Studies show relationships with cell phones take priority over human interaction
Cell phones, tablets, pads, and computers are in every home, in every vehicle, our hand bags and nestled in the palm of our hands. Our growing relationship with technology isn’t surprising as they have become small, portable and attractive. I myself have frequently written that Siri schedules and runs my entire life. However, how much is too much? A survey published by Statista a few months ago shows the more Americans would rather live without sex than to be separated from their mobile device.
To take this a step further, 27% of households are singles, yet over half of the human population, 58% of us, prefer a sleeping companion of the non-human type, meaning our cat or dog. A whopping 44% also sleep with their cell phone. To simplify, we eat, live, breathe and slumber with our cells in favor of actual human interaction. If this info graphic doesn’t raise some eyebrows and make us think a bit more about the future of our species, I don’t know what will.
