Is your phone the first thing you reach for when you wake up? And the last thing you see before you sleep? Do you find the hours slip away as you idly scroll through your social media timeline? In short, are you addicted to your phone? If so, How to Break Up with Your Phone is here to help. How to Break Up With Your Phone is a smart, practical and useful plan to help you conquer your mobile phone addiction in just 30 days - and take back your life in the process. Recent studies have shown that spending extended time on our phones affects our ability to form new memories, think deeply, focus and absorb information, and the hormones triggered every time we hear our phones buzz both add to our stress levels and are the hallmark signs of addiction. In How to Break Up with Your Phone, award-winning science journalist Catherine Price explores the effects that our constant connectivity is having on our brains, bodies, relationships, and society at large and asks, how much time do you really want to spend on your phone? Over the course of 30 days, Catherine will guide you through an easy-to-follow plan that enables you to identify your goals, priorities and bad habits, tidy your apps, prune your email, and take time away. Lastly, you will create a new, healthier relationship with your phone and establish habits and routines to ensure this new relationship sticks. You don't have to give up your phone forever; instead you will be more mindful not only of how you use your phone, but also about how you choose to spend the precious moments of your life.

Elsker du din mobil, men synes at den stjæler for meget af din tid? Er der pludselig gået både hele og halve timer, mens du lige har tjekket vejret og dine venners opdateringer eller et par andre i øjeblikket uundværlige ting? Måske er forelskelsen i din kære telefon blevet til træthed, en følelse af stresset tomhed og småfrustration. Så er det her bogen for dig. Hvis du da ikke i stedet vil give den til en, du kender, der nærmest ikke kan slide blikket fra sine apps. Den prisbelønnede videnskabsjournalist Catherine Price har prøvet det på sin egen krop og dykker her ned i, hvor hurtigt og effektivt vores smartphones har overtaget vores liv – og hvorfor vi bliver så afhængige. Hun indleder bogen med et brev til sin mobil: Du er den sidste, jeg rører ved, inden jeg går i seng, og den første jeg rækker ud efter om morgenen. Helt enkelt beskriver hun, hvordan denne afhængighed opstår, og hvordan man på 30 dage kan få et bedre og sundere forhold til sin telefon. For lige som med alle andre forhold kan det gøre underværker at tage det op til overvejelse indimellem. Sidegevinsten er at blive meget mere glad og mindre stresset i livet igen og at genopdage vigtige sider af det, man helt havde glemt. Og bare rolig: det betyder ikke, at du skal leve uden!
