Abstract

Like many teens today, I am a victim of cell phone addiction. Over the course of the spring 2017 semester I recorded my phone usage with the aim to quantify the degree of my addiction. I am using an iPhone application called Moment, which records the amount of time I spend on each application, the number of times I pick up my phone, and when I first and last used my phone during the day. I decided to keep track of the applications I want to minimize my time on which include Snapchat, Instagram, Netflix, YouTube and Messages. I am also tracking my usage of an application called LINE which is how I communicate with my parents since I am out of my home country. This is the only application I wish to use more. Along with application tracking, I am also keeping record of my mood during the day on a scale from 1-5, 1 being “horrible” and 5 being “amazing”. I keep track of my sleeping times by using the first and last used information, information provided by Moment.
