Fidget spinners

via Gizmodo 
Fidget spinners are having their biggest moment since their emergence in the 1990s.

Except this time the main problem isn’t ADD or anxiety relief but rather our mobile phone addiction.

The main reason fidget spinners are hitting mainstream is to help escape the glow of our devices.

Our smartphones are dopamine producers. When something is your wallet, camera, phone, and computer it’s nearly impossible to resist.

Boredom is so scarce studies show that eople rather zap themselves than deal with their own thoughts.

Have we forgotten the benefits of solitude

The best ideas come when we’re disconnected, such as in the shower or going for a walk.

The fidget spinner is a real plea for help.
