Phone use isn’t smart

Daily Star - - NEWS -

OUR na­tional ob­ses­sion with smart­phones is get­ting out of hand.

The re­sults of new re­search into our ex­ces­sive mo­bile us­age are damn­ing. Al­most half of us ad­mit it’s af­fect­ing our re­la­tion­ships.

That’s not sur­pris­ing – given that a third of Brits would rather spend time in bed with their phone than their part­ner.

That’s not right. Smart­phones have changed our lives.

Hav­ing ev­ery­thing at our fin­ger­tips is a great thing.

But we need to get the bal­ance right.

We’re turn­ing into an army of in­ter­net ad­dicts.

And we risk los­ing our con­nec­tion with real life.

We must not let our phones drive wedges be­tween our loved ones.

Or turn our chil­dren into screenob­sessed zom­bies.

It’s time to put the phones down and shake off the dig­i­tal daze.
