Are smartphones making us, well, less smart?

Here is a test. Do you remember any of the phone numbers you’ve saved under a heading like mom, dad, sibling, child, etc. if you do, wow, that’s great! However, if you don’t, I’d argue that we are placing so much of a reliance upon a device that we are forgetting the powerful database called our brain.

Next time you want to use your smartphone to remember a phone number or work out a travel plan to a store, take a moment to think for yourself and challenge yourself to remember. Little by little you’ll start to see that you can and probably should retain this information in your brain. Release yourself from the shackles of the smart phone 😂!
