5. Stop Having an Affair with Your Smartphone! (Or iPad!)  TimeManagement

        5 Signs You May Be Having a an Affair With Your Smartphone:

  1. Taking Your Phone/iPad to Bed – When you get into bed, does your smartphone join you? Is it the last “person” that you talk to before going to bed?
  2. Checking Email Before Bed – Do you check email or Facebook before going to bed? And then again in the morning before getting up?
  3. Ignoring Your Family or Spouse – Does your family have to constantly compete for attention with your devices? Do they have to “snap you back to reality” when you are in another world with your phone?
  4. Answering Your Phone When You Are With Others – Do you answer your phone no matter where you are or what you are doing? (Hint: If you are answering your phone in the bathroom, you have lost control…)
  5. Letting Your Phone Interrupt Your Life – Do you prioritize phone beeps, dings, and chimes above people who you are meeting with in person?
