    Being always connected is bad for our mind, but also for our body as the human being wasn’t made to be constantly immersed in radio or electromagnetic waves just like it wasn’t made to live under neons instead of the Sun.

    For a healthy life we should use electronic gadgets or things emitting waves as little as possible, for a healthy mind we should use social media as little as possible. We would also have much more free time and a more interesting life.

    Not that it’s always easy to do it. :)

    I think that 100% of the people should pay attention to this post Daisy. I know I am far too connected for my own good. :-)

    I agree with you, Daisy. I’m a social media addict. It’s not really healthy to do this all the time. I always have this headache and I feel like I don’t get a lot of healthy sunlight. This time, I will stop doing this during weekends.

    Great message! Social media is terribly addictive. Although I’m not up on the psychology of why we get so easily sucked in, it is certain that we do. Spending time online means you are not spending time off-line connecting with people face to face. Those in-person relationships are real, they force us to be more honest about who we are in our relationships instead of hiding behind a Facebook persona. Any time we escape from having to face real life relationships, allows us to avoid them and avoid working on them. You are right about the message we send to our children when we are too busy watching the latest viral Facebook video to really listen to their needs. What does that tell them about how loved and valued they are? I bet if people honestly tracked how many minutes a day are spent on social media vs spent talking to family in person, they’d be shocked.
