Phantom Phone Vibrations and Anxiety: How Your Mind is Tricked



Phantom Phone Vibrations and Anxiety: How Your Mind is Tricked

You know you turned off your smartphone, but you are still feeling the vibrations in your pocket. This is a common issue known as phantom phone vibrations, and it is linked to anxiety. Researchers have found that an estimated nine out of 10 people suffer from this mind trick.

A study from the Georgia Institute of Technology focused on the common phantom phone vibrations that many people experience. Dr. Robert Rosenberger points out that the pressure to respond instantly to messages and phone calls is creating anxiety. This leads to the phantom phone vibrations that you may have throughout the day. Although your phone is turned off, you are still worried about missing a text or call.

Your mind and body rarely get a rest from technology. The dependence on smartphones has created its own set of problems. Despite the benefits of smartphones, it is important not to overlook how they are affecting the human mind and relationships. Phantom phone vibrations show how dependent people have become on these devices and how anxiety controls them.

According to researchers, phantom phone vibrations may be changing our brains. This is why Dr. Larry Rosen is concerned about the impact technology is having on people. He recommends that everyone take a short technology break once in a while and stop checking their smartphones every second. Dr. Larry Rosen understands that many people depend on their phones for work and family updates, so he suggests taking small breaks such as 30 minutes a day.

Phantom phone vibrations are a real phenomenon, and they affect many people. It is important to recognize their link to anxiety and try to control them. You can follow the doctor’s simple advice and take short breaks from technology during the day or night, so your mind and body can rest.

    This actually happens to me all the time. I think I feel the phone vibrating against my leg but the phone isn’t even in my pocket!

    I use my cell phone very little and have the lowest phone plan possible! I know I have anxiety when the phone makes that vibrate noise because I do when I hear other phones go off! I didn’t grow up with a cell phone or computer so no worries I’m too plugged in! I think those that need to use so much tech for their jobs do need that break. It’s changing our bodies, as well as our brains I believe.

    I am pretty sure that has happened to me before! It really does help to take a break from your phone! I’ll be the first to admit that there are days that I check mine SO much! My husband will sometimes just turn his off for a few hours…he figures he didn’t have one for many years that he will be okay without it for a few hours!

      Thanks for sharing Christina. I think the younger ones are more connected to their phones 🙂

    I pay $10 a month for my phone service. I turn off my phone when I get in the car. I’m glad I’m not tied to my phone.
