Let’s face it living in a highly technical world where we have everything at our fingertips is pretty amazing. We all love having the latest gadgets. We can find people, places and things instantly. We can get news, weather and gossip at the tap of a finger. And we can talk to people anywhere, anytime and even see them now.
With all the perks and gains of technology, what are we missing out on? How does being plugged in constantly affect our health and emotional well-being? Is the pressure of responding to that text, FB post, or email creating more pressure in our lives than we realize? Also are our personal relationships being effected?
It’s a valid question and also the one that’s being written and studied all over the globe. Your smart phone, as wonderful as it is, and as much time as you think it’s saving you, can actually be adding tons of stress to your life than you think. It’s also killing the ability for people to connect face to face.
