Science shows that your IQ is lower when your smartphone is near, but not when you use these three steps.
For how indispensable our smartphones have become — can we just call them phones now — they might be doing us more harm than good. Research from the University of Texas suggests that we’re measurably less intelligent (read: dumber) when our phones are within sight. According to a 2017 report by analytics firm Flurry, we spend five hours per day on these IQ-shrinking devices. But this doesn’t mean our pocket technology is inherently bad. We just need to learn how to manage our phones for maximum benefit.
I’ve grown a lifestyle coaching business in part by teaching executive-level men and women how to do just that. Curious to learn how make the most of your phone?
