Everything that distracts does not improve joy. Getting the best and brightest toys out does not produce joy. They run counter to each other. The more you have, the more you seem to want and all the things distract the eyes and the mind from people who miss a good conversation.There is joy in speaking with someone and sharing thoughts, your day, ideas. There is great sadness in solitude and tech socialization is not the best substitute for it. The next best thing costs a lot of money. It is quite freeing to sit instead and have a cup of coffee with a friend or take your kid out to the park. These things build memories and bonding and character and love. Tech is cold and heartless and can never give you a warm hug. So rather than the newest new thing, my money will be going into outings and vacations and dates and investing in people I love.
