I’ll readily admit that this would be a tough task for me, but there are indications that our increasing use of technology may be detrimental to our health. For one, it is affecting how our brains process information, and two, it is turning our bodies into those of elderly chain-smokers. Both of these reads are good reminders that we need healthy doses of time away from technology and time spent exerting ourselves physically. In other words, stop reading this, and go take a walk.
