Journalist and broadcaster Ida Nunez, 66, has a close relationship with her cell phone. “It’s a staple of my life. I work with both, plus two computers. I run a news feed, snippet, see all networks, make payments, and cell phone is just too slow for me. While I’m putting a password on one, I’m already receiving email on The other one, I delete it, and put my two computers to work, so I work with the four together to save time,” he says. She realizes that she can handle everyday tasks more gracefully this way.
Ida’s story is similar to Daft Punk’s “Frantic” technology: “Buy it, use it, break it, fix it/throw it in the trash, change it, email it, upgrade/upload it, point, zoom in/out, tweak/grab, work, fast(…) Tech. Tech.”
Musicians criticize people’s current lifestyle, where everything calls for urgency. Many are in this state, “a thousand hours”, with the solution of hanging problems with a ringtone. However, Ida Nuñez realized she was relying on the device when she thought she had lost it in a clothing store.
The journalist always picks up her bag and checks if it’s heavier because of the two phones she’s carrying. I went to do this and didn’t have the weight of a cell phone. I panicked! I tried to calm down and couldn’t. I can’t be without a cell phone, my whole life is there. I started having tachycardia, couldn’t breathe properly, and feeling nervous I couldn’t control. Similar to chastity. I started shivering. Then, I was able to find the cell phone in the bags to try on clothes in the changing room. That was a relief to me,” he recalls.

The Nomophobia It is the irrational fear that a person has of not having a cell phone or not being able to use it for some reason. “When a person cannot do things that are not related to the immediate use of the device, it is a sign of dependency.

We can say that when there is conditioning For life to use the device, you must pay attention,” explains psychologist Davey Alves.
Ida Nuñez reports that she didn’t realize that cell phone use was causing another problem besides dependency: the worry. “For example, I really like movies and series, and I have multiple (streaming) subscriptions. I watch Korean shows, which are slower, in this fast-paced mode, you know? Because if I’m going to run a marathon, and I spend hours watching, I really want to I go to the end quickly. One day a friend asked me if I didn’t watch for fun. And I replied I wanted to see the end soon, if the guy killed him, what happened, that kind of thing. Then I thought about it.

Improving technology and social networking algorithms may be responsible for this behavioral change in humans. “The more an individual uses social networks and other technological and interactive resources and realizes the ‘gain’ in it, the more he is reinforced not only for reuse, but also encouraged to search for similar networks, always in search of something better.

“I think the anxiety came a lot because of the cell phone. So I took all the little noise out of the phone because every time you hear a whistle, you stop to see what it is. And at 22:00, the machine is completely turned off. Also, when I go out to eat, I don’t take my cell phone out of my bag. It’s not that you don’t want to. You tend to do it, but without it you can enjoy your meals so much more. My anxiety level decreased and I noticed the change,” she said.
