Get disconnected to be connected

The most frequently asked questions by those who are  interested to be  volunteers or simply come for a visit to our farm  is “do you have an internet connection?” My answer is illustrated by the photo below.

Layog Country Farm is a perfect place where one could unwind and find peace of mind  by being free for a while from all the technological gadgets we are very much dependent of. I have some selected collections of quotes about unplugging or  getting disconnected because we are over -connected. Do you recognize yourself in one of these?

Sometimes you have to disconnect to stay connected. Remember the old days when you had eye contact during a conversation? When everyone wasn’t looking down at a device in their hands? We’ve become so focused on that tiny screen that we forget the big picture, the people right in front of us.

-Regina Brett

Nowadays we have so many things that take our attention – phones, Internet – and perhaps we need to disconnect from those and focus on the immediate world around us and the people that are actually present.

-Nicholas Hoult

Turn off your email; turn off your phone; disconnect from the Internet; figure out a way to set limits so you can concentrate when you need to, and disengage when you need to. Technology is a good servant but a bad master.

– Gretchen Rubin

Social media demands a lot of us on top of our already demanding lives. So let’s disconnect as we need to and renew our interest and ourselves.

– Simon Mainwaring

Being connected to everything has disconnected us from ourselves and the preciousness of this present moment.

-L.M. Browning
