Digital intoxication is real. Here’s why
The time has come to speak of digital intoxication: an excessive use of the most common digital tools, such as a computer, tablet or smartphone, to the point of dependency.
* Do you feel the need to pick up your phone without a reason during the dead moments of the day?* Do you keep your smartphone turned on and left on your nightstand when you go to bed?* Do you bring your phone with you into the bathroom because you are afraid you won’t hear it?
* The University of California discovered that those with dependency dedicate only 11 minutes to accomplishing a task before being distracted by digital activity.* You would need 120 minutes a day to recover the time wasted on digital distractions during work.* Students interrupted by digital tools during their study time decreased their exam performance by 20percent.
