Nomophobia? Can You Function Daily without Your Cell Phone?

Nomophobia is “the fear of being out of mobile phone contact”.

The term, an abbreviation for “no-mobile-phone phobia”, was coined during a 2010 study by the UK Post Office who commissioned YouGov, a UK-based research organization to look at anxieties suffered by mobile phone users. [Source: Wikipedia.]

Nomophobia - fear of being without a cell phone

Do you ever disconnect from your mobile device? If so, do you have feelings of anxiety when you do? Are you guilty of engaging in any of the above situations?

I don’t tend to use my phone when I am driving, but I am guilty of reading it just before I go to bed…and staying up later than I had planned. Lost sleep is not conducive to high performance the next day.
