It’s the fear of losing your phone. More than two-thirds of us get an anxiety attack the moment we’ve misplaced our phone. Without it, we feel naked. Even dropping a connection or suffering with a low battery gives us fright. It is called “nomophobia” - or “No Mobile Phone Phobia”. The warning signs are:

  • Unable to go off to the bathroom without taking your phone
  • Obsessively checking for missed calls, emails and texts
  • Constantly topping up your battery life
