We're all guilty of spending too much time on our phones. It's an obsession.

Whether we're constantly updating Facebook or Twitter with photos or status updates, checking in on Four Square, keeping our phone on the table over dinner or videoing whatever it is we're enjoying, we all know we do it. We all know that we're living our lives through the screen on our smartphone…

But we have a feeling that this video, which has gone viral with over 36 million views, will leave you with a very strong urge to leave your phone in your bag today.

Check it out:

Painful, but true. How many of us can say that we've never obsessively checked our phones through dinner? Or been ignored by our friends for a moment as they check their social networks? Or paused an important moment to document it on Instagram?


We all need to remember to put our phones DOWN every once in a while and just live life - maybe that should be everyone's resolution for 2014.
