Baby, it’s time to let go of that bad blood.
1. You’re attached to your phone basically always, and kind of ignore everything else around you.
Today you can pretty much do everything through apps on your phone — which makes it unsurprising that in a survey done in 2012, 66% of participants confessed to “nomophobia,” an actual fear of being without your phone. Smartphone dependency has become so common that now recovery centers like The Ranch even provide rehab for it.
Do this instead: You can start by downloading an app like Moment to help you track the amount of hours you spend on your phone. Then try setting small boundaries for yourself, such as:
– Putting your phone away when you’re out with friends.
– Not using your phone when you’re out to dinner.
– Setting it down when you’ve been on it for more than 20 minutes at a time.
– Not touching it after 11 p.m.
