Young+men+and+women+using+mobile+phonesAre you addicted to texting, emails and social media? It is a difficult habit to break, especially when you’re bored or not doing anything or curious to know what is going on the social media world! We are spending less time interacting with other fellow human beings. When walking down a street, people pass you by without looking up from their mobile phones or when standing at a busy road intersection, they use that time to look at their mobile phones. No one notices things going around them! I have even seen people at tram and train terminus climbing on board the tram, still looking at their mobiles, getting onto the tram/train still looking at their mobiles! I have come across people walking across a busy street, not looking left or right, but with their heads bowed down looking at their mobile!

Another health concern is caring for your eyes. Recently I had to do research on eye sickness and what steps to take to care for your eyes. Our eyes are so precious, you would only know how precious they were if you suddenly experienced vision loss! Think about it! Even before computers and mobile phones, humans do experience some eye problems as they age, whether its cataract, macular degeneration or retina detachment. Some people experience retina detachment – suddenly without warning! The only way to correct this problem is to have surgery and even then full vision is not guaranteed!

The other safety risk is on the road, being at risk to drivers, to yourself and to others, if you are walking across a busy road, preoccupied with reading your mobile phone! How can you not know that a car driver will not be able to use his brakes to prevent a collision?

I have also seen drivers behind the wheel of a car, driving with one hand on the wheel and the other on their mobile phone, looking at their mobile phone, instead of on the road ahead on a very busy road intersection!

Does the Future Hold a Digital Revolution?

How can we overcome this addiction? Anybody have any answers? I look forward to your comments. Thank you!

May God be with you on your journey today!
