It’s common and sensible to own a smartphone nowadays as it is very much integral to our way of life. Unfortunately, with the functions and attractions it provides us, it’s easy to fall into the trap of addiction. If you’re not sure if you’re one of these people, check out the list to confirm if you’re addicted to your mobile phone.
Top 1 sign you’re addicted to your mobile phone: You accidentally leave your phone at home, so you can’t concentrate at work or school.
How many times has this happened to you? You know exactly where your phone is so there’s no reason to worry, but still, you can’t concentrate. You can’t help but think that maybe a hundred and one people are trying to contact you and you can’t wait to finally get your phone back. Unfortunately, sometimes, you get home to find that no one has sent you a text or phoned you. So, relax!
Top 2 sign you’re addicted to your mobile phone: When you want to know something — whatever it is, you automatically look it up on your phone.
You are extremely dependent on your mobile phone. It is your camera, mp3 player, newspaper, primary means to contact the world, favourite game, calendar, list of things to do, TV, internet, map, and so much more. For you, your mobile phone is the most reliable gadget in the world, and you can’t imagine life without it.
Top 3 sign you’re addicted to your mobile phone: You constantly check your phone for updates or notifications.
Your finger just can’t stop touching your smartphone to check for updates or notifications. The moment you see one, even if you’re in the middle of something important or your having lunch with your friends or family, your hands will carry on clicking until you see or read the complete post or message.
Top 4 sign you’re addicted to your mobile phone: You have a headache, and yet you still read articles, look at photos and watch videos on your phone.
Your eyes are telling you that you’ve had enough screen time for the day, which may have been caused by excessive computer use or TV viewing, but still, you can’t put your phone away. You associate using your phone to something relaxing, so even if its brightness isn’t helping your eyes and head to recover, you’re still on your phone.
Top 5 sign you’re addicted to your mobile phone: When you need to take note of something, you either add a note on your phone, take a photo of the words, or leave a voice reminder by recording your voice.
You think writing is so passé now. When you are shown some information you need to take note, you add a note on your phone. If the information has over five words, you take a photo of it. If you need to remind yourself to do something and adding a note would take over 3 minutes, you would rather record your voice and listen to it after.
If you got at least 3 of the five signs, you are addicted to your mobile phone — and I bet you know it. 🙂
