5 Ways To Be Wise With Your Device

For most people, our day depends on our devices – personally and professionally. Being considerate and smart about our “device practices” are critical and impactful. Here are five ways to manage your device time wisely:

  1. Take your device away – from yourself. When you’re dining, in a meeting, conversing, at a presentation or service – give your full personal attention.
  2. Use your words – politely and wisely. Be sensitive to additional implications and your tone. Remember your written messages can be misunderstood because you’re not there in an interpersonal conversation.
  3. Prioritize your time with your device. You don’t need to be attached to and capturing every moment of your day on your device. Take a break and just enjoy the little moments – to yourself.
  4. No texting or posting while driving – ever. It only takes a moment for an accident to happen. I can’t stress enough the #ItCanWait campaign.
  5. Your privacy matters. Turn off your location settings and make sure your privacy settings are always on. Don’t sacrifice your personal safety.

So be wise with your device – it matters in large and small ways.
