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.]
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.
