How to have fun without staring at your device?
You would be surprised where a “quick” Instagram feed check might take you. To places you surely have been before – to the web-in its entirety. Liking, commenting, sharing, expressing your thoughts, and many more awesome Internet perks are out there, but don’t you feel that you would spend more time outside if you did not have access to the Internet? Yes, your schedule is tight, you don’t even have time to cook a proper breakfast, but somehow you have time to check how your friends’ daughter was dressed for her prom, and enough time to write those comments to your colleague. You are not alone. According to theTelegraph, the average person has five social media accounts and spends around 1 hour and 40 minutes browsing these networks every day. Of course, some spend more than that, and some less. But hey, we do love statistics and surveys, right? So, 1 hour and 40 minutes a day this is the exact time going to the gym would take, or seeing an old friend for a cup of coffee, or cleaning out that pesky closet downstairs, or taking your dog (and yourself) for a good trail hike. See? Now, let’s compare: 1 hour 40 minutes of staring at your screen, holding that “phone neck” in a completely unhealthy posture, or going out and having something that brings you value?
You would be surprised how many events your city has to offer. Local movie theaters, talented singers and live music at coffee shops, charity events, wine and yoga events (yes, there is such an event), local running communities, team sports, craft beer tastings – you name it. Concorders, this is your city. Now, since you have almost finished reading this, go here for a full list of events, put you phone down, get out and fill your life with real experiences!
