Moodoff Day Examines Smartphone Addiction With Worldwide Movement To Disconnect For A Day

A 2012 survey by the Pew Research Center showed that 46 percent of all adults in the US own a smartphone, with 44 percent exhibited extreme separation anxiety when separated from their phone. Those who have acknowledged their addiction and shelved the phone experienced phantom vibration symptoms.

Much like a drug addict or alcoholic, even though smartphone users are aware that they're endangering their lives by texting and driving, they can't stop. Email, texts and communicating through social networks generate enjoyable feelings, similar to those experienced by gamblers. Those with a smartphone addiction are unable to eat a meal or sit through a movie without checking their mobile device.

The 2013 international Moodoff Day provides participants with the opportunity to experience "Smart hours for Smart people without smartphones." Just five hours is all it takes to raise awareness of the dangers of smartphone addiction and the deadly consequences of texting and driving. It's the perfect time to put down the smartphone, leave the virtual world behind, and reconnect with loved ones in real time.
