Technology is evolving at such a fast pace that human beings are still biologically, neurologically and psychologically trying to catch up with the speed of technological development. Nightingale Hospital has compiled a list of quick and easy steps to help slow down the pace of life and combat technology and social media issues such as ‘E-ddiction’:

  • Spend some BlackBerry-free time each day
  • Don’t take laptops, BlackBerrys and other technology on holiday
  • Have a lunch break out of the office and away from your computer
  • Limit the amount of time spent online and onscreen, particularly for adolescents
  • Avoid temptation: Don’t sleep with your BlackBerry next to you in bed and avoid checking emails just before you go to sleep
  • Nurture relationships by meeting face-to-face and speaking over the telephone rather than via text and social networking
