Cell Phones are Distracting Even When Not In Use

Your cell phone is a distraction even if you aren’t using it:

Even if you go all day without touching your cell phone once, just having it visible nearby may distract you from complex tasks, according to new research in the journal Social Psychology.

It’s possible, I suppose, that this merely because it’s still new technology to us and we haven’t developed the discipline to use it wisely.  Whatever the case, meanwhile, it seems like it would a good idea to try putting your cell phone out of sight, and possibly out of convenient reach before sitting down to work on a task.   With the cell phone at hand, it seems I am seldom even interested in the discipline of ‘doing what I am doing.’
