Tech

Time to get up!

The only thing truly scary about excess screen time is a lack of exercise. When your eyes get stuck, so does you butt and your neck.

Fortunately, the same tech that keeps you grounded can also remind you to move. Thanks to my iWatch prompts, I avoid the digital vacuum and walk around the apartment and take the dog out more often.

Statistics keep you honest. You got to get your steps in or the tech will call you out. Needless to say, digital health monitoring has a huge future.

From sharing status updates to tracking your sedentary status, technology is the glue that binds and motivates people. All this connectivity is like the reinvention of printing press but with no strings attached.

The internet has infinite inventory to entertain and distract you all day. But your health and attention are scarce resources. They have a shelf life.

Just remember to disconnect more often than you think. Once you grab a leash and take your thoughts for a walk, everything will be just fine.
