The alarm sounds on your smart phone. It’s an unwelcome start to the day, so you make it better by ‘rewarding’ with a Facebook update, email check, and a quick re-tweet or two.
It typically ends like this:
A friend posted photos of their holiday – you wish you were there.
You read about world destruction and animal cruelty – you’re angry and upset.
A good friend has messaged you to relieve themselves of their previous days’ worries – you’re already emotionally drained.
Your day is now interrupted, and even more energy is required to correct its course.
