Why is it
else has to?
A lot of smartphone use seems to be habitual,
automatic behaviors that we have no awareness of.
ESTIMATED SMARTPHONE USE ACTUAL SMARTPHONE USE
Use can impair attention,
productivity and memory, dampen
creative thinking, increase stress
levels, reduce sleep quality and lead
to “cognitive errors” like forgetting
meetings and walking into people.
FOMOThe uneasy and sometimes
all-consuming feeling that you’re
missing out – that your peers are doing,
in the know about, or in possession of
more or something better than you.
Multitasking comes with a biological
cost that ends up making us feel
tired much more quickly than if we
sustain attention on one thing.
“People eat more, they take more caffeine. Often what you really need in that
moment isn’t caffeine, but just a break. If you aren’t taking regular breaks
every couple of hours, your brain won’t beneﬁt from that extra cup of coffee.”
