The Attention Deficit Syndrome… TADS.. The new disease..

Mobile phones have become ubiquitous. We use it at all times. But, can you keep your self away from it during the time you are awake?

I did experiment with myself on my focussing and concentrating ability to see how much time I am able to focus on a non mobile activity?

I switched off the notifications on my device. I decided that I am going to use my phone only for calls. If anyone is really interested to get in touch, he or she will call me.

I have seen that how parents use the phone or don’t use the phones have a direct impact on the child’s behaviour too. There is more household chitchat and play which the mobile phone has stolen from us.

In my experiment which lasted a day. I was able to keep away from phone and do ‘unitasking’. I am happy that, I am able to focus on one task at the time, where multi tasking was my status quo for a long time. I felt more productive than busy after a long time.

I felt a sense of serenity which I used to enjoy during my college days. This can be partly explained with the reading of the book on ‘The One Thing’ by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan which I highly recommend reading.

I have a sense of gratitude that myself and my family have seen off 2020 without being affected by Covid. I thank all my readers for their prayers and wish you all good health and safety in this 2021.

Till then, Stay Calm and Stay Safe.
