Digital devices are great for helping set particular kinds of boundaries and goals. Because of the power and size of new smartphones and tablets, you now can have a personal organizer and assistant on hand at all times, and it can make you a better person, if you let it.
Specifically, you can use your tech for working with addiction, getting yourself to be more on time, sequencing out your educational goals, setting your social boundaries, and even paying attention to how engaged you are with the world around you. And, the more you practice these techniques, the better you’ll get at them.
With Respect To Addiction
Addiction in particular is interesting with respect to technology and mobility, because in the past, when dealing with addiction, there was a barrier regarding space. You had to be somewhere to get help. You had to be with someone to get help. You had to search for connections that were physically close to you. Now, you have a phone that connects you to a sponsor with a single button. You have a mobile web browser that gives you instant access to helpful websites whenever you need the information or that data. That’s some serious power!
Getting Yourself On Time
Boundaries and goals with respect to time have been troublesome for some people in the past. There were a million excuses about why you forgot, or what you weren’t paying attention to, or what you didn’t know. Now, if you have a mobile phone, you can install some reminder apps, and then all of those quick glances onto your screen will show you down to the second what you’re supposed to be accomplishing, or where you’re supposed to be, or even when you have to leave in order to get somewhere on time.
Building In Educational Goals
Using your mobile gadgets, you can build in your educational goals as well. With just your phone, you can learn a language, you can study for a test, you can search into libraries of digital online information. It’s never been easier to fold in time to spend on education while you’re doing your normal, everyday tasks.
Social boundaries are important to make via your mobile gadgets as well. You are in control of how easy it is to get ahold of you, and you are in control of your personal digital social habits. Once you set these patterns to where you want, your life will seem much more satisfactory.
One thing to pay attention to when diving into the world of mobile boundaries though, is how engaged you want to be with the world right in front of you. There are a lot of complaints from one generation to the next right now that people are spending more time looking at their digital screen than the faces of the people in front of them.
