PowerPoint Presentation:

Getting used to multi-tasking on my phone has caused… I find it hard to concentrate on one specific actionable for a very long time. Even during exams I find myself switching topics and concurrently advancing on 3 or 4 topics than studying one finishing it and then moving onto the other. There has been a lot of research into this and its now suggested that we are actually “evolving” as a species towards members with lesser attention spans. SHORT ATTENTION SPAN THUMB PAIN Sometimes I find myself loathing the idea of a written exam simply because of the fact that my thumbs are already in a painful state even when the exam has only started. This I have found is directly attributable to my late night texting habits. MILD MIGRAINES I also get mild migraines when I use my mobile late into the night. This hampers any work for which I need to use another screen like a laptop or a tablet. These are mostly like harmless hangovers.
