Put Your Phone in a Timeout

We’re about to deliver news that might be alarming…

There is reason to believe that the mere presence of your smartphone can reduce brain power.

In a recent study, participants were asked to sit at a computer and complete a series of tests that required full concentration. The ones who did the best were the ones with their smartphone out of sight and out of mind.

So, today your task is simply to keep your phone in your pocket or handbag. It doesn’t need sunlight the way you do!

Having your phone in sight has been shown to reduce focus because part of your brain is actively working to not pick up or use the phone.

Don’t let the phone have all the control over you.
