Tech-less Living Rooms Flly Devoid of Electronic Devices
The use of smartphones, computers and screens of all types have become so overwhelming that more people than ever feel they don’t ever truly relax. The need to have downtime is essential for stress relief and to decompress from a day’s work. Without it, people not only fail to relax, but can actually become physically ill by stress induced illnesses.
People are once again yearning for and creating tech free living rooms to engage in truly old fashioned relaxing activities. People are longing for the living room to be a place to engage in casual conversation with friends, read a paperback, play a board game or cards with the kids and just be.
Experts agree that tuning out and powering down is essential for people as a way to toss the worries of the day. Engaging in more activities after school and work that include electronic screens doesn’t allow for down time. The need to tune out, put up one’s feet and forget the day’s activity is overdue. Homeowners are responding by designing living rooms without built-in tech space for televisions or computers.
A pared down design is in and of itself a relaxing sight in this technology filled world. A home should have spaces that are completely tech free and allow inhabitants to restore and revitalize without technology.
