Don’t pick your phone just because you’re bored

The next time you pick your phone,
Ask yourself-

1) There something major happening in your life right now, and you just want to escape?

2) Are you upset and want to distract yourself?

3) You’re bored and need some entertainment, Or

4). You’re just doing it out of habit?

Chances are, it’s one of these reasons.

Now, the first, second and last point are points which everyone is somehow aware of.

It’s the 3rd point which we often underestimate in terms of the damages it causes.

So let’s discuss it.

Now, some people might argue that being bored is not particularly a negative emotion.

And I agree.
But, it’s important to develop a coping mechanism when bored or upset.

That feeling of awkwardness or the uncomfortable feeling of boredom which we so desperately want to escape, are both Important for our growth.

We’ve all become way too lazy.
We’ve become experts in escaping uncomfortable situations.

But the thing is, If you keep trying to escape the discomfort then how’re you gonna prepare for the future when you have no option BUT to be uncomfortable?

These apps act as painkillers and give you a temporary refuge but you probably won’t have a permanent cure to your problems.

Learn to deal with your emotions Instead ❤️
