15 THINGS WE LOST ON MOBILE PHONES AND SMARTPHONES

In recent years, the spread of mobile phones and smartphones has been remarkable, and most high school and junior high school students as well as working adults have them.

It’s a great way to enjoy e-mail and the Internet easily and help you live a convenient life, but with the spread of mobile phones and smartphones, we have lost some things.

This time, let’s think about what we lost in such mobile phones and smartphones

WRITING HANDWRITTEN CHARACTERS

When I was a student, I often write handwritten characters for studying and exams, but when I become a member of society, such opportunities are greatly reduced, and writing itself is reduced.

In addition, since the spread of mobile phones and smartphones, the chances of writing handwritten characters have decreased.

  • READING

According to a survey by the National College Student Co-op, the percentage of college students reading “0 minutes” per day is approaching 50% in recent years, and reading time is declining.

On the other hand, the average usage time of smartphones exceeds 150 minutes, and less than 3% of respondents answered “0 minutes” of smartphone usage.

With the availability of the Internet on mobile phones and smartphones, I lost the opportunity to read print because I could easily obtain the necessary information at hand.

  • COMMUNICATION ABILITY

Now that you can easily communicate via e-mail or SNS using your mobile phone or smartphone, can you expect to improve your communication skills?

In fact, it is said that communication skills will be lost if you communicate only with letters without facing the face like this.

In e-mail and SNS, it may be required to “reply immediately” rather than guessing the feelings of the other person and summarizing one’s feelings.

If you can talk while looking at the other person’s face, you can detect the other person’s emotions and react immediately, but it is difficult to grasp what kind of feelings the other person is with just the letters, and you also reply with appropriate emotions Because it becomes difficult to do.

  • SENSITIVITY

A research paper by a professor of psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles found that overuse of mobile phones, computers, smartphones, etc. causes “decreased sensitivity to emotional signals” and “decreased ability to understand the emotions of others.” It has been pointed out.

In other words, the longer you spend looking at the screen of your mobile phone or smartphone, the lower your social skills will be.

  • TIME TO THINK ALONE AND OBSERVE THE SURROUNDINGS

When I didn’t have a mobile phone or smartphone, I had a lot of time to think about it myself.

For example, the time to meet people, wait for trains, buses, etc., and the time to eat out and get the ordered food.

I was spending time thinking about what happened today, thinking about someone, and thinking about what I was interested in.

Or I killed time while watching the scenery around me and watching other people.

During that time, I suddenly realized something important and came up with an interesting idea

  • TIME TO WATCH TV

The spread of the Internet has helped reduce TV viewing time.

This trend has been accelerating since the latest information was available on mobile phones and smartphones.

  • EXERCISE HABITS

The more time you spend playing games on your smartphone, the less you move.

In recent years, it seems that children often gather outside to play with their smartphones.

Statistics show that the longer you use your smartphone, the shorter your exercise time, so you need to be more conscious of your exercise for your health.

  • LOOK UP A DICTIONARY

When I come across a word I don’t understand, I can easily look it up on my mobile phone or smartphone, so I have less chance to look up Japanese dictionaries, Kanji dictionaries, Japanese-English, and English-Japanese dictionaries.

You can get the information you need faster by searching the Internet than by looking up a paper dictionary

  • ASK PEOPLE WHAT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND

In the past, most of the time I learned from watching TV or talking to people by having my family and friends teach me or reading a book, but mobile phones and smartphones have become widespread. Since then, I have been able to search anything using the Internet at hand.

It’s like having your most knowledgeable friends around you all the time, and they will tell you anything you don’t understand.

Once you get used to it, even the smallest things can quickly be searched on the Internet.

EFFORTS TO REMEMBER

It can be frustrating to forget the names of things and entertainers.

In the past, I often felt uncomfortable without remembering it, but now I can look it up on my mobile phone or smartphone, and I don’t have to make an effort to remember it.

HOW TO KILL FREE TIME

Whether you’re waiting for a train or bus, or meeting someone at a coffee shop, you can now spend hours with your mobile phone or smartphone.

When I wasn’t there, I thought hard about how to kill my free time.

For example, you can carry a book with you to read or think about it, or if you are in a coffee shop, fold a paper napkin on the table to make something or look at the menu. I tried to play it repeatedly 3 times in the middle.

I think that each person had their own way of killing time.

But now, most people can easily spend their time on the Internet on their mobile phones and smartphones, and on social media and games.

  1. POOR EYESIGHT

Since the spread of mobile phones and smartphones, there are concerns that the eyesight of the younger generation will decline.

If you look at your cell phone or smartphone in your futon all day long before going to bed, your eyesight will definitely deteriorate.

It is said that the main cause is that the ciliary muscles that focus the eyes are overloaded by looking at objects at the same distance for a long time.

To prevent vision loss, it is important to take a proper break and sometimes look far away.

TIME OF SLEEPING

Are you touching your mobile phone or smartphone until just before you go to sleep in the futon?

Since these became widespread, sleep time has definitely been on the decline.

When you are exposed to the blue light emitted by the screen of your mobile phone or smartphone, your eyes become clear and it becomes difficult to fall asleep. Once you start, you tend to become a lack of sleep with and I no longer know in advance is stopped.

Lack of sleep can lead to loss of appetite, loss of attention, and fatigue, which can interfere with daily activities.

  1. NECK CERVICAL SPINE HEALTH

If you look at your cell phone or smartphone all the time, your neck will be fixed at an angle with your head facing down.

When facing straight forward, the cervical spine of the neck, which supports the head from the back of the head to the spine, draws a natural curve, but when the head is facing down, the cervical spine is pulled straight.

SAFETY WHILE WALKING

The danger of “texting while walking” is always being called for, both by train and in town.

Of course, it is dangerous to walk while looking down at a mobile phone or smartphone.
