There's a bunch of evidence that suggests that excessive use of cell phones and other devices can have negative effects on our mental health and well-being.
There are many published studies that show people who spend more time on their phones are more likely to experience symptoms of anxiety and depression, low self-esteem, attention deficit and difficulty communicating and problems with sleep.
So knowing all that, it's really important to be mindful of our phone use and to use phones and other devices in a balanced way, and to take breaks from screens to rest and recharge. I'm personally always trying to be more mindful of my own phone and device use by restricting my time on my phone, wearing blue light glasses, and even deleting social media apps occasionally when I feel like I need to pull back. It's important to be mindful of how much time is spent on our devices.
