These days we are nagged not only by the real life people we interact with but our cars, phones and all sorts of electrical appliances. The nagging may be in the form of beeping, text message or a verbal message. I have just received a text from Facebook reminding me to write a post or share something to keep people 'engaged'. Okay, Facebook I know you mean well but I am just not in the mood to be nagged to do one more thing today.

I must admit sometimes I find appointment reminders useful. I like to pride myself that I am not going to forget an appointment because it's in my diary. However, a reminder on my mobile is reassuring that I got the time right. The only trouble is, if I don't get a reminder I start to wonder if I made a mistake when I wrote the appointment in my diary.

There are all sorts of apps available to remind you to get up and walk around or drink some water. You can set up an app on your phone to remind you to floss your teeth or whatever it is you don't do automatically. Not my style, I am not going to ask something to nag me over yet another thing I should be doing, but hey if it helps you, go ahead and do it.

Some people argue that using an app to remind you to sit up straight or whatever is helpful because after a time you will do it without being reminded. If that is so, perhaps such things have their place.

A car may beep until you put your seat belt on. That could save your life so I won't complain about that one.

My microwave beeps every few seconds if it has finished cooking something and I haven't opened the microwave door. Sometimes I am busy with something else and find that beeping irritating.

Yes, sometimes technological reminders are helpful but there are so many things nagging us these days, I'm sure it adds to our levels of stress. It's important for me to take a break from technology from time to time, especially because I have actually written about Can't Live Without The Internet.
