In today’s world, having a smartphone in hand seems almost like second nature. We use them to communicate, check social media, and look up various things as well as entertainment. Managing time on them can be difficult, but one must prioritize, less the quality of life may decline. Remember to make time for self care, such as exercise and sleep. Studies show viewing a phone screen and the blue light the phone emits can disrupt sleep patterns. Take time to be in the moment with the people in your live; the kids won’t always be kids and people drift. Last concentrate on doing one thing at a time and do it well. Multi tasking can lead to anxiety.
- Phones can be our greatest enemies or our greatest friends. They provide several benefits but at the same time can prevent us from enjoying life.
- The distraction from a cellphone is more than a casual annoyance because a phone’s algorithm even to the notifications are designed to get our attention.
- Healthy living today is an exercise in self-awareness because although we have the tools to live well as well as the knowledge, reactivity and habit catches up with us.
“Phones disrupt sleep, not only because of their light that stimulates our brains to stay awake, but because we get wrapped up in using them to watch shows, text, and otherwise remain plugged in past our ideal bedtime.”
