Why are humans becoming addicted to their phones?

Theres been a study that found that Americans matured 35 to 49 utilized social media 40 minutes more each week than those matured 18 to 34. Gen Xers were moreover more likely than millennial to drag their phones out at the supper table. The middle-­aged spend more time than millennial on each sort of device phone, computer, tablet, and whereas they don’t look at their phones whereas driving more than youthful individuals, they do it more than they should. So Why can’t middle-­aged ­people put down their phones? Since the midpoint of life is when your got to communicate crests. The middle-aged are the central hub in their atomic families, the center through which all informing voyages. Beyond any doubt, individuals beneath 30 may juggle perpetual Snaps and Instagram Stories with their companions. But the middle-aged are handling writings and Face Times from their young kids (hitting them up with questions almost school or connections) as well as emails, phone calls, and more writings from then. millennial also have the same issue. These days social media is becoming so huge and also time consuming theirs so many things that can pull you to your phone and watch a tiktok, of Instagram and snap chat story. the distracting is getting huge. the feeling of putting your phone away and getting things done for yourself is becoming hard for many you feel lost with the world when you do it. I know I do. Since so numerous individuals utilize their phones as devices of social interaction, they ended up acclimated to always checking them for that hit of dopamine that’s discharged when they interface with others on social media or a few other app. App software engineers are checking on that drive to keep you checking your phone. A few apps indeed withhold and discharge social fortifications, such as “likes” and “comments,” so we get them in an eccentric design. When we can’t anticipate the design, we check our phones more often. That cycle can lead to a tipping point: when your phone ceases to be something you appreciate and gets to be something you’re essentially compelled to utilize.

here are some helpful tips to make your phone addiction better: try to get some apps on your phone that helps you with some self control tips. why not use you phone in a healthy format? once you tame you self control, set aside one day a week to your self wear you shut your phone completely off try to have some “me time”.

Heres a graph that shows you how hard it is for millennials to put there phone down!

The End of Go Radio

Go Radio is a radio station that was created in 2015 and consists of two stations 96.3 which plays alternative rock and 95.3 which plays hip hop. Last week they announced the sad news that they are being sold in the beginning of next year. You can view their statement here.

This station was a great addition to Minnesota and created many opportunities for local artists. I was lucky enough to be able to work for them for two years. I started at Go Radio in 2018 and had many wonderful memories made during my time there.

Go Radio was my first job in the field that I want to work in. I have always been so passionate about music and found that the only place I could truly see myself working in was the music industry. I had been a fan of the station for so long and when I got hired it felt like a dream come true. I was hired as an intern and learned so many valuable things during my time there.

This job really took me out of my comfort zone. I did things like going to shows to get content for social media by interacting with listeners. I ran the sound for this rap competition that we hosted. At first I was scared and doubtful that I could do it, but by doing this it taught me that I’m capable of anything I set my mind to.

One day I could be setting up a concert and the next day I could be waking up at 3:30am to help with 96.3’s morning food show “Foodie Friday”. Where they would go to a different restaurant every week and the first 96 people in line would get free breakfast. Go Radio was really about the community, their listeners were loyal because they knew that we really cared. We were at the fair, had our own stage at Soundset, had our own nights at a night club and working all these things brought so much experience. I was able to be in the studio and learn from great DJ’s that had been in the industry for years. People that were nice enough to pass their knowledge on to me and give me insight on what I could achieve within the industry if I put in the work.

I went to so many concerts, met so many artists and met some great people in the industry that taught me a lot. Go Radio is something I will always cherish and will hold a special place in my heart. They gave so many artists a platform and a chance to be discovered. Gave their listeners a place where they could go to for great music and to share their opinions and feelings about things. They did a whole lot for the hip hop and alternative scene in Minnesota and it will be such a great loss to no longer have them around.

What are the best sources of caffeine for you?


Most college students survive with the help of large quantities of caffeine! Social media has advertisements often for energy drinks and the caffeine is lauded as a solution to lethargy. Caffeine can be addictive but we all still love it and accept that fact. Almost daily my Dad consumes over 64 ounces of coffee from the coffee business that me and my siblings have, and that amount of caffeine works for him. With such a large amount of caffeine becoming normal to your system it is important to find healthy sources of caffeine!

Natural caffeine is best.

When synthetic caffeine is made and put in products it does not copy the natural way caffeine occurs in plants. This article from True Protein talks about how caffeine in plants always comes with other vitamins and methylxanthines which help balance the body when you consume caffeine. Synthetic caffeine almost never comes with such protective measures to help your body better digest and use the caffeine. There are also health benefits to these vitamins and methylxanthines that products with synthetic caffeine will not have. They work toward a steady release of caffeine in your body that helps to prevent a horrible crash from the helpful effects of caffeine.

Good caffeine sources and caffeine levels:

  • Coffee – Approximately 95 mg of caffeine per 8 oz. serving
  • Black Tea – Approximately 47 mg of caffeine per 8 oz. serving
  • Green Tea – Approximately 30-50 mg of caffeine per 8 oz. serving
  • Cocoa – Approximately 12 mg of caffeine per 1 Tbsp. serving
  • Dark Chocolate – Approximately 12 mg of caffeine per 1 oz. serving
  • Guarana Berry – Approximately 1,316 mg of caffeine per 1 oz. serving
  • Matcha Tea – Approximately 280 mg of caffeine per 8 oz. serving
  • Kombucha – Approximately 14 mg of caffeine per 8 oz. serving (depending on what tea is used to ferment.)

These are naturally occurring sources of caffeine and all are unique and amazing. I am sure there are other natural sources, but these are common ones that I have heard of.

Advisory for the caffeine sensitive:

With all of this information on the benefits of natural caffeine I hope that advertisements and the norms shown in media will have less of a say in your choice of how to stay energized. I know personally I have a very low tolerance of caffeine and I cannot drink even green tea after twelve in the afternoon. I have felt pressure from social media and even friends to drink more caffeine even when it would leave me feeling on-edge or even queasy. Everyone processes caffeine in a different way so your metabolism might be able to take more or less than other people and it is important to know your body and to know what amount of caffeine is too much for you.

So, with this information, I hope you enjoy your morning cup of coffee and have a good rest of your day!
