ADDICTION…. What is it? Is it only a word or a disease? Are people only addicted to smoking, taking pills, alcohol, drugs etc.? I think most of the people, including children, are addicted to technology!
I want to share my views on this topic. How much does this addiction affect our daily routine in life? So let me start from a woman’s perspective, either as a career woman or a housewife.
Nowadays it's very common to have an account on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. Most of the ladies like to upload their daily status and their profile pics and because of that, they will sometimes burn their food or sometimes they ignore their daily house chores, which by the way, are actually necessary to keep a clean and healthy home.
This addiction causes the house atmosphere to change and because of it these types of mothers are becoming more distant from their children. The horrible fact is this, that these ladies are oblivious to this distance. Sometimes it's not enough to do only your house chores, your family needs your attention also.
Let's move on to men. Like women, men are also interested in technology. This interest can also result in addiction. While at work, this addiction can cause a lot of problems. Whenever they have some free time, they just rush towards their phones and computers to surf the net, or check on social media etc., instead of using this time to complete their remaining work. Not only this, they sleep late using their WhatsApp, Facebook and other social networks, and then they wake up early in the morning to go to work, which affects their health, or creates problems in completing their work related task on time.
Not only adults, children are also terribly addicted to technology! Today's generation, no matter if it's a 6-year-old child or a 13-year-old child, they need a smartphone in their hand. Is it good for their health? The mobile phone's radiations are very strong and can affect a human brain. They're harmful for adults also but because of their growing brain and body it's most harmful for the children. The problem that occurs is that the parents think that their child will advance more, be more knowledgeable and healthier through this technology, whereas it's not true at all.
This addiction, nowadays lives like a family member in one's house. It's not bad to use this technology, but as long as it's in a limited amount....
