The ability to be immediately and constantly connected feeds our need for immediate gratification, but at what cost? The human body benefits from down-time; an opportunity to refresh the batteries as it were. With the host of modern day connectivity options literally flashing before us, it’s a wonder that we have time anymore for replenishing ourselves.
I mean come on, 79% of surveyed business people report that they check their e-mail in the bathroom? Whatever happened to bringing along some light reading or maybe a little time for some introspection? Have we relinquished the need for rest and relaxation?
I am one of those who has limits- I confess, any more connectivity and my head might explode. It was only 4 years ago I got my first cell phone and good luck trying to reach me on it. So, tell me- am I all alone in my thoughts? Is there anyone else out there who is overwhelmed by the magnitude of connectivity?
