Is snubbing someone you’re talking to to look at a cell phone.
Just think about how often a conversation stalls because your friends (or you) have pulled out a phone and descended into an Instagram black hole. It's annoying and may be hurting your relationships.
Phubbing is meant to connect you, presumably, with someone through social media or texting. But it actually can severely disrupt your present-moment, in-person relationships and in the end makes you feel even less connected.
Creating and following strict technology rules, such as putting your phone away while eating dinner, can help you form new habits. Other attention-based practices, like meditation and mindfulness, may also help re-train your attentional capacity.
