Research has proven that phone usage increases dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is a chemical that signals to your brain that you are enjoying yourself. Here's some food for thought - remember the last time you had fun and it was over way too soon? Now try to think how phone usage can affect your day. Is it a wonder why people feel like there aren't too many hours in a day? If you spend your time playing with your phone you'll soon realize that your day is slipping away without you noticing how much time has passed. You start to feel like you haven't gotten anything done - which, you're probably right.
