How to Recharge with a Digital Detox

So, here’s what happened: My eight year old daughter recently asked me, “why are you always on your phone or computer?” I was stunned. It didn’t used to be like this. I was the last of my friends to get a cell phone and only bought a lap top computer for my business last year. Over […]
