With a mind-blowing 1.8 billion selfies being posted worldwide every day, one has to ask how present people are in their daily lives. I'm not sure taking selfies can contribute to mindfulness and enjoyment of the moment. Surely, by trying to record our self in these moments, we remove ourselves from them? Are we spending too much time capturing selfies rather than actually appreciating our family, our friends, our surroundings? Does the self-centredness of the selfie detract from the joy and communality of life? Especially when we are parents.
Isn't it time we started looking out again when taking photos, rather than always looking inwards?
Just think what you miss by looking in, and not out.
Thankfully, CenterParcs are on a mission to challenge the selfie. Instead, they are asking families to change the perspective of these captured moments, asking people to show them what family fun means to them. (No selfies!) You might even win a family fun bundle worth £300, including cinema tickets, restaurant vouchers, games and more!
Just share a photo of what family fun means to you. Take a photo of the scene(s) around you, and share it on their Facebook page or on Twitter using #Cpfamilytime to be in with a chance of winning.
Here's yesterday's family fun chez nous: jelly eating, messy play and biscuit-decorating!
