Trade-in website BankMyCell has ran some surveys to find out just how bad smartphone addiction is today. This data looks into factors such as time, social interactions and the health repercussions for cell phone overuse with you and your family. Some ways to reduce smartphone addiction and overuse are to use in built software or apps to monitor your usage or consciously reduce the amount of time you spend or ban its use in certain aspects of your life. For example, turning it off before bed, banning it from the bedroom or communicable family rooms completely – how bad would it be to not have a phone out at the dinner table or on the toilet right?
