A majority of us have them. We work and play from them. But, are we connected to something that isn’t the best thing for us?
Despite the name, smart phones have allowed humans to make stupid choices. Stupid choices like, texting and driving, committing stupid crimes to video for the sake of humor and infidelity are just to name a few.
The devices have had benefits as well, being able to locate, look up and connect when being used for good can be a very good thing.
There is good and bad; like any magic, smart phones, social networking and apps come with a price. Studies have just proven the majority of subjects that devote 1 hour daily, “plugged in” dropped their I.Q. by 10 points. Those participants that spent over an hour, were close to dropping 10 points an hour. Those participants that used their smart phones for business or mindful things were less to not effected at all.
Moral of the story. Work out your brain properly. Only devote a small amount of time to social networks if possible. Stay away from mindless activities on the phone for long periods of time. And, when it comes to the kids… Schedule structured time for them to learn and interact face to face with family and peers.
There is a big difference from learning information like recipes on the internet than, scrolling through what someone ate today.
