In this day and age, it's normal to be a bit dependent on your phone. And if you're attached to a mobile device, chances are, you want to take it everywhere. We totally get it. But there's one place where you should never do that.
The bathroom isn't the most hygienic place to begin with, for obvious reasons. But if you take your cell in there, you're putting your health at an even more serious (and typically unnecessary!) risk than usual.
By using your phone while sitting on the toilet, you could potentially be exposing yourself to some nasty germs. Think salmonella and E. Coli. And they could be riskier than you might think. After all, touching anything in the bathroom and then touching your phone before washing your hands is an easy thing to do.
Even worse, if you do pick up germs, your phone could remain contaminated for at least a couple of days. So even if they're your own germs, you could still get someone else sick.
In any case, we could all use a bit of time to unplug. And we think keeping your health in tip-top shape is the perfect excuse to do so!
