MOBILE PHONE ADDICTION | SELFITIS
Whether it is office, hospital, shopping malls, roads or just the home, what is one thing that always with us? Our mobile phone!
The first and foremost role that mobile phones plays in our daily lives is that they provides us an easy and fast way of communication. Mobile phones have really changed the way of communication. Phones are the most used communication tool today but they are not limited to communication purpose now-a-days.
Mobile phones are considered to be the helping hands of people because through mobile phones we can easily access the internet for fetching information and keeps us access to social media and updated about the news. But more than a helping hand it has now become a hinder hand and if we see, we will notice that all these activities like accessing internet and being active on social media, makes a person addicted to mobile phones as they always check their phones first right after waking up.
You have ever thought that why people are so addicted to their phones?
This is simply because they are expecting to see something new through their phones like status updates from their friends, new apps, new messages and so on.
Mobile phones also encourages 'selfitis', the obsessive need of taking and posting selfies. Many of you must have heard news about people who take selfies at dangerous location and risk their life.
India holds number one position where large number of people dies because of taking selfies at dangerous locations.
Researchers categorised selfitis into three levels:
People who take selfies atleast three times a day, but do not post it on social media.
2. Accute phase
People who take selfies and post it on social media.
People, who have an uncontrollable urge to take selfies, and post it on social media atleast six times a day.
In a research, a scientist found that using too much mobile phones releases harmful radiations that can damage eighty-percentage of our brain cells.
Other technologically related mental health disorders which have been identified in recent years include 'nomophobhia', the fear of not being near a mobile phone.
The solution that can be made to avoid such activities is trying turning off notifications of messages, uninstall all the app that keeps on distracting you like instagram, facebook etc.
So, we concluded that the mobile phones do more harm than being good, therefore, it should be used only then, when it is required.
