10 Ways Your Phone is Sabotaging Your Life

  • Arlene Pellicane

Do you find it easy to text, but not as easy to talk?  It’s great to text a grocery list or meeting place, but it’s not so great for meaningful conversation.  You can text “Love you” to a family member, and that’s positive.  But to stay close to family or friends, there has to be more.  Strong relationships are not built on texting.  When it comes to spending time together in person, put the phones away and talk and laugh with each other instead.
