Addiction: Can't. Stop.
Here's a challenge. Don't check your phone. Is it next to you? Can you feel it in your pocket? Are you feeling phantom vibrations? Do you hear the sound of a new notification off in the distance? Are you itching to check the latest updates from those you follow? Do you feel unhappy, anxious, dissatisfied when you're not constantly connected? Maybe you don't, but then, maybe (to some degree) you do. Have you ever wondered why these tools, games, apps and devices have such a hold on us? Think pleasure. Constant pleasure. The buzzes, beeps, notifications, rewards, are delicious candy for your brain. But, as we all know, too much candy isn't good for anyone.
