Soap fans love following their favorite stars on social media and getting a peek into their personal lives. But in this ever-online society in which we live, with cell phones in our hands more than our pockets, it can all become a bit overwhelming. So General Hospital star Chad Duell (Michael) decided to use his social media to remind his fans of what’s really important in life.

“In the relentless pace of our digital age,” he wrote on Instagram, “the importance of stepping away from technology and immersing ourselves in the natural world cannot be overstated. When we disconnect from our screens, we reconnect with the timeless rhythms of life that ground us.

“The whisper of the wind through the trees, the dance of sunlight on water, and the quiet rustles of leaves underfoot all remind us of a deeper, more enduring reality,” the actor continued. “These moments of escape are not just a respite; they are a return to a more authentic state of being. Embrace the tranquility, breathe deeply, and let the simplicity of nature restore your soul and awaken your senses.”

Duell isn’t super active on social media, only posting occasionally, but we’ve no doubt that one of the favorite things he enjoys in the real world is Dawson, his 10-month-old son with partner Luana Lucci. Before the couple welcomed their beautiful baby boy, they enjoyed nature together, with a winter trip to Yosemite National Park at the end of 2022. And in January 2024, the whole family enjoyed an impromptu trip to Big Bear to enjoy the snow, sharing their love of the outdoors with then-five-month-old Dawson.

Unplugging and stepping away from the many screens in life to really take in the world around us is an important message and beautifully expressed by Duell. It’s advice we should all take to heart!
