4 signs you're addicted to your cell phone - and 4 ways to recover

I couldn't believe my eyes. It was a sunny midday afternoon and traffic was bustling in downtown Seattle. A flurry of people rushed along a crosswalk as I waited at the light. One woman in particular caught my eye, she was pushing a baby in a stroller and seemed distracted. One of her hands pushed the stroller, and the other held a smartphone.


As she got to the middle of the crosswalk, she gave the stroller a slight push, which freed both of her hands. She then cradled her cell phone

and started texting. For a few seconds, the stroller moved along without a driver; in the middle of busy downtown Seattle.
