340: Is your phone distracting you from real life?

We had a week off from podcasting, Mum and Dad were up from Canberra. We were busy wedding dress shopping, real estate shopping (well, driving around Gold Coast showing them different areas) , eating lots of great food and all the beach walks.

Time is our most precious resource, especially time with the people we love, right?

But have you ever stopped to realise that your phone is often getting in the way of real life? It really is the biggest distraction.

This is what we spoke about during the episode

  • We’re missing potential connections and conversations because of these devices. We’re disconnecting from ourselves and people.
  • People are consuming content and ideas but we’re not allowing ourselves to contemplate and think our own thoughts.  
  • Check in with yourself and bring awareness to every time you pick your phone up.
  • Create boundaries with your devices. If you’re a parent (good luck hehe), we have no idea, but we’ve heard it’s more about being an example for the kids. 

It’s a good time to self-reflect, open up the conversation and make a change. Use your devices for the good. If you are now inspired to self-reflect and decide to stop using your devices so much, send us an email to [email protected] or [email protected] or message us on our Facebook and Instagram accounts @themerrymakersisters.
