Is Your Phone Ruining Your Relationships?

There is Value in Putting Your Phone Away

If you are like most people, your phone is probably in your hand right now or it is within reach.  We are attached to our phones.  Our phones can be a one-stop place for any information we need and connect us to the world around us. But like most things, moderation in our use is not only healthy for us, but for our relationships, too.

In fact, the mere presence of our phone in our hand or even sitting on the dinner table is sending an unintended message to those around us, including the people we care about the most.  Sound crazy?  Check out this video from Simon Sinek and how our phones are damaging our relationships.
