Signs of Smartphone Addiction
Here are my few questions. Answering yes to over five of these is a sign that there may be a Nomophobia problem.
- Do you spend more time on your smartphone than you realize?
- Do you think your smartphone decreases your productivity?
- Do you spend more time texting, tweeting or e-mailing than talking to people in the real world?
- Do you check your phone several times a day even if there’s probably nothing to see?
- When your phone rings, buzzes or beeps, do you feel an intense urge to check for updates, texts or calls?
If your answer is yes to that questions. Sorry to say that you are highly affected by addiction. We are humans and connecting with one another is really important. When we neglect people around us and try looking for happiness in mobiles in that place the quality of our life declines.
Don’t worry I have few tips to recover from that addiction!!
Turn Off or Customize Your Notifications – Whenever your mobile beeps, your eyes will turn towards mobile. So turn off or customize your notifications. The lesser notifications you receive, the less likely you are to check your smartphone.
Get rid of unnecessary apps:
Take the time to uninstall time-wasting apps from your phone, mainly Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
Turn phone off before going to bed:
Switch off the phone before going to sleep. It’s as simple as that. Hell won’t freeze over if your phone stays switched off for a few hours, and that will help you sleep better as well.
Turn Off Email When You Don’t Need It:
Turn off your mobile at least at the weekends or at vacation. May be you are busy with your business and career but nothing is not important than the family and friends. Turn your email off completely until you need to see it again. Just go to your settings, then to “mail,” and switch off the notifications.
Limit smartphone usage:
Make a pact to not check their smartphones more than 15 times a day. Try to spend your time with your favourite hobbies
