NATIONAL CELL PHONE COURTESY MONTH
National Cell Phone Courtesy Month during July encourages us to evaluate our cellular habits and consider others before we reach for our phone.
Our phones have become an integral part of our lives. We schedule events, organize shopping lists, order birthday presents, and communicate all from this one, small device. Do we even make a phone call any more?
Phone courtesy has always been in fashion, but when they became smart, it seems we lost a few brain cells. The month strives to bring polite phone usage back in style.
Check out these 7 Easy Rules to Mobile Phone Etiquette. Once you do you will be on your way to better relationships.
When we put the people around us before our mobile devices, we strengthen our relationships. Our phones are a tool and shouldn’t get in the way of the more important things in our lives.
Our phones are tools. They shouldn’t replace every social context in our lives. Practice a little courtesy and gain improved relationships everywhere you go. Encourage your friends and families to join you throughout the month. Use #CellPhoneCourtesyMonth to share on social media.
