How to get unhealthy using the Internet, especially social media

Posted: April 11, 2019 in Uncategorized

I have heard quite a few comments about excessive use of the Internet and social media making people less able to develop critical thinking skills.

While I see the reasoning behind those comments, I want to talk about your health.

Let look at using your phone in particular

Here are a few key points:

  • Sitting for extended periods of time has numerous health risks associated with it
  • Granted some people use their phones while riding motorcycles, bicycles, skateboards, or walking across the street (without looking). All if these habits can have immediate health consequences
  • Sitting with your head down and your shoulders pulled forward is a very compromised position to spend time in
  • Being sedentary through out the day can add unwanted body fat
  • The less you do, the weaker you will get

I didn’t even mention texting while driving yet because that is in a category all by itself. That’s how you can kill innocent people as well as yourself.

Consider how you often you use the Internet and social media. Write it down for a week and you’ll be shocked!
