Technology has advanced so much, having our phones, laptop, tablets etc has made life easier. It has made hyperconnected and hyperdistracted.
We have ‘connected’ with people online but have ‘disconnected’ with people in real life. This is causing a lot of issues in family and work leading to addiction. Our lives has become more depended on the validation/affirmation of ‘likes’ and ‘follows’ we have on social media.
Using digital media may cause short and long term health problems:
- changes in emotion
- decrease memory
- shorten attention span
These things all together can affect how we communicate with people. Not only that we have started noticing an increase physical issues;
- neck pain
- back pain
- changes in eye sight
Sedentary life (saturation of technology) can lead to other health problems such as heart problems etc. Minimising screen time, spending more time outside in the sun with friends can help you et your life back onto the healthy path. Start reconnecting with reality.
