“Phubbing is the practice of snubbing others in favor of our mobile phones. We’ve all been there, as either victim or perpetrator. We may no longer even notice when we’ve been phubbed (or are phubbing), it has become such a normal part of life. However, research studies are revealing the profound impact phubbing can have on our relationships and well-being.” Psychology Today
“So, the next time you’re with another human and you feel tempted to pull out your phone—stop. Put it away. Look them in the eyes, and listen to what they have to say. Do it for them, do it for yourself, do it to make the world a better place.” Psychology Today
Today, say no to phubbing and (once you are on your own) take time to read the Psychology Today article and learn more about this new ‘norm’ in our interactions and its impact. Or click on the source of the image for a ‘short history of Phubbing’.
