Guess what? The world day without smartphone
The world day without mobile phone is a set of three days during which, according to its promoter, the French writer Phil Marso, the public is invited to think about the use of mobile phones. Limited to February 6 when it was created in 2001, and now it runs from February 6 to 8.
Those days are chosen to celebrate our disconnection from mobile phones as the most dangerous electronic devices for our health. With this nice initiative we will discuss, with others and oneself, the place that those smartphones takes in our lives.
The smartphone sometimes causes behaviors that can eventually be a source of stress or anxiety. Not all the time, of course, but according to some specialists, they detail some particular impacts of the smartphones on young people.
The main pitfall of the hyper-connected persons is to no longer enjoy the present moment, by constantly photographing / sharing / commenting or what they are doing. As a result, they are no longer connected with their five senses, just spending their time getting in and out, looking for the eyes of others to say ‘The moment I’m living is great’ or ‘what on my dish is delicious’.
Another pitfall to avoid: a certain form of modern bovarism, which would consist of finding the life of others more great than ours.
