“I need to check my email again.”
“I have 14 Facebook notifications!”
“Look! Another Snapchat!”
“Just google it.”
How many times have you heard these phrases from your family and friends…or found that you were just as plugged into your phone or netbook or tablet as they are? Can you leave your phone turned off during a family dinner anymore? Even during “down time,” are you streaming movies or playing games online? The lure to stay connected and reachable has reached epic proportions and shows no signs of slacking off. Should you consider a little slacking off, perhaps?
While technology has certainly improved the modern world, many compelling reasons exist to tone down the use of it, at least for a time. As you consider our outstanding cabins for sale in Texas, don’t forget the benefits that can accrue from instituting an unplugged lifestyle while you’re here!
- Scientists are beginning to discover the brain benefits of silence, including increased growth in the parts of the brain associated with learning, memory, and emotions. Who doesn’t need better memory?
- Comparisons can steal your joy. Nowhere else can you find more plentiful opportunities to compare your life and find it lacking than online. On social media, your friends post the perfect vacation photos, your old high school buddy bought a mansion, and your cousin found a dream job–the same job you would love to have. Websites abound with pictures of more and better and newer and on and on. Unplugging gives you the chance to appreciate what you already have.
- As Ferris Bueller famously said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.” Unplugging gives you and your loved ones a great chance to look around and make some memories. You might even find yourself looking for great cabins for sale in Texas so you can do just that!
- Most of the time spent online and electronics involves consumption, either of games or knowledge. Time spent offline, however, provides you with the opportunity to create: memories, art, games, photographs, laughs. The best part, of course, is creating those things with the living, breathing people you love beside you.
Mill Creek Ranch Resorts believes that one of the best places to unplug your life for a little while is in and around our Cottage 97. Built in a solid, classic Craftsman style, this cabin boasts a view of Red Tail Pond every time you walk out the front door and a gorgeous view of SouthPointe Pond off the spacious back patio. Imagine fishing or bird watching every day; the back patio has two rocking chairs ready for you right now! Imagine your family in the spacious feeling living room, playing a game one night while planning out the follow day’s schedule of disc-golf/horseshoes/cannonball jumping tournaments. You sure can’t do all of that online! If you have children, imagine them sharing secrets in the upstairs loft as they drift off to sleep after a full day of living life without a phone at the end of their wrists. Yes, Mill Creek Ranch Resort has cabins for sale in Texas, but we’re also hoping you’ll use your time in our family’s cabin to disconnect your electronics and reconnect with life.
