#Techhijack


Highly addictive ……hijacks the reward system of the brain.

Just 10 more minutes, just another What’s up, just one more level!! Is tech your dopamine button to escape, to social affirmation & self-worth, adrenaline rush, euphoria….and you can add the rest….?


The more you get, the less it works, the more you want…….the less control you have…

No stopping cues…..the skimming, scanning, browsing is endless ……no beginning or end.

Taps into humans basic instinct to gather information…..the information unlimited……could potentially consume your life.


Key to DEEP THINKING is DEEP ATTENTION. Consolidation of info from working memory to long term memory only possible when you are attentive. Could affect ability to focus & pay attention.


Could impact the development of higher functioning skills such as reflective-, creative-, mindful-, critical-, conceptual thinking……


Interruptions/distractions/multi-tasking…. burns energy……. you focus on the speed you gather information - you sacrifice what you pay attention to.


Multi-layered reward system tapping into all your senses…..making the real world appear so unappealing…..a compliment to the reward design of all tech operations!!


Chasing connectedness to the world, disconnecting you from those close to you…….. compromising the quality of intimate & social relations due to distraction, irritation, & decreased quality time.

Comparing yourself with others……. feel a failure, envy, irritated, sad, depressed, jealous, judged, ignored…. overall dissatisfied with your life?


Facebook surveillance…. the more you see the more you want, the worse you feel.


Unrealistic expectations a burning fire?

Social media the most important influencer in your life……..for better or for worse?

No time alone with yourself, driven by the need to be constantly entertained.

Angry with all the time wasted…..disappointed in people, distrusting people……a victim of the social media battlefield….

Calculate the price you pay.

Reduce the harm to embrace the benefits
