As much as smartphones have improved our lives, they’ve also made it quite difficult to feel fully present in the world around us. Beeps, alerts, notifications, ringing, and vibrations all let us know that there are other items vying for attention and demanding an immediate response, without regard for whatever activity is currently at hand. Sometimes this is okay, but when it comes to things like setting aside time to play with your kids, it’s important that we don’t have interruptions.
