Staging experts will tell you that master suites should be staged as a retreat -- no one stages with a cell phone
  • Excessive cell phone use can lead to health problems as well as increased fatigue, lack of concentration and decreased effectiveness.
  • If you are using your phone for business-related activities, you are ringing your cash register -- if not, you're ringing other people's registers.
  • To reclaim your time, leave the phone out of the bedroom, do a pattern interrupt or follow the 5-second rule.

Your cell phone is the lifeblood of your business — but it also represents one of the greatest hurdles to your success. If your phone is running your life rather than vice versa, it’s time to reclaim your bedroom, your bathroom and your sanity by freeing yourself from its mind-numbing influence over virtually everything you do.
