10 Early Signs of Smart Phone Addiction — How To Prevent
When you look around nowadays, doesn’t it seem like smartphones are surgically attached to people’s hands? Texts, tweets, emails and calls seem to be the only things that people spend their time on. The boundaries of smartphone use are constantly becoming fewer. Reality TV, video games and fast food are no longer things that people are addicted to. Smartphone addiction is currently one of the worst plagues to take over the world. Are you one of these addicts?
10 Signs of Smartphone Addiction
Here are 10 signs that show that you are addicted to your smartphone:
1. Countless apps:
If you have loads of apps installed on your phone, even useless ones, and cannot bring yourself to get rid of them, you are definitely a smartphone addict.
2. Alarms for everything:
A sure sign of smartphone addiction is the use of alarms for almost everything in your life. Unnecessary reminders for when to do things that do not need reminding says “smartphone addict” loud and clear.
3. Info about your phone:
If you constantly search for information about your phone on your phone, you are more than a little obsessed about your smartphone.
4. Cut costs for phone bill:
When you cut back on everyday necessities, say lunch, just to be able to afford your cell phone bills, it is a sign that you are a smartphone addict.
5. Phone over sleep:
If you are addicted to their phone, you would rather spend bedtime browsing, texting, tweeting, etc. rather than get some much-needed sleep. You also cannot sleep unless it is in your hand!
