I can’t imagine life without technology. I appreciate the many opportunities and conveniences it affords. On the other hand, it recently came to my attention that adverse effects are increasing from overuse of technology. Like most things, moderation is a necessary ingredient to keep balance. Researchers are documenting our society is spending too much time on computers and cell phones throwing us out of balance which is negatively affecting our emotional, mental and physical well-being.
Life without Technology
Daniel had a nervous breakdown and he felt that he needed to break away from his life of stress in order to heal. He made the decision to build a new life without technology. He shares his testimony in the following short video link about how free he feels “letting go” from the grasp of society.
Son experiencing life without technology
I told my son, Darrell, about the effects of overuse of computers and cell phones. Surprisingly, he decided to give up both to experience life without technology. The first thing I noticed was fewer dark entities were bothering Darrell, in fact, way fewer. I now believe a great number of dark entities are entering homes through modern electronics. I also noticed Darrell is calmer and less agitated since giving up technology. I think it is very likely because fewer dark entities are bothering my son and because of his calmer state of being, he has an increased chance to completely heal from his mental disorder.
Overuse of Technology
I have noticed it has become more difficult to get appointments with my son’s psychiatrist and therapist than it was two years ago. It is not unusual to wait 45-60 days instead of 30 days for psychiatrist’s appointments and instead of waiting two weeks for therapy appointments, it can be up to 30 days or longer. Mental health facilities are flooded with patients needing regular medications and therapies. I have attributed this increased decline in mental and emotional health to high-stress but I am beginning to understand spending too much time on cell phones and computers checking social media, emails, and doing business are also having adverse effects on the well-being of many.
Video games and porn
Because electronic devices are enticing, more people are becoming internet addicts spending hours playing violent video games or watching pornography (“Click Link” to learn about my porn research). This exposure to excessive violence, darkness, and hate is negatively affecting the mental and emotional well-being of many.
Texting and twittering
If you stop and observe, a high percentage of heads are looking downward texting and twittering rather than upward personally connecting and communicating with people around them. Studies show Facebook and Twitter promote jealousy and envy rather than contentment and confidence.
Stopping to find inner peace
Very few are stopping to take the time to find needed inner peace by exploring their thoughts, feelings, and emotions which promote all-around improved health.
Conclusion – Assess technology use
Studies show it would be wise for us all to assess the time we are spending on our cell phones and computers, and to make wise adjustments that will improve our overall well-being. It is very probable, you and I may enjoy looking up into the eyes of those around us more often.
