All I have is my iPhone today. No smartwatch and no bluetooth headphones. In my world, that’s considered being tech-free and it is Tuesday. So it’s #TechFreeTuesday!! Goooooood morning Mizfits! and those of you here because you’re bored too! Welcome!
So here it is Tuesday morning and I’m wearing a digital watch. Plastic band, minimal functionality like an alarm, that cool blue backlight and a stopwatch. No notifications, beeps and dings or “time to stand” alerts going off all day. My headphones today? They came with my phone and they have a cord attached to them. So it’s a be careful not get em snagged while I’m jamming and working type of day. But I don’t mind. Both of the items that I mentioned above are very convenient and I’m far from complaining. But sometimes…
Well why would I leave them behind and use the old wired headphones and $13 wristwatch? It’s simple. It feels good. I feel light and even though I’m connected by a wire to listen to my phones music, I still feel free. I’d leave my phone at home if it wasn’t my main means of communication. I am one of those people that still jot things down on paper and add with my fingers sometimes. Lol, I don’t always use the calculator. If anything I’d miss my phones camera throughout the day if I went without it.
About 5 years ago I wouldn’t be caught dead without as much of my gadgets possible on my person…everyday! Every ime I left the house. It didn’t matter where I was going or how long I was going to be. I just had to have all my tech stuff. I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older (insert old jokes here) or because I’ve been messing around with technology for so long. What I do know is that it feels great to unplug myself from 95% of technology sometimes and if I can do it… ANYBODY can! It gets boring sometimes. Social media gets repetitive and I don’t feel like I’m missing anything if I don’t open a app every few minutes. Things have definitely changed for me and I like the change. I’ll always love my #TechLife and look forward to what technology advancements show up, but it is ok to……once in while.

As usual and until next time…
Thanks for the view and #staytechdup
