If you’re spending all day on your phone playing games, reading gossip, studying sport’s scores, or looking at porn, your brain is forced to take in a lot of information. And while it’s doing all of the ultimately useless tasks you’re asking it to do it’s having a harder time doing the things you need it to do, like recall the facts and figures the boss needs for his presentation, or the time you are supposed to leave work to pick your kids up from school and take them to dance. Oh, you get the idea.
