The use of mobile is invading more and more every aspect of our lives. Your partnet, one of the vital points, can also be affected by the use of mobile devices. Do you think this isn’t affecting you? We’ll show you how your phones are more present than you imagine.
Studies are beginning to show that the use of mobiles in a couple can affect it without our noticing. Dr. Nancy Etcoff, an expert in Mind-Brain Behavior and the Science of Happiness at Harvard University conducted a digital study between November 30, 2017 and December 26, 2017. About 4,418 mobile users participated, between the ages of 16 to 65 in the United States, Brazil, France and India. The study revealed that many of the users preferred using their phone rather than having a conversation with their loved ones.
On the other hand, Kaspersky Lab carried out a survey in 18 countries, with more than 18 thousand couples participants, each couple with more than a six months of stable relationship. The study revealed data as chilling as that, although 72% of respondents say they have nothing to hide from their partner in the content of their conversations and their phone in general, 61% say they do not want their partner to review your device.
In addition, at least 55% of the couples reported discussing habitually due to the excessive use of devices.
At OffTime we know that your partner is very important to you, so we bring some tips so you can enjoy your partner and recover the spark without your devices bothering you:
– Use OffTime together and set times together. During those moments, the app will help you to disconnect and enjoy the moments together without anything distracting you.
– When you are eating at home or in a restaurant, do not put your mobile on the table. Studies show that the presence of a cell phone, with the possibility that it may sound or vibrate, can inhibit the free flow of the conversation.
– Designate “phone free” zones. Decide as a couple the areas of your home, such as the living room and the kitchen, which should be free of technology. This way you will take advantage of every occasion with your partner to enjoy cooking together or watch a movie without distractions.
Thanks to these tips and the use of OffTime app, you will enjoy those moments wit the ones that really matter.
