Did you KNO, ignoring your phone is actually more of a distractions than actually paying attention to it?
YEA... I KNO!
According to a study from Florida State University, regardless if you pick up your phone or not, just hearing it ring or feeling it vibrate can be distracting. In a study with 212 students, the results showed even the students who made an honest effort to not touch their vibrating or ringing phones still became more distracted than those whose phones were kept on silent.
The author of the study stated:
"Our results suggest that mobile phones can disrupt attention performance even if one does not interact with the device. As mobile phones become integrated into more and more tasks, it may become increasingly difficult for people to set their phones aside and concentrate fully on the task at hand, whatever it may be."
