7 signs you're addicted to technology

1. YOUR PHONE GOES EVERYWHERE

You always have your phone on you, no matter where you're going. In fact, you usually just carry it in your hand and check instantly if it notifies you of something new going on. It's even made its way into the standard setting of a table; because of course your setting is not complete without knife, fork, spoon and phone. Don't forget to take a picture of your meal!

2. GOOGLE IS THE ANSWER

No matter what the question is, Google will always have the answer and that's where you go first; every time. Can't remember that guy's name from that film? You've got to check Google; it'll bug you until you do.

 
 
3. YOU'RE EASILY DISTRACTED
 
Whenever you send an email discussing the attached document, you realise you forgot to attach it just after you hit send.
 
You're great at multi-tasking - texting and talking, talking and texting; this is modern life, no?
 
You forget things; a lot.
 
4. YOU HAVE NO CONCEPT OF TIME
 
You can waste days online and not even realise it. You suddenly feel hungry even though you've only just had breakfast, only to realise it's 4pm; where did the time go? It can take you forever to get something done; sometimes hours to complete a task that should have only taken about 30 minutes.
 
5. YOU'RE PROTECTIVE
 
You're reluctant to let anyone use your phone, tablet or computer. You always keep the product boxes; you just never know when you might need them. You're obsessive over keeping fingerprints off of your screens. 
 
6. DAILY HABITS
 
The first thing you do on a morning is check your phone and all of your social media pages. You repeat this at least once an hour throughout the day and when it's time to retreat back to bed...repeat.
 
The bathroom is no longer a solo visit; instead it provides the perfect opportunity to catch up with your social circles.
 
7. YOU SPEAK INTERNET
 
No longer do you laugh or use logical sentences; you actually say 'LOL' when something funny happens (and then laugh, because you are too funny). You say 'hashtag', that's right. You live your life and if you think of a relative word to a situation, you will sit there and say something like 'hashtag bored', 'hashtag totes amazeballs' or 'hashtag adorbs'.
 
 
We all know technology is a wonderful thing, but sometimes you need to be more aware of your surroundings and the physical world in front of you. If you fit into every one of the above categories, it's maybe time to ease off on the gadgets and check out some other opportunities that may currently be passing you by.
