Of late, we have become a pixelated society in every sense. It is one thing when tedious and efficiency-demanding activities like work and study becomes technologized, but today, the scenario is so different that each of our activities that are related to entertainment, stress-relief, happiness and pleasure are technologically mediated. This need not bother us as long as technology can promise to bring true satisfaction and happiness. Unfortunately, statistics and studies say that this is not always the case.

De-Plugging is Living: Why Technology should not Always be the Solution
Since each one of us, from kids to seniors, are so addicted to our gadgets and the internet, it is important to understand and acknowledge the other side of the picture.
  •       Technology is not always the healthiest choice. Addiction to gadgets is clinically proven to cause a wide range of health concerns, including permanent hearing damage, posture-related physical conditions and affected vision. It even contributes to brain shrinkage by 20%.
  •       Technology is not the happiest choice either. Technological addiction is a leading cause of anxiety and stress among adults. 73% people suffer from panic if they misplace their gadgets, 48% cannot resist social media even after bedtime, 49% feel constantly alert to notifications and 44% cannot sleep without the cellphone nearby.
  •       Technology is not a safe choice, especially for kids. Studies show how kids are routinely exposed to age-inappropriate content like improper language, porn, violence and crimes through technology. And most of these come in addictive packages like games and series.

  •       Technological addiction is no less complicated than substance abuse. It comes with serious psychological damage, and withdrawal symptoms that can lead to depression and suicidal tendency. Technology addicts find their family and social life disrupted by gadgets, their mind unable to focus on passion, studies, work or society – whatever that makes life worth living.


Finding the Pace of Life Again: Martial Arts and the Magic of De-Plugging
Martial art is an inexpensive, efficient and fulfilling way to naturally wean yourself off the device-craze. With martial arts, adults and kids can easily take hold of their technology addiction without the bother of medical help or counselling. Martial art training approaches techno-addiction by providing your mind with those factors that you constantly seek in the world of technology. Martial arts can relieve stress, provide a fun break from your duties and tasks, and make you satisfied with life. A good martial art school, which provides professional instruction along with the vibrant companionship of fellow-learners is nothing short of a rehab for those who are addicted to technology and want to de-plug.

The martial art lessons for adults and children at Bruce McCorry’s Academy, for instance, focuses on how martial art can be used to bring its learners to a healthy, holistic and positive lifestyle. Regular practice sessions are based on structured curriculum prepared by experienced instructors. Martial art teaches you to keep your mind relaxed, focus on and nurture your inner self, stay true to positive thought, and fill your life with the companionship of the few people who matter. 

Children who learn martial arts too learn to distance themselves from the world of constant buzzing and focus on the inner growth instead. There’s no other way to de-plug but the martial art way.
