Happy new month to one and all and welcome to TCW! Today's whinging from TCW is
SOCIAL MEDIA IS NEGATIVELY AFFECTING MY HEALTH AND WELL-BEING!
I haven't even mastered Insta, never You tubed and now everyone is on Snapchat. Don't you just love it when your phone rings at 2am only to realise that someone accidentally called you while viewing your profile photo on Whatsapp, IMO or Viber? Too many apps to keep up with, and the games, chai, am I the only one not playing candy crush anymore? I don't have enough time to shop anymore and someone is playing candy crush, HA, e morna, it is overwhelming really trying to keep up with technology.
The other day my nephew said to me "Mama you are now always watching your phone like a teenager"(insert surprised emoji), what a wake up call. These days I leave it in my bag when I get home from work otherwise I will be on it till my neck hurts. I feel for our kids and generations yet unborn. Can you imagine the kind of stress they would be in? Not everyone is cut out or wired to handle this go, go, go, rush, rush, rush, selfie, selfie, selfie, snap, snap, snap but then again no one is twisting my hand behind my back to join the craze, its a personal choice and I have resolved to slowly water down my interaction on social media.
Today, instead of being couch potatoes we went for a walk at Araluen Botanic Gardens. This garden is only twenty minutes drive from my house, up the hills of Perth and I can't believe today is the first time we've visited it. We went late in the afternoon while most people were leaving so we had the park almost all to ourselves. It was a beautiful walk, very peaceful. Its a bit cold now in Perth so I wore this striped jersey dress and white converse and held my blanket wrap for extra warmth. Let me know what you think in the comments box.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a lovely week guys and see you at your blog space.
