Research by Vauxhall Mokka found that almost three-quarters of young adults worry they’re addicted to their mobile phones – typically spending more than 19 hours a week scrolling through their apps.

Older users are just as guilty with almost half (41%) admitting they take their phones into the bathroom – with this figure rising to 77 per cent of 18- to 24-year-olds.

But there is also a wider work-life balance issue, with half of the respondents (50%) saying the shift to a ‘working from home’ culture means that their mobile phone leaves them feeling like they’re never off duty.

Aston spoke to declutter expert and author Tanya Goodin.
