People these days are heavily dependent on their smartphones. They find it difficult to be without their phone for even a few hours, let alone a day. This dependence on technology has become a major cause of concern, as it is affecting people's mental health, productivity, and interpersonal relationships.

The main reason why people find it difficult to be without their phone is the fear of missing out (FOMO). With the world becoming more connected than ever, people are constantly bombarded with updates on social media, news, and messages from friends and family. This constant flow of information has created an addiction to always be connected, which in turn makes people feel anxious when they are unable to access their phone.
