Living in a society solely based on digital technology, it is easy to get wrapped up and become addicted to our devices. Screen-time addictions can have serious consequences on the lives of the addicted individual and their loved ones. Using our phones while driving is one example where the behavior is not only endangering the one using the phone, but other drivers as well. Other side effects include neglecting relationships, depression, other negative feelings and even suicidal ideation. At Virtually Addicted, we are here to extinguish the negative effects screen addiction can cause.
Some long-term physical effects of screen-time addictions include:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Sleep impairment
- Vision problems
From gaming and social media to the overuse of television, the insufferable power a screen-time addiction can take over a person’s life and cause other priorities to fade away. Too much of anything can be bad. At Virtually Addicted, we are here to help guide you on a more productive life path. Our trained therapists will provide expert support on your journey to a happier, more successful life.
