20 Signs You're Actually Addicted To Your Phone

May 14, 2015 2 min read

We've all been there. You leave your house, you're ready to take on the day, you arrive at your destination and suddenly you realize: your phone is at home. That feeling seem familiar? A new study on nomophobia (the fear of not having your mobile phone on you) is actually as legitimate of being afraid of heights. In order to to conduct this study, researchers at Iowa State University asked college-aged men and women to answer a series of questions to determine whether or not they were "dependent" on their devices. After extensive questioning, the researches developed a full questionnaire based on the answers given to help identify someone suffering from nomophobia. Nomophobia isn't in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), the handbook that doctors use to diagnose someone with a mental health condition. However, the study authors hope that their findings will help nomophobia make its way into the DSM one day. So - now let's play a fun game and answer the study questions to see where we score in terms of our phone addictions. 1. I would feel uncomfortable without constant access to information through my smartphone. 2. I would be annoyed if I could not look information up on my smartphone when I wanted to do so. 3. Being unable to get the news (e.g., happenings, weather, etc.) on my smartphone would make me nervous. 4. I would be annoyed if I could not use my smartphone and/or its capabilities when I wanted to do so. 5. Running out of battery in my smartphone would scare me. 6. If I were to run out of credits or hit my monthly data limit, I would panic. 7. If I did not have a data signal or could not connect to Wi-Fi, then I would constantly check to see if I had a signal or could find a Wi-Fi network. 8. If I could not use my smartphone, I would be afraid of getting stranded somewhere. 9. If I could not check my smartphone for a while, I would feel a desire to check it. 10. I would feel anxious because I could not instantly communicate with my family and/or friends. 11. I would be worried because my family and/or friends could not reach me. 12. I would feel nervous because I would not be able to receive text messages and calls. 13. I would be anxious because I could not keep in touch with my family and/or friends. 14. I would be nervous because I could not know if someone had tried to get a hold of me. 15. I would feel anxious because my constant connection to my family and friends would be broken. 16. I would be nervous because I would be disconnected from my online identity. 17. I would be uncomfortable because I could not stay up-to-date with social media and online networks. 18. I would feel awkward because I could not check my notifications for updates from my connections and online networks. 19. I would feel anxious because I could not check my email messages. 20. I would feel weird because I would not know what to do.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
