3 mins read

How often have you found yourself transfixed by a TikTok cat video, only to realize hours have slipped away unnoticed? Scrolling on a phone is like eating a bag of chips. Reveling in the satisfying crunches, we can't stop reaching into the bag for the next crispier one. What's different is that chips may be polished off, social media feeds, however, have no end. It's hard for us to resist the allure of eye-catching content from around the world, but the peace and focus brought by ePaper will help us to get out of this Internet rabbit hole.

Why We Can't Stop Scrolling?

It's not all our fault to get this scrolling addiction. The human brain is wired to seek new stimuli. Social media brings together all attention-grabbing information, hilarious, heartbreaking, bizarre, and infuriating. Anyone with curiosity can't help taking a look. Not to mention, there are algorithms artfully designed to keep users as long as possible. As a result, we get stuck within these never-ending feeds, expecting rushes of neurological "high", one after another.

The Harmful Effects.

The first downside brought by scrolling addiction is eyestrain. Prolonged exposure to back-lit LED screens leads to dry eyes. Sometimes, it's the blurred vision that reminds us we've been on the phone for too long. Beyond the physical discomfort, mindless scrolling takes a toll on mental health, conditioning us to seek quick dopamine hits. As time goes by, this habit erodes our ability to engage in deep, focused tasks, leading to a decline in work and study efficiency.

How to Overcome It with ePaper?

In contrast to mainstream tech gadgets that always pursue faster speed and radiant visuals, ePaper, from its birth, prioritizes enhancing focus and inner peace. It offers the convenience of technology and, at the same time, creates a tranquil zone for people to think and create. Following the approaches below, break free from the infinite scroll.

1. Mute Distraction: Be a Digital Minimalist.

With so many screens dominating our daily lives, we are drowning in information. Therefore the first step is to clear digital noise, only plugging into tech products and services that benefit your life. Sometimes, you may find it hard to disconnect from emails, news, and productivity apps on your phone and computer. No worry. BOOX ePaper tablets took that into account.

All the BOOX devices run on an open Android system, allowing you to download apps on the Google Play Store. With one single device, most of your needs for study, work, and relaxation can be catered to. While maintaining access to useful tools, ePaper alleviates Internet distractions. Its paperlike display is pacifying, like adding a cool-toned filter to enticing junk food. The allure of sensational videos and overly curated photos instantly diminished, enabling you to invest your attention in the information that deserves it.

2. Less Bite-sized, More In-depth.

The knowledge that is genuinely acquired must undergo deep processing within your brain. Bite-sized content loaded on endless pages is a good time filler but not nutritional. Hours of humor clips scrolling may end with nothing. To improve critical thinking, we need to absorb more in-depth information and, even better, create something of our own. E-Paper tablets are the perfect devices to consume long-form, detailed content like novels, academic papers, comprehensive reports, and skill books.

The E Ink display simulates the texture of paper, helping you enter a flow state and ensuring eye comfort for long-time staring. Within the paperlike world, you can join the novel's protagonist on amazing adventures, unravel the intricately nested logic in academic viewpoints, and delve into the complexities of a historical event. When a spark of inspiration hits, grab a stylus and write it down. The pen-to-paper sensation on products like Note Air3 C can be so satisfying that you won't want to stop.

Consume In-depth Content

3. Say No to Algorithms, Plan Your Own Life.

Last but not least, say goodbye to the For You Page curated by algorithms and follow a plan set by yourself. Being passively bombarded by social media feeds only traps us in a filter bubble. We should actively choose the information we consume and the activities we take part in. For example, create a to-read list for commute, lunch break, and bedtime with BOOX tablets supporting 24 digital formats. With access to all kinds of reading apps, you can read whatever you want with the sharpest texts and soothing images.

On our versatile Notes app, you can plan your travels, workouts, and meals. What's worth noting is that some of our flagship products, such as Tab Ultra C Pro, are capable of more. Powered by an Octa-core CPU, it offers PC-like efficiency and robust performance, perfect for complex multitasks, enabling you to organize your life and get things done.

Make Plans on ePaper
