Transcript

Quality time together often means time that's not distracted time. One of the biggest distractors in today's day and age is our technology - our devices. When we have our phones with us, even if we're not looking at our phones, they actually can be a source of distraction because they're still in our field of awareness. We still might be recognizing whether alerts are coming up, notifications are coming up, calls are coming through, and so a portion of our attention is still focused on our devices and not on the person in front of us. So if our intention is really to spend quality time with our partners, that means undivided attention. That means putting our devices away.
