Healthcare is a complex system of healthcare professionals, hospitals, and patients. The importance of these connections cannot be understated. In fact, they are the foundation of remote healthcare. Connecting with each other is what we do at Seriouzly! And we have learned that when people connect with each other they become more human and compassionate towards one another. These connections are what allow us to bring the best possible health care to remote areas around the world!
We put our phones down.
We want you to put your phone down. We want you to be in the moment, with people around you and not on a screen. We want everyone who is reading this article right now to set their phones aside for at least five minutes and focus on what they’re doing in that moment.
If we can do it–and we did–so can you! And when it comes time for us all to pick up our phones again (which won’t take long), we’ll have learned something from the experience: That being connected doesn’t mean being distracted by everything else going on in life; sometimes it means disconnecting from technology so we can connect with each other instead.
