While modern conveniences have certainly improved certain aspects of our lives, they have also contributed to health challenges such as text neck, twitter thumbs, muscle strains and repetitive injuries. The way we use our brains is much different today than as little as 20 years ago. For example, when was the last time you had to remember a phone number that was not on speed-dial or search the answer to a question without looking it up on the internet? While it’s not practical to stop using our devices and give up our conveniences, we can certainly do things to better stimulate areas of the brain and overcome the negative health effects of using our tech.
