Are you looking at your phone enough first thing in the morning?

YOU wake up, you turn your alarm off and you spend a solid 10 minutes staring at your phone screen, just like you did before you went to sleep. But are you doing it enough? 

What do you look at first? 

A) The news, the gossip, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, return to step one, repeat indefinitely B) Oh, you know, a couple of websites, see if there’s anything new before I go for a shower

How often do you look at your phone throughout the morning? 

A) There are moments when I look at other things – my breakfast, the road, the imploring faces of my children – but I keep them to an absolute minimum B) Occasionally I remember there’s a site I’ve not checked, or I look back at something I’d like to see again from last night, but overall not that often

Does looking at your phone ever disturb your sleep? 

A) No, but that’s because I sleep sitting up staring at my phone, dreaming of my phone B) No, once I’ve had a good hard look at my phone I drift straight off


Mostly As: You could definitely squeeze in some more phone time. Have you considered skipping breakfast?

Mostly Bs: Your phone use is shamefully lax. Are you… are you just looking at porn? What’s wrong with you?
