Today I'm going to talk about a piece of news which is connected with my area of studies. I decided to write about technology addiction, because I know it's very common and it happens a lot, even me haha.
The article began telling us, that all of us have suffering the effects of technology addiction sometimes. Remember when you needed to study, but suddenly you received a text message and you could't ignore it, so you stopped studying and read the message, and you do it again after two minutes, and then again and again. Maybe you don't see a problem here, but, a study of the University of Kent found every time we lose concentration, we re-read a portion of text before we can find the point where we were reading, and each interruption cause an increase of 17% in the total time we use to read the whole passage. An easy way to help to decrease the time we use for return to the point we were reading is to write a mark in that point, so we reduce in a 10% the time we use to return.
There'll always be distractions, but we can help ourselves to avoid these distractions, like turning off our phones or our computer. We also can do some concentration exercises using thought control to concentrate in an image for a period of time, and when we notice that we had lost concentration, we have to come back to the image as soon as we can.
So, be strong, you can... haha =)
