TECHNOLOGY ADDICTION

Technology has become an essential part of our daily lives , in all spheres from entertainment, education , medical field, travel, lifestyle etc, to the extent life without technology has become unimaginable. There seems to be no bar to the age groups and gender accessing technology.

Technology may have made the world smaller and more accessible however  it is not without its disadvantages . One aspect that is fearsome is the addiction to technology and the impact on an individuals behaviour.

Symptoms of addiction –

Frequent use of facebook

A feeling of euphoria while on the Web

Social withdrawal

Loss of interest in activities that don’t involve a computer, phone or gadget

Feelings of restlessness when unable to go online

Ignoring the real world and more interested in virtual reality

Technology addiction is an umbrella term that may include addictive behavior to cybersex and online porn; video gaming; gambling; eBay and other online auctions or shopping; social media; excessive texting; or smartphone overuse as well as information overload.

Children who suffer from internet addiction have an increased risk of depression, problems at school, obesity and carpel tunnel syndrome.

Social media and networking have become a playground to release emotions, spread unwanted information, create fear psychosis, boost egos, cause unnecessary flutter, and directly or indirectly this works on the self-esteem of an individual .

Online shopping apps and sites have resulted in many shopaholics to purchase from the comfort of their phones and homes. This has resulted in a compulsive buying disorder with all the temptations online from different portals.

Similarly eating disorders  is on the rise through food porn. The different yummyilicious and exotic visual treats posted by restaurants literally makes one drool!. The food and delivery portals aid with quick delivery of orders to enable customers succumb to their temptations.!

Well this is a trap …caught in a web of sights, lights and colours that work on your mind and make you live in an imaginary world of deception .
