Some time ago Jaimy Ford wrote an article titled “Smartphones are the Real Enemy”. Smartphones, cell phones, Facebook, Twitter are seriously hurting our relationships.

If you have lunch with someone, stay focused on the person who bothered coming to spend time with you. It is not just disrespectful, it hurts. It clearly tells that the device is more important than the person with whom you are apparently having lunch.

Practice this during the Christmas season. Focus on the person in front of you.
