Stressed If You Do, Stressed If You Don't
from the can't-win dept
Last month we wrote about how people were blaming their mobile phones for adding stress to their lives... both in bringing work home and in bringing family annoyances to work. Well, perhaps it's a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation, because a new study points out that people are getting stressed out if they don't have their mobile phone. The article then goes down the predictable path of calling people addicted to mobile phones. Again, that seems a bit extreme. What it signifies is that, for many people, mobile phones have become very important -- so it's no wonder that losing one can be stressful. Either that, or maybe we're all just addicted to stress.
