How to Keep Your Smartphone from Hurting Your Relationships – 2

 4. Don’t let your smartphone stop you from socializing with strangers

A growing body of research suggests that even seemingly trivial interactions with strangers—like chatting with a barista or cashier—play a big role in how socially connected we feel. How might smartphones affect these interactions? Well, to the extent that we are on our smartphones instead of having casual interactions with others, we miss out on opportunities to connect.

In one study, researchers found that having a smartphone on hand led people who needed directions to primarily rely on the phone and not ask others for help. As a result of not interacting with others, the people with smartphones felt less socially connected and thus worse overall (even though they got to their destination faster). This suggests that smartphones can eliminate social interactions in small but important ways that could have long-term consequences on our lives.

After spending the last few decades hearing, “don’t talk to strangers,” we understandably feel some trepidation about talking to people we don’t know. But choosing to reach out to another human being, in many circumstances, can be extremely valuable for our well-being and theirs.

By 2016, 77 percent of U.S. adults owned a smartphone. Although they’re just small rectangular objects in our pockets, smartphones are leading to significant shifts in how we interact with the world.

Headlines tell us that “smartphones have destroyed a generation” and “social media is ripping apart society. But what does the research say?

Indeed, young people who use electronic devices more tend to experience greater depression and worse mood. And smartphones seem to be particularly problematic for relationships, leading to social interactions that are lower-quality and less empathic. But there are a wide range of ways you can use your smartphone—from taking photos with your friends to envious Facebook stalking—and only some of them are detrimental.

So, how do you keep your smartphone from harming your connection to others? These research-backed strategies can help protect your relationships in a variety of social situations.

Прегръдката

Много често хората задават въпроса как да подкрепим човек, който е тъжен, тревожен или плаче, а вие не знаете какво да направите в такава ситуация. В действителност съществува много прост, но в същото време ефективен инструмент, който може да се използва в подобна ситуация – и когато човек се чувства зле, и когато му е много добре – това е прегръдката.

Понякога физическият контакт е по-красноречив от всички думи. Когато майка прегърне детето си, тя му дава чувство за сигурност. Когато прегърнем човек, му показваме нашето внимание, своето отношение към ситуацията, показваме, че споделяме неговите чувства и преживявания. При прегръщането ние даваме на хората подкрепа, грижа, опора, защита. Прегръщайки човек, ние се опитваме физически да споделим болката или да приемем част от неговото щастие и радост.

Sharpen Your Mind With the MIND Diet

by Michelle Braun Ph.D.

The impact of nutrition on memory-functioning can be surprisingly rapid. Memory can improve as quickly as one hour after consuming a protein drink, and decline one hour after consuming a glucose drink. In addition, a low glycemic breakfast (in which glucose declines slowly after peaking) is associated with better verbal memory over the course of the morning than a high glycemic breakfast (in which glucose peaks at a high level and declines rapidly).

However, the impact of nutrition on brain health extends far beyond the hours in which food is consumed. In fact, the food we eat over a period of years has the ability to impact our brain health positively or negatively.
