Nomophobia is the fear of being without your smartphone which affects 40% of the population.

In today’s world the majority of people (mainly adolescents) base their worth and popularity on the number of likes/followers they get on social media. This is destroying our mindset and reality because our worth, or popularity, isn’t reflected based on numbers!

If we are constantly glued to our phones to constantly check our ‘social status’ then we miss out on social interactions in the physical world. My voice is my power and I’ll use it to encourage people to have a digital detox every so often in their lives.
