If we look at the statistics, how many times the average people are using their smartphone to look after the emails, Facebook … The UK Kids are checking 150 times/ day their smartphone… and even 69% of the kids complain that their parents spend too much time on their mobile device at home.
Half of all UK adults admit to being ‘completely hooked‘ on their smartphones.
Through this addiction the people:
lose the ability of critical thinking (this is good for the politician);
lose the attention for their environment including their kids, spouse, and friends;
lose their focus;
live in an unreal world;
escape from their reality/ problems; forget their feelings;
live like a Zombie…
Imagine you are together with a guy, who is texting and checking his smartphone… Do you think that this guy will give his attention to you, or maybe that you just disturb him, or maybe you start also to work on your smartphone?
Maybe we want:
to fill such dark hole in us,
or we are bored, looking for excitement…
or run away from our fears
or inside depression; – when we checking our smartphone.
We should ask ourselves, do we want to become a slave to our smartphone?
Why we want the distraction of our smartphone?
A high performer like J. T. Fox is checking only two times a day his emails, Facebook.
Everybody has only 24hours a day, and we all have a limited time on this planet… How would it be, if we start to digital detox?
This means even High Performer doing that, switch off our Internet, smartphone in the middle of the day… and look what we really want or start to feel our feelings, our body. Inhale and exhale deeply. Live and feel the here and now…
