Most people have a cell phone so they can keep in touch with family and friends, send important messages or calls when they are out and about or for use as a personal media player. All of this can cause greater stress as cell phones allow the user to be contacted at any time. But some people get over attached to their phone which is causing them to be less happy than those who can ignore their phones.
Those addicted to their mobile suffer from higher anxiety as they feel forced to constantly keep in touch with others. Having access to social media sites, such as Facebook, make it difficult for people to separate themselves from their phone.
The study showed the impact it can have on your effectiveness – students in the study received lower marks than those who weren’t reliant on their cell phone.

When almost 94 per cent of all adults own a mobile, is this problem going to get better or worse?
