How Your Phone Is Ruining Your Life (And What To Do About It)

 

Your phone. In today’s society, it’s hard to picture life without it. It keeps you connected, it keeps you entertained, and it keeps you busy—but one thing it doesn’t necessarily do?

 

Keep you productive.

 

“While the indiscriminate use of the cell-phones to call, send texts, emails, etc. might seem as it enhances productivity, it is, in fact, counter-productive,” says Simon Gottschalk, PhD, a professor of graduate studies at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and author of The Terminal Self: Everyday Life in Hypermodern Times.
