Signs that you should probably put your phone down

Hi everyone! Set the scene: Its pouring down outside and you’re safe in the confines of your home ๐ŸŒง๏ธ You’ve just sat down after a long day with a mug of tea/coffee (whatever you get your kicks from ๐Ÿ˜‚) and you’ve deigned this the time to catch up on reading all those lovely blog posts! You pick up your phone only to be met by an awful sight, me telling you to put it back down again (moodkiller huh?) How very dare me! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Well don’t worry, that is not the situation AT ALL!

It’s not my place to tell you to put your phone down, this post is just for fun but on a serious note there can come a time when you really should give it a break and some of the following reasons highlight that. Here are the signs that you should probably put your phone down:

โ€ข A family member is staring daggers at you

This is the first sign for a reason as if this is happening your phone should disappear quicksmart ๐Ÿ˜‚ A series of thoughts run through your mind “how long have I not been paying attention to that person? Were they talking at all? Did I just give a random answer?” Break the ice and put your phone down or else it looks like you’re obsessed with it and live in the real world for a bit.

โ€ข You’re getting cranky and/or giving short, snappy answers to those who talk to you

I know you don’t want to be that person so don’t be! ๐Ÿ˜‚

โ€ข You’re mindlessly scrolling

You can’t think of a solid reason to be using it and are only doing so for the sake of it ๐Ÿ˜‚ I do this sometimes and the amount of times I see the same things pushes me to accept the fact that its time to put it down!

โ€ข You’re going to bed soon

You know as well as I do that it’s a bad idea to go on your phone when you should be or are about to be sleeping ๐Ÿ˜ด It wakes you right up making it almost impossible to drop off into a deep sleep.

โ€ข You’ve got a to do list that is a mile long ๐Ÿ“œ

Make a start on it or else none of it will get done! (The smart answer to this one is that your to do list is on your phone ๐Ÿ˜‚).

โ€ข It is upsetting you

Now this is that serious sign I was telling you about earlier! If you’ve seen something that has upset you then come out of it, put your phone down and talk to someone straight away or definitely get in touch with someone on your phone (its a hall pass! ๐Ÿ˜‚).

โ€ข You’ve been using it for a LONG time and I mean a LONG time

Give your eyes a rest! I mean, when was the last time you blinked? You can’t remember can you? ๐Ÿ˜‚

โ€ข The battery has gone

Are you really going to keep staring at a blank screen? I should rephrase this one as if your battery is dead there wouldn’t be anything on the screen to look at ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚

โ€ข You had forgotten where you were until you looked up

This is a dangerous situation! ๐Ÿ˜‚

โ€ข You’ve finished the internet! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Seen and done everything that there is to see and do ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ˜‚ I applaud you but now it’s time to put your phone down until some new things are out there! Go take over the world with your infinite amount of knowledge!

Thank you for reading! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Can you think of any more reasons someone should put their phone down? ๐Ÿ˜‚ I hope you enjoyed this post! Have a lovely day โค๏ธ

  1. I loved this post hahhaah so funny! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿคฃ I also use my phone too much so itโ€™s important to put it down more. I also do it when Iโ€™m anxious and just want to be away from a situation. It helps me cope sometimes. Using it before bed is bad but I still do itโ€ฆ
