Cell phones have already replaced your camera, calendar and alarm clock; don’t let them replace your friends and family too! In this video, I go into what cellphone addiction is (the habit loop) and how to get rid of it in two easy steps.

As social beings, we biologically need to connect with others in order to be happy, healthy and whole. But when we neglect those things and turn to escape mechanisms (like a cell phone!) it starts to take a toll on our quality of life. When the quality of real connections with friends, family, and society starts to diminish, or productivity and happiness are affected, something needs to change!

How are cell phones addictive?

Cell phone usage affects dopamine levels which are part of the pleasure and reward systems in our brains. There is a great satisfaction and reward that comes with getting a text response or notification or when we scan and find something exciting on social media.
