Less of the emojis, more of the real-world interaction
Saturday 17th July may mark World Emoji Day 2021 but this year challenge yourself to rely less upon communication via emoji and reconnect with family and friends in real life.
Over the past year or so, communicating through screens has become more the norm than ever and it undoubtedly holds a now vital place in our community. Yet we mustn’t let the convenience and ease of communicating through technology replace our speech and language skills. As blogger Aaron Crowther says, “the problem with being connected is that we are not connecting.”
So, how can you improve your communication skills?
So this World Emoji Day, put people over machines and reach out to your loved ones face-to-face, even if you have to use the convenience of technology to get their attention. Use technology rather than letting it use you. A quick phone call or text to invite a family member or friend over is a good way to strike the balance.
