Just One More Minuteâ¦
You always spend more time on the computer than you originally intended.
Too Much Tech
The more devices you have, the more you have on your 'to do' list.
You multitask so much with devices that you can't relax when it's time to sleep at night.
You wake up restless, until you pick up the smartphone and plug back in.
You're constantly thinking of what you need to do next, instead of savoring what you're doing right now.
Alone in the Crowd
Most of your Facebook friends are really strangers.
You put more time into experiences created online than those you pursue in real life.
You feel less of yourself if you don't have the very latest version of the most popular gadget.
You fear that if you cut everything off - even temporarily - bad things will happen.
You buy devices for family members to stay connected, yet you don't actually spend time with them.
