K.K.'s Letter: A Teenager's Perspective on Device Addiction






K.K.'s Letter: A Teenager's Perspective on Device Addiction

In K.K.'s own words:

"In this world, where all types of electronic devices are being used massively like never before, they are controlling teenagers' daily lives from the moment they wake up to the second they close their eyes to go to sleep. I have seen many of my friends, just like me, get dragged into the world of social media.

As a teenager, I've frequently found myself scrolling through my phone for hours. We use electronic devices to get a sense of empowerment, connection, and escape from the problems in the real world. It's no surprise that electronic devices are essential in today's world, but overuse/addiction comes with salient consequences, such as anxiety, memory loss, reduced ability to think clearly, and reduced cognitive and learning skills.

Acknowledging the problem is the first step. I've realized the importance of setting boundaries when it comes to the use of electronic devices. Using your phone less can not only improve your mood but also help you find some hobbies that don't require electronic devices, such as sports, painting, or reading.

Navigating your life in this digital world can be tough, especially when you're a teenager. That's why it's up to us to navigate it wisely. I hope to inform people about this issue and encourage them to try finding manifold ways to fill in their free time, device-free.

-K.K."
