Between work, happy hours, weddings and baby showers, it’s almost impossible to get a minute to yourself. And with our rising addiction to social media and smartphones (the average American spends 162 minutes a day on their phone), “alone time” becomes more and more of a mythical concept–it’s like the unicorn of “state of beings.” On the flip side, it’s easy to get so sucked into technology that human contact becomes a rarity too. Let’s face it, it’s easier to text, message and tag someone than it is to pick up the phone or meet for coffee. This year, you may have resolved to make more of an effort to keep in touch. Or maybe you’ve resolved to “unplug” and not over-schedule yourself. We think you can strive for both.
Your smartphone is probably how you stay connected to who’s doing what. Keep it safe and stylish.
Your smartphone isn’t the only thing that needs to recharge. Choose one night a weekend to kick back with a good movie and a warm blanket …
and your favorite beverage.
If you’re aiming to keep in touch and keep old and new friends up to date on the latest happenings in your life, there’s still nothing like getting actual mail.
Lastly, make sure you’re keeping track of all your goings on and stayings ins with a calendar.
