Technology Limitation: Giving Yourself a Healthy Dose

In this day and age, technology is everywhere, dominating our lives with ease and, for some, dictating one’s very actions.  Smart Phones and laptops with wifi can be seen in the hands of almost every individual in the United States; many people have gone so far as to say that “I feel absolutely naked without my phone”, since they spend most of their time glued to their phones, texting away their day(s) without a care.

When is “too much” really too much?  I’d have to say that the crowd who say they feel “naked” without their phones or laptops epitomize the meaning of “too much technology.”  If you cannot go without texting someone (or even doing anything on your phone, for that matter) for at least an hour, then it’s time to start thinking about using technological devices less, and more time doing things that are more productive: reading, socializing in-person, and other methods that take you away from the “almighty screen.”  That’s not to say you should give up on technological usage altogether, but like all good things, it’s best in moderation.

The problem facing society today is not one of “I don’t want to use tech stuff in moderation”, it’s “It is physically impossible for me to use anything in moderation, let alone my cell phone or laptop.”  Will this change?  Time will tell…
