How Many Times A Day Do You Check Your Phone?

A recent article in Time Magazine reported on a survey by software company Locket that stated that, on average, people check their cellphones a staggering 110 times each day. The same survey reported that some individuals go even further, checking their phones as often as 900 times each day!

 

These are shocking figures, which probably lead you to wonder how many times you check your phone each day.

 

One thing is for certain; checking an electronic device as obsessively as the people in the study is rather excessive. The image of people sitting together in bars or living rooms, with their phones capturing all of their attention, is a common (and rather depressing) sign of modern times.


 

If you think you check your phone too much, there are a few things you can do to break the habit. Here are some ideas:

 

Force yourself to break the cycle of looking at your phone just in case there’s a new message or email.

 

You can set alert tones for new messages. If you don’t hear these tones, checking just for the sake of it is rather futile anyway.


 

Ban cellphones from the dinner table.

 

Mealtimes with family and friends should provide an opportunity for personal interaction, and not be just another opportunity to lose yourself in cyberspace.

 

 

Consider leaving your phone at home when you engage in certain activities.

 

If you go for a relaxing walk, leave your phone charging at home: The new messages can wait.

 

Most smartphones have features to help you control when you can be interrupted by new emails.

 

If you don’t need to deal with work emails outside of normal working hours, configure your phone to only collect these messages during the day. This will leave you with more uninterrupted relaxation time.
