Happy Friday Everyone!

I wrote about taking some time away from technology before and explained how much it helped me relax and gather my thoughts. I believe it is important to do a technology cleanse once in a while. It has done nothing but made me feel great every time I did it.

A cleanse doesn’t mean you have to put down your phone for days. You can create a daily routine of 30 min to an hour, or find time every weekend to break away from technology a little bit. Your mind and soul will thank you!

Another time when it is the most important to put our phones to the side is when we are driving. I would lie if I said I have never grabbed my phone before while driving. I searched for songs, called someone up or quickly read a short message. This is a ridiculous mistake and there are no excuses for it. There are other people on the road and when I am behind the wheel, I am responsible for their safety as well. 

This is why I decided to take the pledge to STOP

Without an exception, every time I drive I see some other people on their phone and this is a scary thought. As I got older I realized absolutely nothing can be as important at the moment as our safety.

Please join AT&T in their movement to make our roads safer and pledge to drive without our phones’ distraction. You can take the pledge with me at ITCANWAIT.COM and follow the movement along @ItCanWait on Twitter!

5 Tips to Not Get Distracted While Driving

  1. Download the At&TDrive Mode app or if you prefer something else, there are many other options available. You can set up an automated message so when someone texts you they will receive a notification that you are driving at the moment but will get back to them as soon as you arrive!
  2. Create a playlist 
  3. If you must receive calls, connect your phone to the speakers with an AUX cord. (If you don’t have bluetooth available in your car)
  4. Set up speed dial
  5. Silence notifications 

THIS IS NOT A SPONSORED POST, I JUST TRULY BELIEVE IN THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS MESSAGE! 

Are you gonna take the pledge?
