Last weekend I started to feel a strange pain in my arms, mostly my forearms, like a numbness. I started doing research about it and found loads of articles talking about how this is an increasing problem in youth due to an over use of cellphones and computers. I am not surprised actually and even after all my efforts to cut down on using my iPhone and computer, well, I couldn’t.
After a whole week of having such a strange and horrible feeling in my arms and hands (some days being worse than others), I decided to go to the doctor, just to make sure. I finally went on Friday and I guess I was somehow relieved to hear it wasn’t anything “bad”, yet it could become if I didn’t give my hands a good rest. The reason why I am sharing this with you is because I know I am not the only one on this boat, I know that most of us spend a huge amount of time on our phones and computers. All this overuse of certain joints holding our phones a certain way and so on, it’s not normal for our bodies, even though it has now become “normal” and part of our every day lives.
This is why I have been a little absent in the past few days, on the blog and social media…I decided to listen to the doctor and give my arms and hands a rest, although its extremely hard to do so and I am always itching to come back here and post something new. I know I’ll probably fail miserably at taking 100% rest but I am trying so hard to cut my iPhone use in half, maybe it could be a very good experiment. Putting my phone down and enjoying the moment will be my new motto. Wish me luck and don’t worry, I will still update, Im not going anywhere ;)
