According to my research & observation, a disease ‘Smartfluenza’ is increasing, very speedily and secretly, among us. If we will not know about it particularly its remedies then it will create further Mental / Physical disorders and our lives will be affected very badly.
Definition: ‘Smartfluenza’ is the name that is given by me and it describes a disease, related to incorrect and excessive use of Smartphones.
Smartphones: It is a greatest and an agreed truth that this device is the top most useful device and no one can decrease its importance & usefulness. Sometimes, it works more than that of our good friend. But it should also be remembered that any incorrect / excessive use of any Useful gadget, can make it Useless.
Causes: Anyone can be suffered from this disease, due to incorrect / excessive use of Smartphones.
Symptoms & Remedies
Attention & Respect
We give Attention & Respect to our phones instead of people. In addition to Phone Calls and Texting, other Communication / Messenger / Social Media Apps consistently keep us engaged and we don’t pay proper attention to people that they deserve for it. Specially, when we interact with someone particularly with our closed ones, we usually don’t pay them, full attention but we keep continue using / viewing different notifications on the phone. In this manner, we make someone feels that we are not giving him attention, value and respect. Think it from your end, if someone behaves in a same manner, he talks with you but he looks on his phone again n again and he doesn’t give you, proper attention then what awkward and disrespectful feeling you will have.
To avoid this problem, we should not use so many similar Communication / Messenger / Social Media Apps but we should use only a few, we should keep their notifications off, particularly while meeting with people so that we can give the required Attention & Respect to them that they require, expect and deserve.
Goals & Objectives
Many of the times, due to excessive use of the phone, we don’t give focus to our Goals & Objectives and we don’t spare our daily time, dedicatedly. This can badly affect our achievements over our Goals & Objectives.
To avoid this, we should not use our phones during our daily dedicated time over our Goals & Objectives.
Wastage of Time, Efforts and Energy
We always see each other, constantly busy in the different unnecessary discussions / chats / exchanging information / data, over the phone. This is totally wastage of our Time, Efforts and Energy that if we put to somewhere else on some positive things then it will be worthwhile for all of us. Consistent use of phone also stops us from other healthy / physical activities like Sports, Exercises etc.
To avoid this, take yourself away from those kinds of unnecessary forums / groups / activities over the phone.
Peace, Pleasure and Relaxation
Due to excessive use of the phone, our Peace, Pleasure and Relaxation have gone.
To avoid this, in addition to our sleeping time, if possible then we should keep our phone on vibration / silent for three hours daily and we should attend emergency Phone Calls / Texting only. Then, we should try to spend these three precious hours for us ourselves, our beloved ones, our family members, our friends, our colleagues etc. Believe it, I can guarantee that these three hours will provide us a priceless & worthwhile peace, pleasure and relaxation.
GET BACK TO YOUR BEAUTIFUL LIFE WITH BALANCED, OPTIMIZED AND PROPER USE OF SMARTPHONES…
