10 Ways Your Phone is Sabotaging Your Life

Your smartphone is supposed to help you connect with your loved ones and live a more productive life. While that’s certainly possible, our phones can often be more of a distraction than a help for many of us. Do you think of your phone as a needed friend, a foe, or something in between?

Your phone may be sabotaging your life if you find yourself texting when you should be talking, watching when you should be participating, and scrolling when you should be working. From the very young to the old, we are being negatively affected by the overuse of phones. Sitting in a restaurant with my family, I noticed a husband and wife probably in their late 70s eating dinner together. The gray haired man was occupied with his phone the entire time, while his sweetheart stared into space. This is not how a couple’s night out is supposed to look at any age. Technology is quickly advancing, but what about our personal relationships?

Here are 10 ways your phone may be sabotaging your life. Take a look and see if any of these issues ring true in your life.
