11 Ways High Tech Gadgets That Could Be Hurting You

Hail all gadget lovers who are inseparable from their smart devices. We know how much you love them and how much you must have waited to own them. The evolution of smart devices has undoubtedly changed our lives for the best, and we can’t imagine a day without calling out Alexa, Siri, or Hello Google. And even now you’re hooked to your phone, tab, or laptop reading our article! But all said and done, does living a complete ‘smart life’ have any adverse effects on our lives? sadly, plenty! We at Stylecraze made a list of ways high-end gadgets could cause more harm than make your life easier:

1. Computer Vision Syndrome

Be it work from home or offline work, you end up staring at a computer screen blankly for hours at the end of the day. Sadly, the human eye isn’t equipped to focus on the same spot for hours at a time. If you spend a significant amount of time at the computer screen you are likely to suffer from computer vision syndrome that includes tired eyes, eyestrain irritation, redness, blurred vision, and double vision (1). To combat the situation, a tinted lens could help to improve the difficulty of contrast and lessen the strain on your eyes.

2. Insomnia

If you struggle falling asleep every day, it’s time you check your screen time. Bright screens could disrupt the internal timer of your body (2). Even fun activities like video games and watching a movie late at night can be the cause for your sleepless nights.

3. Repetitive Stress Injuries

The frequent, tiny movements required to control a mouse and type at a keyboard may cause irritation to tendons, and swelling could put pressure on nerves (3). Just a half-hour of using a computer mouse can cause injuries to your forearm, shoulder, or hands.

4. Obesity

There is a close link between obesity and gadgets making your life easier, as both reduce movements. Smart gadgets make us spend all day sitting on our backs. Be it ordering food at our fingertips or not having to move to the switchboard to get the lights. Making life more relaxed has also reduced our physical activities significantly.

5. Hearing Damage

When we think of ear damage, it’s always the high volume and noise pollution we complain about, but what about the earphones always plugged in your ear canal? The better the quality of your device, the better your ears will be, but is that all? It is the duration of the noise that poses a threat to your ears. The higher the volume of your music, the more you are sabotaging your ability to hear different frequencies (5).

6. Destroys Your Concentration

If you are doing something relaxing like reading a book or just looking outside, and your phone rings, it blocks your memory from what you were doing and immediately calls your attention on the phone. While that is the whole point of having a phone, it also destroys your attention span and keeps you distracted from everything else happening in real life.

7. Can Trigger Asthma

Before you think about how gadgets could give you asthma, think of the amount of air pollution you are exposed to inside the closed door of your office building. Modern laser printers release tiny particles in the air that could easily be inhaled and cause congestion in your lungs (6). The next time you get a printer for your home, make sure you select the entirely safe one for the home environment.

8. Gives You The Bad Posture

Every time you criticize your banana posture in front of the mirror, you should know it’s not your spine’s fault; it’s the phone you have been diving into headlong! No matter how tempted you are to slouch down and check the notifications, remember, it will only make your back hurt more.

9. It May Stunt Your Imagination

While most artists use the internet on their devices for reference and study, in a way, it kills your imagination and makes you follow only what you see on the internet. This is particularly dangerous for children as they should rely on nothing but their imagination to source their creativity.

10. Technology Uses More Energy Than You Think

If you feel the gadgets you use are not responsible for pollution, think again! All the devices run on electricity, and that consumes more than you would think. The non-renewable energy sources for generating electricity are slowly depleting, so it is always better to rely on renewable sources if you can.

11. Puts Privacy At Stake

As easy as accessing the devices are, login into all your devices also makes it easily accessible by everyone, including kids. If you have children at home, make sure you put a child lock on the internet where you can keep a check on what your children are subjected to.

So now that you know all the drawbacks of your most beloved gadgets, be sure to use them only when you really need to, and wisely. Keep a time slot so you don’t exhaust your eyes, ears, and hands. Which of your gadgets can you absolutely not live without? Let us know in the comments below!

Bayas

Recomiendo una porci√≥n diaria de  bayas  (media taza fresca o congelada, o un cuarto de taza seca) y tres porciones diarias de otras frutas (una fruta de tama√Īo mediano, una fruta cortada en taza, o un cuarto de taza seca).  ¿Por qu√© selecciono las bayas? Ar√°ndano Frambuesa Fresa Grosella Espinosa Grosella Negra Grosella Roja Baya de Acai Baya de Gota B√©rbero Las bayas son las frutas m√°s saludables, debido en parte a sus pigmentos vegetales. Evolucionaron para tener colores brillantes y contrastantes que atraen a las criaturas que comen frutas para ayudar a dispersar sus semillas, y las mismas caracter√≠sticas moleculares que dan a las bayas esos colores tan vibrantes pueden explicar algunas de sus capacidades antioxidantes. Las bayas est√°n en segundo lugar, despu√©s de las hierbas y las especias, como la categor√≠a de alimentos con mayor contenido de antioxidantes. Como grupo, tienen un promedio de casi 10 veces m√°s antioxidantes que otras frutas y verduras, y superan 50 veces m√°s que lo
