Phone snub­bing or phubbing’ is gain­ing pop­u­lar­ity and is im­pact­ing friend­ships and re­la­tion­ships as it makes you feel dis­con­nected from the per­son. e live in a world where our happiness quo­tient is mea­sured by the num­ber of likes and com­ments, rather than the mem­ory we are cre­at­ing with the per­son we are with. nfor­tu­nately, phubbing se­verely dis­rupts our pre­sent mo­ment in per­sonal re­la­tion­ships. t leaves the per­son be­ing phubbed feel­ing less cared for. How can we over­come this be­hav­iour, yet not be so­cially un­avail­able Des­ig­nat­ing ded­i­cated re­la­tion­ship time where you and your loved one leave their phone be­hind and fo­cus on lis­ten­ing’ to each other. Dis­abling non-es­sen­tial smart phone no­ti­fi­ca­tions helps in curb­ing the urge to con­stantly know what the world thinks about our pre­sent mo­ment. The smartest fea­ture on a smart­phone is the power we have to de­cide when it needs to be silent’. per­son­ally be­lieve that tech­nol­ogy and so­cial me­dia are im­por­tant parts of mod­ern life, but what we shouldn’t lose in the process is the im­por­tance of be­ing pre­sent and avail­able phys­i­cally, men­tally and emo­tion­ally in the pres­ence of some­one who con­sid­ers hav­ing a con­ver­sa­tion with us im­por­tant.
