Now, don’t get us wrong, no one is cringing more than us with what we’re about to say & we’re certainly not suggesting that we head back to the ‘dark ages’, but we have come to the conclusion that some of the ways in which we were taught to do things growing up, may just be helpful in the future.
Technology has come a long way over the last 100 years and its helped us develop phenomenally. However, we don’t seem to have grasped that it’s also made us slightly lazier and introvert at the same time.
When we think back to those eye rolling moments, where we were told to sit up straight, watch how many times we said the word ‘like’ in my sentence or told to make sure we ate properly, it’s hard to admit & digest that as an adult when you find yourselves reflecting on those moments, those points may not only have been helpful for our future, but that they were pieces of guidance that were probably right!
Maybe its common sense, but we definitely know that revisiting these memories, we have realised just how influenced we’ve become by ‘modern life’. We all feel that pressure is worse than it was in the past (for different reasons maybe), and now that more stereotypical families have both parents out working, convenience wins every time!
We’ve therefore come up with a few quick & simple ways to effectively meet the demands of everyday life, but provide solutions that would be better for the environment, your bank balance & to make our Grandparents happy!
