We touch our phones over 2,600 times per day. It can be a major time suck and it also contributing to our society's growing anxiety. 

Luckily Robert Plotkin has a plan for us. Robert is an expert in mindful uses of technology. Good thing too, since he's uniquely qualified to help. He's a MIT grad in Computer Science, a patent attorney for emerging technology and founder of Technology For Mindfulness

We're all guilty of over-using our phone: when we're not even thinking about it, when waiting in a line, as a reaction to ordinary down-time.
