Breathing time

Time eating – #smartphoneaddict

by Patrick, Maximilian, Sandra, Leona and Julia

The alarm clock of my smartphone rings. A number of new messages light up. I answer them.

Check my Facebook timeline, Instagram, watch the newest trends on Twitter…

Shit, I have to hurry up and instead of having a breakfast, I only can pick up an apple. As fast as possible, I rush to the train station, hoping, to get my train. Hope dies last.

Success! Check my Facebook timeline, Instagram, watch the newest trends on Twitter... By answering new messages, I fade out the environment. My smartphone is the only thing that can grab my attention.

In the very nick of time, I jump out of the train. Today, I’m only ten minutes late.

Is it worth getting in trouble by using my smartphone all the time? Would I really miss important information if I didn’t do so? Is it even possible to keep my hands off my smartphone?

I think the main problem is that we don’t use social media thoughtfully.

We lose ourselves between digital experiences that other users post or are more busy with documenting the moment than really enjoy the time. We spend every minute of our time watching the little screen in our hands, rather than making something useful, something real, something that matters.

Why not meeting our friends instead of texting the whole time with them? And if it comes to a meeting, we should enjoy our time with our friends instead of texting with other friends or checking the Facebook timeline at the same time.

But we can’t concentrate on one thing because we always think that we would miss something.

A smartphone is a useful gimmick which allows us to get information or share information with others, but it should never be the main part of our thoughts and acting behavior. We shouldn’t spend too much time on typing, clicking or sliding on the screen. It shouldn’t become an overwhelming monster that controls us.

So the most important fact is not to overdo it and don’t become a time eating smartphone addict.

  1. Hey there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price? Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!|

  2. Right away I am ready to do my breakfast, once having my breakfast coming yet again to read additional news.|

  3. Piece of writing writing is also a fun, if you know afterward you can write otherwise it is difficult to write.|
