Excercise on September 23th. Please help me correct this excercise below. Thank you very much.
How many hours do you spend on the social media per day?. Are you addicted to social media?
These days, many people stay at home because of covid19. So most of their activities are associated with the internet. Before the pandemic, we used to have many activities outdoors like meeting friends, picnics, travelling,… But now we are not allowed to do these things. That makes us irritated and annoyed. Internet is the only way to entertain us. However, as we spend more and more time on the net, we can become easily addicted. Although I try
my best to limit the time in using the social media, I tend to lose control occasionally when surfing Facebook, Youtube and other media. Everyday, I spend an average of 2 hours on the
social media or even 5 or 6 hours. That’s really bad for my health, especially my eyes.
To limit my usage, I have uninstalled all the social media applications on my
cellphone. I don’t log into Facebook and Youtube anymore. I spend more spare time in cooking, cleaning and gardening. The size of my house is not enough for a garden but we have a terrace about 15 square metres on the third floor. My parents have planted many kinds of bonsai for 6 years. That place is really nice for doing meditation and watching sunsets.
Social Media brings lots of benefits for our work, studies and relaxation. However, if we waste our time on
meaningless pursuits, there will be serious negative effects. There are various ways to limit you over-dependence on the internet.
