An object that has made life much easier but on the other hand has taken away the essence of being a human. Undoubtedly, there are a majority of benefits offered by this device but its addiction is a major problem as well.

Mobile addiction is a problem present in people of all age groups, be it children, teens or adults. It is really important to deal with it as it has a lot of hazardous effects on the mental as well as physical health of the people. It also causes wastage of energy and time. A few steps that can be taken to reduce smartphone addiction are:

# Set Limits: Set a daily limit and use your cellphone only for that much of time. Fix curfew hours after which cell phones should not be used by you. This will help in better routines and sound sleep.

# Turn phone off before sleeps: One of the best ways to take a sound sleep is by switching off the cell phones. Some of the researches have proved that the rays emitted by cell phones are harmful to the body.

# Replace: Try to use calculators, clocks, notepads  etc. instead of the virtual forms. Switching on the phone to check time is a major distraction and the person ends up using the phone for a longer period.

# Switch to feature phones: If you are suffering from severe addiction then try switching from smartphones to conventional feature phones like Nokia, even if its for a few weeks.
