Technological advances have come along in leaps and bounds in the past decade alone. Our world is ever changing and being shaped by the rapidly evolving technology available to us.
Not only can we connect with people easier using the phone, email, Facebook, Snapchat and other forums we have the other side of technology that saves lives. As technology advances we have seen many more lives saved from illnesses that previously we did not have the technology to cure.
So whilst technology seems to be an amazing addition to our everyday lives, it’s getting harder to ignore the downsides of all the technological advances we have available to us.
We are seeing the emergence of ‘Technostress’ where people are struggling to be constantly available. Technostress encapsulates the feeling of how technology causes frustration, stress and lack of sleep. We have ready access to our emails, work emails, text messages, phone calls both from our mobiles and landlines, social media through a variety of forums and the list goes on.
Just because we can do all of these things at a touch of a button and within seconds, doesn’t mean we should. To monitor whether you need a technology detox ask yourself, when your phone pings do you stop what you are doing to check that message, even if you are in the middle of family time? You might feel like you can control your behaviour but if you watch your habits closely, you will probably notice otherwise. Does work and home life seem to be one blurred space where you will be checking emails and doing some work in your down-time?
If this sounds like you it’s time to take control of your technology and unplug. Power-down and take time out to actually smell the roses, learn to treat our time and concentration as valuable. Find solitude, regroup, and find some inner peace. Life at its best is what is happening right in front of you.
If you are finding it hard to shut out all the exterior noise of life and technology The Float Space provides you an ideal solution to unplug.
