Lose the technology.
Ok, this is not new, yet it is still resisted, excused, justified and your phone and computer are stealing moments and memories. Shut it down, power off and put it away. No one likes to compete with the other demands you have rationalized as “urgent and important.” “I hope you don’t mind, I am waiting for a call from my boss.” “Oh! I want to show you some pictures from my game yesterday!” “Let’s take a selfie!” All these might be valid reasons but know that they are also decisions to diminish the quality time you think you are creating. The message it sends is that you have more quality time with your gadgets than your loved one. Be brave, commit to a techno-fast during quality time.
