806 Health Tip: The Power Of Your Phone
Have you ever had that moment? You know the one I am talking about. You are on your way to work and you can't find your phone. It's not in your purse. It's not in your car seat. Where exactly is it?
You really have no idea. You remember it being on the bathroom sink. Maybe it was last on the kitchen table. All you know is that it is not with you now. How do you feel about that? Are you one that can make it through the day without it? Or do you immediately break out into a sweat. What are you going to do?
Nobody can get ahold of you. You also can't get in touch with anyone. I mean how many numbers do you actually know? Not many. If my life depended on it I could probably only get ahold of my daughter, my mom, and maybe my ex husband....oh wait my aunt too. Just not too many people are coming to mind with numbers I have memorized.
That may be part of the panic. Not having that technology at your fingertips. Well you are not alone. Did you know that forty-three percent of people say they really would have a tough time making through a whole day without their phone. Count me in that one. One out of eight said forget it not doable....maybe move me to that list.
I would go into a panic for sure. So much of my life is dependent on that dang phone. Not surprising that women are more likely to say it would be a problem. Yep again my biggest concern is my daughter needing me and not being able to get in touch with me. Really. My phone may not ring for days.....but that one time my daughter has car problems or something. I'm out. I couldn't handle it.
Why are we so dependent? A lot of it is the need to fill time. I mean how many times do you grab your phone just to scroll through social media? Or if you are like me....don't call me. Nope! Send me a text. You will get a much better response.
