Do you have ‘Nomophobia’ tendency?

Nomophobia -The term is an abbreviation for “no-mobile-phone phobia“,

Cambridge Dictionary says

Fear or worry at the idea of being without your mobile phone or unable to use it. 

Nomophobia

It’s lack of control over the use of a cell phone,a kind of dependence.

It includes

1.frequent checking of the cell phone,

2.Not bothering about-face to face interaction during discussions.

3.Using the cell phone in an inappropriate place.

4.Feeling restless or anxious without cell phone.

5 Avoiding social interactions.

6.Decline in performance.

7.Easily distracted by e mails, notifications etc.

8.Can become restless when

  • Lose the phone
  • Run out of battery
  • Have no network coverage
  • Can result in panic attacks.
  • Depression rarely.

Researches have shown abnormal changes happening in the brain due to both the excessive use of  cell phone and also because of nomophobia.

Is there any solution for nomophobia ?

All the people whomever I came across I put this question and the answer invariably was ,they are not addicted to mobile phone,and at the same breath they tell me that they can’t imagine life without mobile phone even for a single minute.

I am not sure what exactly they are trying to convey.

I guess there is no proper solution.

Solutions available on the internet are of not much help.

Can you suggest some practical remedies ?

Alcohol

“A bottle of wine contains more philosophy than all the books in the world.” Louis Pasteur

I told my wife that a husband is like a fine wine; he gets better with age. The next day, she locked me in the cellar.coolfunnyquotes.com

 

A glass of beer shortens your life by one minute, a glass of wine by two minutes, and a day of work by seven to ten hours.

I have no Self-ie Control

I don't have self-ie control

With the selfies, a photographer has finally found his place in a photograph. Amit Kalantri

Professional Photographers can make a real kill,because of selfies.

As an amateur photographer,I realized that selfie makes one’s life miserable.

1.Selfies distort your face by 30 % .The truth is you look ugly.people are dejected for this and try to avoid the world.

2.Selfie face distortion making people do nose jobs and plastic surgeons have become busy .Some body even inventing app( commercialization),which is supposed to correct the distortion

3. People becoming obsessed and in the process getting depressed.

4. As a medical professional,I can tell you that regular usage of selfie can give you SELFIE WRIST, an emerging hazard in this digital era.Selfie wrist causes pain,numbness and tingling sensation in the hand.( carpal tunnel syndrome)
Doctor warns-rise in cases of selfie wrist

5.Hundreds and thousands are getting killed while trying to take selfies with India in the lead,followed by Russia.USA and Pakistan.

When diet is wrong,Medicine is of no use .When Diet is correct, there is no need of Medicine.

Ayurvedic Proverb

But sadly, many times we love to over eat, eat wrong food,and express lack of time for daily exercises. Many other  excuses are readily available.

Some of my friends who are diabetic,regulary eat sweets ( which is forbidden),and they come up with statements saying that their sugar is under control since they take their diabetic medicines regularly ,as if the diabetic medicines give them the licence to over eat the sweets.

Some other friends with Hypertension ( High blood Pressure ) eat food rich in salt, like pickles,salt laced chips etc.( salt is restricted for hypertensive patients).

They happily tell me that they are care free since medicines they take to control the BP, will also take care of their salt in the food.

 

What is your type ? Do You eat food and medicine also like my friends ?

If you ask me, yes,I find many times difficult to resist the food,over eat some times and take pancreatic enzyme tablets for better digestion,whenever I felt I overindulged.

What are your thoughts on this subject ?

Thanks for going through the post.

Dear Selfie you’re my True killfie

Selfie deaths

pixabay derivative Moritzin & BogdanaLS

Looks like milleneals are outsmarting  the Greek Mythology character Narcissus with their selfie obsession.Who doesn’t admire  own face ??

You may even call it ‘Selfiecide”

Twitter has hashtag   Killfie

Is this an obscession or passion or ego or attitude or some psychological disorder(OCD)…difficult to pin point.

Two types of Killfies

  1. Single selfie causing single death.
  2. Single selfie causing multiple deaths.

No idea why maximum deaths are happening in India !

Is there any such thing called positive addiction ?

Positive addiction,addiction,negative addiction

The word ADDICTION sends jitters down the spines.

I know you started thinking of drugs,smoking,alcohol,gambling,sex,pornography,food,video games…..and the list goes on.

Human being is not immune to ‘weakness’.The greatness lies making the weakness into positive Strength.

Have we to think of addiction only in negative term ?

Can addiction be ‘Positive’ ?

Can’t we have ‘positive addiction’ ?

Example- People in order to to maintain a healthy life style may indulge in having

1.Vitamins.2.Fruits.3.Regular exercises.4.Body building 5 .consumption of water.6.Taking up the job, you are passionate.7.Reading.8.Spending more of family time.9.Dancing.etc.etc

Positive addiction is supposed to bring health ,happiness,strength,famiy bond,contentment,appreciation of the magnanimity of the Almighty,improve the wisdom and spirituality,above all bring the ‘Feel good factor ‘.

Remember not to over do it.Otherwise it becomes negative addiction.

I feel one can have ‘positive addiction’ without the component of ‘Negative consequences

Finally a question to the readers….

Can you name ‘healthy behaviour’ as ‘Positive Addiction’ ?

Is not ‘positive addiction’ contradicting the very definition of addiction ?

According to Wikipedia Addiction is a brain disorder characterized by compulsive engagement in rewarding stimuli despite adverse consequences”.

Please enlighten me further.
