I've never been a big Dear Diary type of girl. But have always wanted to be that girl who wrote about her day everyday. Well journalling on scrap pages and blogging is perfect for me. Today's presenter was also discussing mindfulness as part of the student development process. She basically said that on some level technology is a thief of mindfulness. And on some levels she is right. Someone can be yelling fire and the world will pass by with their white ear buds, oblivious to the smoke in their peripheral vision. But I would argue that balance is part of wellness and this balance is the underlying characteristic for human development. For me, technology as increase my mindfulness and my ability to reflect.
