We all are connected with technology 24X7 but not with real world.
It has become part of our daily life. It should not become the reason of our death.
YES … anything excess is not good.
Cell phones, mobile e-mail, and all the other cool and slick gadgets can cause massive losses in our creative output and overall productivity.
Robin S. Sharma
Check below for yourself…
What happens to you when battery of your smart phone is 5% left?
What happen to you when you forget your smart phone at home?
Do you check your smart phone every few minutes?
What happen when you login to social networking sites?
How much time do you get engaged to internet?
When was the last time you shut off all the external gadgets and walk around, talk to people, and just enjoyed the life for a while?
Do you become anxious just thinking about how many emails are loading up in your inbox?
How many pages you read of a paperback book with actual pages every day?
When was the last time you enjoyed meditation?
How many selfie per day? Read about selfie syndrome..
How many tabs are open in your mind?
Have you became Narcissistic?
Just think and answer above questions honestly, to know your digital addiction level. I would like to share the outcome of research done at California state university.
The research says that excessive usage of social networking may be connected to the following psychiatric problems…
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
- Obsessive : Compulsive disorder
- Narcissistic personality disorder
- Schizoaffective & schizotypal disorders
- Body dysmorphia
- False feeling of being connected
Please don’t try to dilute it by giving excuses and reasons.
Please don’t try to justify your digital addiction rather try to detox it.
YES Digital dieting & Digital detoxing.
Switch off all your external gadgets for a day and rediscover yourself.
You will find time to practice meditation. Talk to yourself, to your loved ones, live with your family, meet relatives and friends personally.
Just walk in garden and observe nature by your own eyes (Not on screen). Leave all virtual weight aside and enjoy nature naturally.
You will find it so wonderful that you will repeat it every week and so your children.
You may share this with your loved ones, family, relatives and friends.
When fast food is not a treat but a dietary staple, the children surf the internet all day in dark corners of the room and are bombarded with latest gadgets. Things replace parental standards.
