Do you suffer from “Nomophobia”?
London’s Daily Mail just reported about it in a headline: “Nomophobia is the fear of being out of mobile phone contact – and it’s the plague of our 24/7 age.”
The article continues:
“Millions apparently suffer from ‘no mobile phobia’ which has been given the name nomophobia.
“They have become so dependent on their mobile that discovering it is out of charge or simply misplacing it sends stress levels soaring.
“Experts say nomophobia could affect up to 53 per cent of mobile phone users, with 48 per cent of women and 58 per cent of men questioned admitting to experiencing feelings of anxiety when they run out of battery or credit, lose their phone or have no network coverage.”
