You see memes circulating on social media about how the message you are currently sending online is being done as you are sitting on the toilet. And you laugh and nod your head at the meme because you can relate to it so well. And there is a good chance that you saw that meme while you were in the bathroom. That is because the role of your smartphone has replaced the role of the newspaper or magazine in the bathroom.
You sit on the toilet and you sit on there longer than you need to because you are too busy surfing the web on your phone, or you are scrolling through your social media. You may also be texting a friend or a relative back and forth as you are doing your business. However, as much as the phone is keeping you occupied and busy as you are doing your bathroom duties, is it really a good idea to use it in the bathroom? The simple answer to that question is no. It is not a good idea, and you will be fine without getting stimulation from any electronics when you are in the bathroom. You can always come back to it when you are finished doing your business. Let’s go over why you will want to stop using your smartphone when you are sitting on the toilet.
