Health & Fitness
The Montrose Apartments in Chicago offers plenty of fun amenities you can enjoy on your own or with loved ones. These amenities include a 24-hour fitness center, swimming pool with sundeck and a picnic deck with gas grills for barbecue aficionados. Even so, enjoying our great amenities is not the only reason you should consider taking a technology break from time to time. Following are a few more good reasons for turning off your computers and smartphones every so often and enjoying life’s many other pleasures.
IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH
Spending too much time on a computer or smartphone can easily lead to unwanted weight gain. One reason for this is that playing computer games and browsing the Internet often takes the place of physical activity. Another reason is that many people using a computer or watching a movie tend to eat a lot of junk food without thinking about it. Additionally, too much computer usage can interfere with your sleep, making it hard to get a good night’s rest.
REAL LIFE ENGAGEMENT
Technology makes it easy for us to connect with people in other countries or cities; at the same time, it makes it difficult to connect with the people right in front of us. Taking a technology break enables you to spend time with family members, friends or even new acquaintances without distractions. Connecting with people in real life builds relationships, creates memories and will help you improve your communication skills.
ELIMINATE WASTED TIME
It is all too easy to use technology as a time-waster. Games, news channels, and social media channels are all addicting to some degree and many people spend far more time on these sites than needed. Giving technology the boot every so often will give you the extra time you need to work on personal projects, spend time with your loved ones or simply relax and enjoy a sunset.
Get in touch with us if you’re looking not only for a technology break but also a good apartment in the North Chicago area. Our office is open seven days a week and we offer studio, one- and two-bedroom floor plans in various price points.
