Do you control your Smartphone, or does your Smartphone control you?
Many people wish they had less stress. But some stress is self-made. One cause is the constant accessibility. For many people it is normal to have their smartphone always at hand, whether at work, at dinner or on the toilet. Even at night it is within reach next to the bed so that you can check when you wake up to see if there is a supposedly important message.
If we put ourselves under pressure - always want to be aware of everything and react immediately - this can create stress. And too much stress makes you sick.
