Avoid Technology.

On the seventh day of creation, according to the Bible, God rested (Genesis 2:2). Instead of making more and more stuff, God took some time to appreciate what had been created. Today, creating things is easier than ever thanks to the many amazing technologies we have at our fingertips. From playlists to videos to plain old word docs, our computers, tablets, cell phones and music players help us create hundreds of things a day. But, like God, it's a good idea for us to take some time to appreciate everything that we already have created before we plug back in and start making more.
