  2. 2. WHAT’S GOING ON?
  3. 3. - Fighting phone addiction and distraction - What’s going on? It’s been 10 years since the launch of the first smartphone (17 March, 2017) • 7.1 billion smartphones have been produced since 2007. • More than 60 different elements are commonly used in the manufacturing of smartphones. While the amount of each element in a single device may seem small, the combined impacts of mining and processing these precious materials for 7 billion devices is significant. • In 2014 alone, e-waste from small IT products like smartphones was estimated to be 3 million metric tons. Less than an estimated 16 percent of global e-waste is recycled. • Only two (Fairphone and LG G5) of 13 models reviewed had easily replaceable batteries. This means consumers are forced to replace their whole devices when the battery life starts to dwindle. • Since 2007, roughly 968 terawatt hours (TWh) has been used to manufacture smartphones, which is nearly the same as one year’s power supply for India (973 TWh in 2014). • At end-of-life, current design makes disassembly difficult, including the use of proprietary screws and glued in batteries; therefore, smartphones are often shredded and sent for smelting when “recycled.” Given the small amounts of a wide diversity of materials and substances in small devices, smelting is inefficient, or ineffective, at recovering many of the materials.

  30. 30. - Fighting phone addiction and distraction - Mashable… “What exactly is the big problem with screens? Previous studies have pointed the finger at the blue light emitted by all LED screens, which has been found to interfere with production of the sleep hormone melatonin in the brain.” “First, you have less time for real-world interactions when you're ogling your iPhone all day. Second, some aspects of social media can make people feel excluded, like seeing all your friends post pictures from a party you didn't know about.”
  31. 31. - Fighting phone addiction and distraction - THE NEW YORK TIMES “We are spending far too much of our time doing things that don’t really matter to us.” Both in and outside her practice, she has encountered many people who have become “disconnected from what really matters, from what makes us feel nourished and grounded as human beings.” “Posture doesn’t just reflect our emotional states; it can also cause them” "60 percent of the adults said they keep their cellphones next to them when they sleep"

  34. 34. - Fighting phone addiction and distraction - THE HUFFINGTON POST… “Nearly 20 percent of young adult smartphone users between the ages of 18 and 34, and about 10 percent of older adults, reported using their smartphones during sex” Whether you realize it or not, leaving your phone on or nearby can create a sense of hypervigilance, an experience often associated with posttraumatic stress disorder that involves feeling constantly tense or on guard. Being alert for incoming phone calls, text messages or emails prevents the body from achieving the desired state of total relaxation.

The ability to identify and connect with your partner’s emotions is absolutely critical to a sustainable, satisfying relationship.

  41. 41. - Fighting phone addiction and distraction - Irresistible… “These miraculous devices have drastically improved our access to information and our ability to communicate, yet their extraordinary magnetism clearly has some detrimental effects, particularly for today’s youth, many of whom have grown up with near-constant access to this technology. Alter offers strategies for how we can mitigate the damaging effects of addictive products on the well-being of ourselves and our children.”
  42. 42. - Fighting phone addiction and distraction - La Gran Adicción - The greatest addiction “The collaborative / participatory Internet, which is mostly the modality in which we are living, seeks our dependence. Being almost entirely empty platforms that are nourished by our content, it interests us to be at all times connected. This dynamic is facilitated by "smart" phones, which have caused us to be constantly available and nurturing the network. This state of hyperconnection carries with it its problems, which we are beginning to see. We have the capacity for attention, process in depth and even socialization.”
  43. 43. - Fighting phone addiction and distraction - The Power of NOW “Watch any plant or animal and let it teach you acceptance of what is, surrender to the Now. Let it teach you Being. Let it teach you integrity. Let it teach you how to live and how to die, and how not to make living and dying into a problem.
 
 Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.” “Time isn't precious at all, because it is an illusion.”

  56. 56. - Fighting phone addiction and distraction - 1- Is this NOT a PARADOX? "Cell-phone use is a good example of what Mick and Fournier (1998) referred to as “a paradox of technology”. The use of modern smart-phones can be both freeing and enslaving at the same time."
 The invisible addiction: Cell-phone activities and addiction among male and female college students. José De-Sola Gutiérrez, Fernando Rodríguez de Fonseca, and Gabriel Rubio (2014)
  57. 57. - Fighting phone addiction and distraction - 2- Not yet being recognized… “Digital” addictions—to things like the Internet, video games, social media and smartphones or other technology—are increasingly common but widely misunderstood. Despite not yet being recognized by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (the DSM), experts are increasingly warning of the risks of various types of technology addiction. The claim that things like the Internet or Facebook can be genuinely addictive—in the same way as drugs, alcohol or gambling—is often met with suspicion. After all, you can’t just say that somebody who uses something a lot is addicted to it on that basis alone. However, the more you find out about digital addictions, and how addiction works on the whole, the less easy it is to ignore suggestions that we’re moving toward a new type of addiction epidemic.
  58. 58. - Fighting phone addiction and distraction - 3- The potential dangers have multiplied… Just like an addiction to drugs or alcohol can, can have an adverse financial effect on a person Have a negative impact on communications skills can lead to issues with self-esteem There are possible long term health risks linked to it can suffer greater anxiety when there is a loss have an impact on sexual behavior Can interfere with regular school work and activities or with their job and affect productivity phone- zones are likened to non- smoking areas and make addicts feel stigmatized may have poorer listening Drive sleep deprivation require more and more use by the addict in order to achieve that pleasant feeling and feeling of relaxation that they have come to expect through use Source: addictiontips.net
