Morning folks!  This brief article from the journal Psychological Reports in May 2012 found some interesting findings for those of you who use Facebook.

According to Dr. Cecilie Schou Andreassen, some users of Facebook have developed a dependency to the social networking site. "Facebook Addiction" is more common among young people who are anxious and socially insecure, probably because those who are anxious find it easier to communicate via social media than face-to-face.

In today's face paced world where technology is there to supposedly make our lives "easier" I wonder just how many of us are losing personal connect with those we love and care about.  I have to admit often times my wife and sit on the couch and both connected to our smart phones surfing the internet, meanwhile time and our opportunities for our relationship developments pass us by.  I have a feeling we are not alone.  I thinks its time to re-evaluate our priorities in life and focus on the 2 most important aspects of life....health and our relationships.

Food for thought.  Have a blessed day!
