Although it looks like a simple task, texting while walking but actually it’s not. Most of the time people focus only to the texting device and not to the surrounding area, resulting minor to serious injuries, from bumping to other people to falling down to a hole and break the legs.
2. Listening to Music with loud volume
Listening music with loud volume makes you “in” to the music, but it also makes your attention “out” from the road or pathway you are walking. The worst thing to happen is when you are crossing the junction, you may not be fully aware if something coming towards you. Try to lower the volume or completely stop listening to music while walking.
3. Opening Apps or Playing Games that requires your full attention
Either playing Super Mario Run, Clash Royale or reading this article on browser or on FlipBoard and many other apps and games that require your full attention to always look at the phone screen, is to be avoided while walking. Same thing like texting, you may bump to other people or end up falling to sewer or drainage.
Stop daydreaming while walking and try to stay aware of the surrounding area. Easiest way to prevent daydreaming while walking is to move your head up, down, left and right in a slow and gentle way. Don’t do it the extreme way, otherwise people will start staring at you.
