Sub title:Techology should help you, not hurt you
Today's smartphones can do almost anything intantly, but like all tools,they should be used wisely. So here is a list of problematic habits that smartphone users should avoid.
Ignoring your surroundings
Imagine you're rushing through a croweded subway station, late for an appointment. Suddenly someone is blocking your way, walking very slowly, drifting back and forth, fiddling with their smartphone. You probably feel annoyed, but do you ever do the same thing? For the sake of others and for your own safety,put the phone away while walking.
Recording people without permission
It may be tempting to snap a picture or take a video when you see someone who looks different.But recording people's daily lives can be rude and hurtful.If you want a picture,ask for permission.
Your friends may not mind you taking pictures of them.But make sure you ask before posting anything that could be embarrassing online.Displaying their mistake for the world to see is sure to hurt your frienfship.And once pictures are posted,they're impossible to remove.
Disconnecting from people
Smartphones are great tools for communication-except when they replace personal interaction.It's not uncommon to see people sitting together not speaking,but staring silently at their smartphones.Real friendships require face-to-face interaction.Facial expressions and body language express far more than words-or emotions.
What you focus on reflects your priority.Interrupting a conversation to check your phone implies that the person you're with is less important than your messages.
If you're at special event don't let your phone become a distraction.Turn it off,or use the silent mode so everyone can fully enjoy the experience.
Stifling your creativity
With your smartphone always avaiable,You always have something to do.But that may not be a good thing.Some say that unused time is necessary for creative thinking.So resist the impulse to spend every spare moment with your phone.Instead,see what great ideas you can think up.
By avoiding these habits,you can be sure your smartphone is helping-not hurting-you.
