Are you using your phone because you need to keep up with a million things at once, like keeping up to date with emails and maintaining contact/relationships with others? Or are you just simply addicted to having a phone in your hand?
Without a doubt, our phone has definitely helped us keep up to date with our busy schedules. But be honest, do you really NEED to constantly check your Facebook notifications or if your friend has responded to your text? Probably not. I know I’m guilty of this. I have my phone in my hands whilst walking to the station to check the time, when I’m wearing a watch. And so many times I’ve looked at my phone screen to check the date/time without actually registering anything and needing to check again. Like what?
Here’s a skit comedy regarding this issue by Just Kidding Films:
We talk and joke about it, but we don’t really think about how much this impacts us negatively. We’ve already begun to see that long line of people standing on the station platform staring down at their screen, or been with that friend that cannot leave their phone alone for 10minutes when you’re trying to have a conversation with them.
So please, take a minute to appreciate what’s happening around you and who’s around you.
Would you say you’re addicted to your phone? If so, why? We would love to hear your stories! 🙂
