59 Percent of Us Say We Are Addicted to Our Phones
How long can you go without your phone and the Internet? Have you ever tried to detox from your phone?
In a survey the DailyMail said:
- That 25 percent of us have texted someone in the same room. Okay, I'm guilty. But it was only because I was texting a coworker during a staff meeting. Hmm, should I be admitting this?
- 34 percent of us have tried to do a little internet detox. Yep, I'm guilty. Of course it's easy to do when you're on vacation or on a camping trip in the middle of nowhere and there is no cell phone signal.
- 47 percent of the people who took the survey admitted to losing sleep because they were on the Internet. And 59 percent of people said they are addicted to their phone.
It's really strange to think about what we did before the smart phone. Did we just sit around and twiddle our thumbs?
Here's a funny little video. How many of the 10 signs can you relate to?
