We’re all addicted but it’s time to Break Free

We are addicted to our technology. We depend on it for almost everything, especially our phones. Do you think you’re capable of spending a day technology free?

They’re everywhere. How about we try to cut back just a little so we can actually see the world around us and enjoy it a little bit more?
