Put it down! Your phone, that is.

I can feel parents praising and adolescents cringing from here. But its true! We all need to work on putting our phones down, myself included. Adults and children alike are addicted to their phones and we are paying a heavy price for it. Standing in line for food? Look at your phone. Alone with no one to talk to?

At the same time, it can be pretty cool to see all of your friends again or maybe you were just starting to feel painfully bored. Regardless of how you feel, school is back and you’re in it for the long haul. So the question becomes: How do I balance the pleasant with the unpleasant?
