Gadget Detox Nowadays, gadgets have become such an addiction.
“Nowadays, gadgets have become such an addiction that, children have become a reason for irritation, and most parents victims of agitation.”
To begin with, it seems impossible to live without gadgets. Just like our body needs detox, similarly, we need a gadget detox as well. Reading about this new kind of detox also needs a gadget, metaphorically and literally true! Do we really need this rejuvenation? Indeed, in this present age when everything is dependent on technology, we can plan one day of the week gadget-free. You all must have heard about ‘Gadget Free Sunday’ but hardly we make an attempt to stay away from gadgets.
The youth is familiar with memes and a highly viral meme showcased that four family members are sitting in the same room but all of them are busy in their pseudo-technical life. Have you ever thought that what we are missing due to the overuse of gadgets? India is a country rich in its cultural and traditional values but now how often do we sit together and play some old-school games such as ludo, carrom-board, hide and seek, etc.? A huge number of family members are no longer connecting together in the way they used to which is resulting in ‘emotional damage.’ Emotional damage….you must have laughed!
Living a life is not that difficult but yes, living encapsulating happiness is something that is turning to a lesser degree. Let us try to spend some time without gadgets and note whether our life is changing or not.
