So much Technology -- It Gives you Popcorn Brain!
There are doctors now claiming all the time we spend too much time around electronics will give us Popcorn Brain. Cell phones, computers, GPS, Ipads, etc. all emit waves that causes "Popcorn Brain". They say that the structure of our brain actually changes physically. Is it true - constant stimulation can activate dopamine cells in the nucleus accumbens, a main pleasure center of the brain?
So, from now on, I will ONLY be working on my computer early of the morning, and later in the evening, despite receiving offers, having the need to send emails to clients, enter in new listings, search for homes, and of course writing blogs and commenting on others! Almost all marketing is electronics now! What about that computer in the car --- should I stay out of the car too?
The doctors recommend sitting at the computer, or talking on the phone for a maximum of 2 hours, and take a break - go outside to garden, or take a walk. With our kids spending so much time with electronics, will this damage their ability to engage in conversations face to face?
Well, guess I will have Popcorn Brain, as during these busy times, I am sure our clients will NOT understand the 2 hour max we are to be on our electronics. Will we be able to claim workman's comp?
