Cell phones are making people dumber

Have you ever crossed by an alley where people were glued to their mobile screens? Or any scenario where you would be waiting patiently for anyone’s call, text or an email just to start a discussion and get rid of boredom? These scenarios are commonly seen in today’s world as technology is spreading its wings in the entire world. There is a possibility; if you become aware of certain things about the usage of cell phones then probably you will make changes in your lifestyle or how to use your cell phones more effectively.

As per the study, there are over 6 million mobile phone users in the entire world. This huge chunk of generation going crazy after latest gadgets and gizmos show us that cell phones are making people dumber day by day. Some people are unable to understand that there will be long-term health risks if we continue to neglect our health and focus our entire attention on this 4-inch screen.

Many of us might have seen people carrying their earphones all the time, playing loud music or just texting through the entire journey. They are not even aware if there is any vehicle passing by or is there anyone trying to have a conversation with them. So, have we become slaves our latest and most prized possession, cell phones?

If you ask yourself then you would also say yes. Though there is no doubt that cell phones, gadgets, and other electronic items have made our life easy, but at what cost? We all do recognize that technology has made us more reliant on the machines rather being of our brain power. Now people prefer googling rather using their intellect or brain power first for any challenging task. Whether you are the student is searching for the answer to your question or a business professional searching for the best market strategy.

We do not talk much now – There was a time when you walked through the door of your neighbors they used to talk and have the healthy discussion but nowadays people are rarely aware of things happening next door. They are more concerned about likes, comment and share rather being virtually with a best friend or family. What everyone does in the first place is to Google and gets some information about the topic either through cell phones or through the computer. When people become more aware of their happening and about their self then only they could realize that one need to strike a balance between use and reliance of cell phones. This level of awareness is possible through awareness and knowledge.
