Being a tech nerd of this generation, I find myself plugged in and online seemingly 24/7. From computers to smart phones to tablets, we can be connected whenever wherever  I think it’s totally cool and amazing, but sometimes even I feel the overwhelm and glossy eyed effect of it all. Why not take a digital break and go offline on purpose?

I don’t know about you, but I find myself compulsively checking things online with my smartphone. Not healthy, huh? So my take action step this week was to stay offline for a few days.

It was a little weird to not even turn on my computer! But no worries, because life goes on and I feel refreshed.
