How to stop Technology from Ruining Communication in your Relationships

crazy-date-2.png

All of America is online!  In fact the whole world is online.  All you need is a phone with internet capabilities, a smartphone and your in.  Facebook, Instagram,Twitter.  You can record your whole life and post it for all the world to see.  Every thought you think be it positive or negative just click and send. Although the internet can fill our need for instantaneous gratification it has forever changed relationships and the way we communicate.  My husband and I were recently out on date night in L.A.  We had dinner at a restaurant just a couple of blocks from Venice Beach.  The plan was after dinner we’d leave the car, walk to the beach and watch the sunset.

We went to our car to get our beach blankets.  Being that this is Venice Beach, there’s no shortage of indoor, outdoor restaurants and bars there couples everywhere and they all come to watch the sunset.  One couple happened to catch our attention. They were walking side by side headed toward the beach. She was looking down at her phone and he was looking down at his.  Sad.  You may have seen couples like this, or worse a couple is out at dinner sitting at the table ignoring each other both on their phones. Really?  Whatever happened to uninterrupted quality time?  I guess it’s the latest casualty that’s fallen by the wayside in the age of advanced technology.  The post today talks about ways in which technology may be ruining your relationships and how to stop it!

5 ways technology is ruining your relationships and how to stop it

  • Track your time online and set boundaries with technology.  Exactly how many hours are you spending online?  Think about how you can restructure your time to do other things you like to do.
  • Substitute online time for healthier habits. Like spending times with friends or family.
  • Get connected in real life! Establish healthy fulfilling relationships.
  • Be present in the moment with a loved one. Virtual connections online can’t replace physical interaction.  Constantly being online interrupts quality time together that can’t be replaced.
  • Perhaps you should use some of that free time to spend time with God in prayer.  Maybe you have an issue or issues in your life that you need God to fix or help you with, or you just need to thank Him for how good He’s been.  I love the way Joyce Meyer puts it, “Don’t go to the phone, go to the throne!”

  • Smart tip of the day:  If you find yourself being less and less present in relationships with family and friends and spend endless hours glued to your phone, or you feel as though you can’t go a day without it, it could be a sign you need to unplug.  You may want to reset, create clear boundaries with technology to put more effort into what’s really important.  Technology can become idol worship!  Jonah 2:8 “those who cling to worthless idols turn away from God’s love for them.”
