what places you are visiting. You can do it after you come back. Don’t be attention seeker to a level which doesn’t even let you to spend some time with your family.
No games on your vacation spot: You can change your favorite video game by a party with family and friends to one of those games of all life sleeping in the drawer. Enjoy the good weather to do some outdoor exercise.
Back to traditional retailers: Take the opportunity to change the shopping “online” for visiting flea markets and local shops. Date the pleasure to watch, browse and play around without rushing. If you’re on vacation out of your city, do not forget to visit the local market and enjoy seasonal products.
