Gadgets and sleeping habits.
We have observed that the generation of current time spends a lot of time on-line. A new concept of internet presence turning out to be an addiction. The techniques of implementing more work time (productivity) such as screen refresh rate, the colour temperature, colour combinations, curve, frame-rate of animations and videos, and illusions etc have made the eyes and brains of people restless. The attraction of eye candy design with a lot of visual stuff has made netizens crazy. Our social networks and our status messages have made us more cautious about others’ opinions about our various whereabouts and actions.
This is seen in people who find lonely long hours of surfing or with those who spend a lot of time without serious work goal.( That includes procrastination as well ) . Sorry for this generalization, but that does not mean everyone on-line are having such issues. It is only an indication to those who could not come out of it.
Just pulling back from the network or patching up with busy schedule may seem to be temporary solutions to it. Alternatively, to spend the online time effectively and productively will give meaning and value to it. Which otherwise would have gone in vain. Until there is something to achieve, the cravings for attaining fame and satisfaction will tempt anyone to use the internet more and more in a meaningless manner.
If I were in this situation, I would ask : ‘How do you rate my article? or How do you rate my (just kidding) linguistics? Not expressly, but checking how many have liked it, or how many clicks etc. It is good to see something done by us is appreciated, but then, if it is the only source of glory, we will certainly spend more time to get more points!
I hope, many have learnt that lesson. I suggest to use f.lux as the liberator for visually sensitive individuals as a sleep inducer as well. Especially for uncontrolled internet late nighters. Head to http://justgetflux.com and install it in your windows PC.
Download from here(in case if you don’t get it from official source. This may not be a latest version.)
Now our gadgets are using blue light filters as well. That is a welcoming feature.
That may not change everything. But certainly will help you. I will stop here. & I will continue later…
