I’m not sure we needed another study to prove just how addicted we are to our phones, but this one sure puts that addiction into a new perspective.
A study out of Hungary just found that when people between 18 and 26 had their phones taken away, they started showing the same symptoms as people with PTSD.
That included an elevated heart rate, higher stress levels, and fidgeting and scratching . . . all of which went away as soon as they got their phones back, or even got their hands on ANY phone, not even their own. (Daily Mail)
