Can we get addicted to technology?
Yes. Electronics stimulate our mental activity. It’s invigorating, it’s exciting, it’s addicting. It’a very serious problem facing the younger generations and the consequences are only starting to emerge.
The average person checks their phone about 100 times a day. Some of us spend all day at a computer. A friend of mine has a son who went AWOL. Nobody knew where he was. It wasn’t until a year and a half went by until they found him living in a one-room basement apartment. He’d been playing a global, interactive video game the entire time. They had to do an intervention to get him to stop.
What Helps Minds that are Over Stimulated from Technology?
Meditation will calm and slow the mind and help us generated a state of inner peace. It will bring us back to ourselves and remind us who we are. It takes a little discipline but the rewards are long-lasting and well worth it.
Ironically, technology can help us meditate and hopefully, those experiences will help us focus on the inner world and not on the technology itself.
Nature is life. Quiet time in nature will always bring you back to your center. Why? Because we are a product of nature. We naturally resonate to the rhythms of nature through the cycles of the sun, moon and the seasons. It’s where we can always find peace.
Read a Book…to Your Kids
Reading a book is wonderful because it stimulates the imagination in a way that a computer or phone can’t. Furthermore, if you read to your kids regularly it will create a deep and lasting family bond. Those will the memories your children will cherish forever—quality time spent together interacting.
I like activities that either get me outdoors or get me working with my hands in a creative way. There’s is a sport or activity for everyone. Get away from your devices and go have fun!
When is the last time you had a meaningful conversation with someone and made eye-to-eye contact? It seems to be becoming more rare. Quality human interaction always brings you back to your center. It’s a big part of why we are here.
Turn it off
Also, remember to turn off your technology from time to time. Go play outside, work in your garden, have an eye-to-eye conversation with someone, enjoy a pet, get creative.
