The world is becoming more and more connected where everyone has access to all the information they can think of. Screens have surrounded us at every step of our life. Thus, there is a high influx of information on people which is often termed as “information overload.”
This information overload is the root of great deal of mental and physical stress that an individual must face but they are not always aware of it. Such an easy access to information and entertainment has its advantages but it is not beneficial in a higher concentration.
The accumulation of information has reached a point where it is affecting our state of mind and the way we are thinking. Information overload keeps the user stressed, anxious, overwhelmed, and uncertain about the given information. It causes attention deficit traits, stress, easy distraction, and impatience due to huge mental stimulus. It is true that our life is much easier today than it was 50 years ago. Yet, mental illness is on the rise, and drastically.
The mobility sector has also not been immune to this. Cars, which used to serve as a means of escape and freedom, are slowly becoming another pawn of the exhausting digital lifestyle. While this eases the access of important information on-the-go but also becomes a pathway for unnecessary and time-wasting information just like with mobile phones.
Our addiction to digital media is damaging our mental peace and has a negative psychological impact on us. Though they serve a very necessary purpose, their impact in our life is more adverse than beneficial. It is necessary to stop letting vehicles become another pawn for digital addiction with an effective and constructive implementation of the technology in vehicles to provide a haven for curbing the negative impacts and introduce a serene experience.
