When was the last time you spent a day without your electronic devices and social networks? With eyes glued to the screen, you’re bound to miss the smaller moments left undocumented in Instagram feed. Summer is the perfect time to disconnect from your technological tendencies and reconnect with the real world.
How often does a TV show open with an appealing shot of a city from afar? Instead of taking in the scenic views via a screen, make an adventure of finding them yourself. Try a new hike, find a scenic overlook, or take the elevator to the top of a famous building. A view always feels more powerful when mixed with a summer breeze.
Some other ideas to help you feel liberated: pick up that book you’ve been meaning to start and find a lazy locale outside in the shade. Make room on your nightstand for something besides your cell. Why not wake up and grab a journal instead of your phone? It’ll take away the temptation to check your favorite apps before you even get out of bed.
