5 Signs You're Addicted To Your Smartphone

The fear of not having your smartphone is real and is sometimes referred to as Nomophobia (no-mobile-phone-phobia). It can trigger anxiety and symptoms that, in some ways, are not unlike the fear of not getting that next fix from a drug.

Are you addicted to your smartphone? Here are five signs you may be a smartphone addict:

  1. Your smartphone is almost always in your hand.
  2. You feel a sense of loss when separated from your smartphone.
  3. Virtual relationships become more important than real relationships.
  4. You often lose track of time due to smartphone overuse.
  5. You check your phone while driving and/or you obsessively check your phone every time you come to a red light.

If you realize you have some or all of these signs, maybe you should take a digital detox and reconnect to your non-virtual life.
