CUDDLE UP, PHONES DOWN!
We have an intimate relationship with our cell phones. We sleep with them, we eat with them and we carry them in our pockets. We check our cell phones 47 times a day — 82 times if you are between the ages of 18-24. New York Times
Cuddle Up, Phones Down is an initiatve by RFVA to make people aware of the damage cell phones are doing to their relationships.
is that the average person spends 2 hours, 51 minutes on their cell phones each day. This is quickly becoming a problem in many relationships.
Yet another problem
Phubbing. This is when you are talking to your partner and you get a buzz on your phone. Instead of givinig your undivided attention, you look at your phone.
What this causes
Many relationships are decreasing in satisfaction becasue of the lack of face-to-face communication and quality time. When you spend more time on the phone, you have less time for your loved ones.
Cuddle up, phones down! Our challenge to you is to make time for your relationships. Put your phones away, charge them in another room, turn them off and use that time to love each other.
