In one of the articles published in News Version, Deignan gives three reasons why individuals must pursue a healthy relationship with their technology.
Multiple screens bring distractions
The ability of computer users to concentrate or instead focus on a task at hand has decreased with time. The growth of social media sites, ability to stream videos and music, and play games, not mentioning the presence of phones and tablets have made the situation worse. While you aren’t being asked to get rid of all these technological solutions, you should nevertheless stay alive to the consequences associated with them. Being aware helps you to stay in control of your digital habits and consequently, improve your productivity at work.
Technology changes your thinking
The fact that the brain is malleable is undebatable. As such, humans must pay attention to the manner in which technology interferes with their thinking. Technology has a way of conditioning the brain to focus on the information in a very different way than reading does. Technology is characterized by all types of distractions such as emails, text messages, notifications and updates and so on. Of utmost importance is to understand the importance of diversifying tasks each day. Avoid spending the whole day using your devices and instead, look for other ways of consuming information. For instance, reading helps to develop your memory and imagination. At the same time, technology offers the benefits of improving reaction times as well as visual-spatial capabilities.
Avoid being addicted to your devices
While it is not the case for all forms of technological tools, it is true for some, such as smartphones. If you aren’t careful, you will reach to a point where you cannot live or work without your Smartphone, and this can affect your productivity. Robert Deignan advises people to be aware of this and put the necessary precautionary measures in place.
