ARE WE ENSLAVED WITH OUR PHONES?

smart phones

Are you so attached to your phone?Do you have to answer all phone calls,reply all text messages and mails in your phone regardless of what you are doing or whom you are with?Most of us multitasking mobile phone operations with dinner or in a meeting.

The phone has become part and parcel of us in such a way that we feel uncomfortable and incomplete when we are not in company of our phone.Phones slavery has led to poor relationships or break-up since we spend much of our time on phones forgetting our partners.Poor performance at work places and face to face interactions have also reduced since all our stuff can now be performed by just a single click on our phones.Lack of knowledge and laziness is also experienced by our teenagers since we sorely depend on platforms like GOOGLE and forget our books.

Believe it or not we are all slaves to our phones,and if we don’t manage this our phones will continue doing us more harm than good. This is because cellphones are taking a significant part of our attention.

Cell phones are literally masters of distraction and they can take your attention away from just about anything instantly and consistently.

YOU SHOULD STOP BEING USED BY YOUR CELLPHONEsearch

Stop allowing your cellphone to hold your attention and mind hostage. It is time to reclaim your attention span.

Now, this doesn’t mean that every once in a while you can’t make an exception and take a call or check an e-mail while you are doing something else. The problem is when switching back and forth from one task to cell phone management is your standard operating procedure. And, if we notice this is one of our bad habits, we need to start work on changing it.

5 Tips To Help Free You From Being Held Hostage By Your Cellphone:

  1. Turn off the ringer from time to time.
    As scary as that may sound, there are just sometimes you shouldn’t be interrupted. Reserve blocks of times to devote your complete attention to things you need to get done, your kids, your spouse, your driving! Turn your ringer off during holidays and other family or alone time so you can really engage and enjoy those experiences.
  2. Turn off your notification light.Make a leap of faith and realize everything will not explode just because you don’t instantly know when an e-mail or text message comes in. Yes, this may take some getting used to, but, it really is liberating and allows you to decide the best time to read e-mails and texts instead of always checking your phone every time you notice the notification light flashing.
  3. Use your cell phone; don’t let it use you.
    It’s great that you can do just about everything on your cellphone, but when you pick it up to use it, decide what you are going to do, use it, and get out. If you are going to return e-mails, then don’t end up surfing around the Internet. Have a plan every time you pick up your cell phone and stick to it.
  4. Screen your calls and e-mails.
    Prioritize paying attention to who you are with or what you are currently doing. Take a look at who is trying to contact you and decide if you really need to respond right away. No one really knows whether or not you are available so you can decide to not answer your cell phone unless it really is necessary.
  5. Reserve blocks of time to check your messages and respond.
    Take periods of time to check and return all your messages. Perhaps you have a block of time you take every morning, afternoon, and evening. This way your messages don’t accumulate and you can be fairly confident you are not going to miss anything really time sensitive because you are checking your messages regularly. If you are a heavy user, you may need to have more check-ins throughout the day. Figure out what works best for you, but the key is to not consistently and continually check messages throughout the day.If you are interested in really getting the most out of all your experiences, increasing your productivity and being less stressed and overwhelmed, start paying attention to how you are using your cellphone. You will be amazed at the positive impact that managing your cellphone in the right way will have on everything you do.
