About the Book

Is your phone the first thing you reach for in the morning and the last thing you touch before bed?

Award-winning journalist Catherine Price presents a practical, hands-on plan to break up—and then make up—with your phone. The goal isn’t to get rid of your phone; it’s to create a long-term relationship that feels good.

You’ll discover how phones and apps are designed to be addictive, and learn how the time we spend on them damages our abilities to focus, think deeply, and form new memories. You’ll then make customized changes to your settings, apps, environment, and mindset that will enable you to take back control of your life.  

Packed with tested strategies and practical tips, How to Break Up With Your Phone is an essential, life-changing guide for everyone who owns a smartphone.

How to Break Up With Your Phone is being published in 26 countries and translated into 18 languages.



We’ve created a collection of downloadable resources that you can use to help you and your loved ones successfully create healthier relationships with your phones.
