The other day I caught myself watching TV, sending emails on my computer, and checking my phone all at the same time. Sadly, this isn’t as unusual of an occurrence as I would like it to be. I always laugh at people who lose their phones because, frankly, mine is almost always in my hand. But maybe there are advantages to “losing” your phone (or computer or tablet…), whether on accident or not. The topic of “unplugging” is often brought up in our social media-savvy generation. It is a topic that is typically scoffed at by teens but encouraged by their parents. So what exactly are the benefits of unplugging.
