Us millennials are the generation most addicted to technology. This is because, social networks were invented when we were young, and we have basically adapted to them. Not only Facebook, now we also have Instagram, Snapchat and so on… It is not an issue, they are mostly great tools to connect with other people, the main issue here is when we connect all the time. Even though there is no need to talk to people.
We have that impulsive thing that makes us talk and talk leaving no topics for when it comes to seeing someone in person. The other thing that is happening is that we are losing the opportunity to enjoy some activities outdoors without starring at the screen. We need to change that ASAP! Here are some helpful tips to try and stop your technology addiction.
If you work with your computer, try to focus in that and stop doing some other things. This will make you use it only in your working hours without prolong it too much. If you mix things up, you'll be in front of the screen twice the time you needed.
People use their cellphone all the time, we need to start counting how many hours of the day do we lose starring at the screen just scrolling your Facebook feed or Instagram pictures.
Read a book
Read a book! Why don't you replace half of the time you stare at the screen with your favorite book? You can definitely keep your mind sharp and rest from your work day with something a little bit more interesting.
Whats App is a great app. I think it is even the most used application of the time. However, even though we love sending voice messages we also know that sometimes it takes us double the time. If you just call someone to say something it is almost in all the cases the best choice you could take! Start calling again! It will also decrease your anxiety levels.
Try changing your kids computer games for something else. Maybe it is better to buy table games instead so that they get a mix. Sometimes they forget the real world with those games. You need to be careful.
This, were cool and great games too. Twister can be a little to 90's by now. However, I remember it was really fun. You should introduce your kids games like this one. Sometimes this type of games are healthier and even funnier. They can even play it outdoors!
