How do you unplug from technology?
Marge, Ad Sales Coordinator: I unplug by enjoying a good book (you know, the old-fashioned kind with pages that you manually turn). I enjoy the feel of the paper between my fingers and the “old book” smell, which you never get from technology. Donna Cleveland, Editor in Chief: I love my job, but the fact remains that I spend my days staring at the screen of my Mac, iPhone, or Apple Watch. When I leave work, going to a yoga or CrossFit class helps me break free of my devices, if just for an hour. Sarah Kingsbury, Senior Web Editor: I try to make it hard to mindlessly waste time on my iPhone by docking it when I'm at home. I can still use my iPhone if I need to, but leaving it in one place makes me more likely to engage with my family instead of my device. Rheanne, Associate Editor: Unplugging from technology sounds like a great idea in theory, but then I never actually put the idea into practice unless I do so unintentionally—like when I accidentally leave my phone at home or forget to charge it before a trip.
