How often has your child or friend turned to their phone during a social event to text, answer a call or who knows what else?

That's not to say technology is all bad. Cell phones can save lives in an emergency and keep us connected when we cannot be near loved ones.

Texting to your partner can cause relationship problems, spending too much time on the computer instead of spending quality time with your spouse has also been found to lead to lower marital satisfaction. The video below shows how disconnected we have become. The scenarios are familiar to all of us.

Rather than relying on your phone to capture life's moments and for communication, consider putting it down today. Go visit a friend and talk face to face. Take a walk in a safe, populated green area with a buddy without your phone that is proven to give the brain a creative boost, lift depression and boost immunity. Spend time looking at your partner - and definitely - do not take your cell phone to bed or anywhere near the bedroom.
