Accessories can make or break an outfit.
I’ve always been more into bracelets and earrings than shoes or jeans. Since I was a young girl, family and friends have known how much I love jewelry. It’s a hobby of mine to search out distinct and handcrafted items. I’d rather own a small amount of unique accessories than a bunch of cheap jewelry that everyone else can buy at the same retailer.
Recently I became acquainted with JORD watches. It’s been a while since I’ve kept up with time on an actual watch, as opposed to my phone, but seeing this line of watches changed my mind.
I also feel like there’s been a shift in my attachment to devices. I’m trying to be more intentional about leaving my phone in the car, on my desk or in my purse so I can fully unplug and explore the sights and sounds around me. With that being said, I still want to know what time it is. Yet, I don’t want to wear a clunky or unstylish smartwatch or fitness tracker on my wrist.
In fact, I recently read a blog about the benefits of being unplugged. I’ve listed a few of the key perks below. In today’s crazy, over stimulating society, it’s important to unplug every now and then.
Perks of being unplugged
- More engaging conversation
- A boost in creativity
- Lower feelings of isolation or self-loathing
- Increase in productivity
- Better mood
- Less chance of comparison oneself or self-loathing
I feel like we’re missing out on life and also not being good models for our children. If they’re watching us on our phones all of the time, they will do the same.
If you’re like me and have circled back around to wearing a classic time piece on your wrist and looking for a brand that’s stunning and well-made, check out JORD.
And as an aside, the brand name “JORD” is pronounced “yode” like Yoda but without the “a” sound on the end.
