Our generation has become synonymous with technology. Whether it is smart phones, smart watches or computers, we spend the most time interacting with technology. Our daily lives are so intertwined with technology that many would lose track of their lives without it.

Whether it is the new iPhone, new headphones or even those hover boards that were popular in 2016, we are fascinated by technology. However, sometimes we become over involved.

People today have become overly attached to technology and have steered away from human interaction. It seems that people would rather stare at Twitter or text someone than talk to the person sitting right next to them.

Maybe that is why putting down technology should be worthwhile to us. How could we be expected to communicate with others if we cannot put down our phones long enough to do so?

Human interaction is what drives our society. Instead of focusing on the latest phones we should focus on each other and interact. Technology will always be there. However the people that you share your life with right now will not.

We all have limited time on this earth, and instead of spending it buried behind a computer, we ought to spend it out living. Why spend time flipping through pictures of someone else’s life instead of spending time trying to create our own experiences?

Instead of staring at Twitter or Snapchat, we need to focus on connecting with the people around us. The world is a big place, and you cannot explore it from a cell phone
