You sometimes, unconsciously, spend most of your time texting instead of walking.
You get easily distracted whenever there is a text message or a call in your smartphone.
You casually accuse yourself of being addicted to your smartphone and think of it as no big deal.
And the last one is, you might be reading this post using your smartphone.
If you are, then you are a certified smartphone addict.
Here are some definitive signs that you should put down your phone and get back on track and rediscover your life and what it is all about.

- Dependent and the feeling of loneliness
You are dependent of your smartphone every time and you isolate yourself sometimes to the real world because even spending time with your friends is all about the screen rather than interacting with them normally with one another.
- Keep on posting selfies and pictures on Social Media
When was the last you didn’t post any pictures on Instagram? Even your meal you snap a picture and post it on Instagram or on any social media accounts that you have rather than having a normal, healthy eating habit.
After all, what’s the point of having a picture if you never even allowed yourself to fully experience it?
- Looking at your phone’s screen all the time
You can’t help yourself to look at your phone even while you are about to sleep, to eat or at work. That is just so sad and completely unacceptable.

You never actually chill out like an actual chilling out with friends and family the normal way because when you turn off your mobile phone, it can create some initial anxiety.
- You’ve experienced near death situation because of texting while walking
Yes, you can read that on newspapers, magazines and televisions. It is possible because you tend to put your whole focus on your mobile phone than the actual happenings around you. Aside from texting while walking, there are a lot of cases of hold-up because of mobile phone.
