ADDICTED TO THE MOBILE?


[Based on info from "The Travelling Teachers" blog. "Are you a cell phone addict?"]

A new form of addiction has appeared in the last decade with the development of technologies and the great variety of mobile phones available: it's the mobile phone addiction. It's a widespread problem but especially among the younger generations.
Youngsters are using their mobile phones when they're bored, tired, lazy, angry or lonely...
Symptoms:
- Constant use of the mobile phone (even in situations which aren't considered acceptable).
- Loss of the sense of time while surfing online.
- Prefer spending time with the mobile phone than with family & friends.
- Feeling restless when the mobile phone can't be used.
- Wishing to have the latest model in the market or apps.
Physical side-effects:
- Finger, neck and back tension.
- Itchy eyes.
- Insomnia.
- Weight & diet changes.
- Fatigue.
- Distracted attention, difficulties to focus.
- Problem and study failures.
- Loss of interest in hobbies, sports and outdoor activities, which implies social loneliness, loss of friends and isolation.
