Chatting, posting stories on Instagram, clicking pictures, and staying hooked to endless notifications have become part and parcel of our lives. But when it comes to our very smart handheld devices–it’s all about striking the right balance. 

Did you know a survey says that 44% of people can’t even live without their cell phone? This phenomenon, by the way, is called nomophobia.

In fact, some people check their phones without any reason. This addiction has tamed us so much that many of us wait for a traffic signal to turn red just so that we can check our phones while driving. And don’t even get us started on bathroom selfies.
