Do you spend too much time on your phone?

Psychotherapist Hilda Burke is the author of The Phone Addiction Workbook, which is designed to help identify smartphone dependency and develop a healthy relationship with your devices.

Unlike many other books of its kind, it contains questions and exercises which allow you to log your phone use and deal with the issue.

Hilda describes smartphone addiction is a cross-generational problem.

Stats have revealed that Irish people check their phones 57 times per day, which is 40% more than the European average.

She joined us to give some tips on how to reduce social media obsession, notification anxiety and other unhealthy habits.
