Let’s Be Smarter With Our Smart Phones

Technology is obviously beneficial and even essential to live today. I’m not knocking the countless perks we have from its advances. My point is we have abused our smartphone privileges, so now we have to remember why they were created in the first place — to enhance our lives, not consume them.

The World is a Beautiful Place That We Refuse To See

We’re insulting the people and world around us by obsessively checking Twitter and Facebook and text messages. And for what? To get a second’s worth of false dopamine hits?

Hate To Call You Out, But…

If you’re someone who automatically checks Instagram stories before your alarm goes off in the mornings — and I say this with love because we’ve all fallen victim to it — you need an intervention. If you’re someone who documents every detail of your day online — and I don’t say this with love — you need to stop.

Life is better when we laugh. I write about the importance of mental health & believe our weirdness is what makes us great. https://ashleyalt.substack.com/
