Your iPhone is amazing. And that’s part of its problem. Every time you’re at a loose end, waiting in line, or just think that you’re bored, you pull it out and graze those Home screen icons to find something that might interest you.
This, you may not be surprised to know, is unhealthy behavior. At best, it’s a nervous habit that turns into a compulsion. At worst, it can cause anxiety, give you square eyes, and disconnect you from the delights of the world around you. And if you are creative in any way, the constant stimulation from your iPhone crowds out any opportunity for your imagination to drift, or for you to notice inspiration and oddities in the smells, sights and sensations of the real world.
Which is why you should follow the advice of app developer Readdle, and stop checking your phone all the damn time.
