Re: Technology affecting mental health

Technology certainly makes it harder for me to get a move on. Although I can't blame my lack of motivation solely on technology, it doesn't help that it can be more interesting than whatever I should be doing.

How does technology hinderyou/make things harder?

 

Following on from what I said earlier... technology can be a good 'safe haven' in a situation you feel uncomfortable in but in the same way it can be sort of limiting. Like I'd just sit there looking on my phone instead of talking to people, if I didn't have my phone I may of, *may of* made small talk with somebody and felt a little more comfy

Also I watch way too much of The Office Smiley Tongue

Re: Technology affecting mental health

How does technology hinder you/make things harder?

 

Makes me kinda lazy sometimes. Like the app which tells you whether it's day or night outside.

I'll sometimes be content with socialising online and thus feel like it's enough and not leave the house. One thing I personally think is that the number of people who read books on paper rather than on a device is slowly dwindling. That counts as hindering, right? You become so accustomed to reading online that you forget the joys of buying a book from the store and bookmarking it.

 

Sorry, I'm not even sure that was relevant haha. Fell off on a tangent.

Re: Technology affecting mental health

yes i agree @RevzZ i know of small children who use devices more than looking at real books, i mean yeah it can helpful but when they grab a book and try swiping on it, yeah that isn't good
