What an Easy Way to Break a Bad Habit that Can Be Deadly

What an easy way to break a bad habit that can be deadly.

Inspired by my daughter’s technique of tying a piece of yarn around her finger to remember something for school, I decided to paint my thumbnail red so every time I picked up my phone from behind the wheel, all I would see was a big red thumb reminding me to put the phone away. As silly as it sounds, it totally worked. And now my hope is that it’ll work for everyone else. One red thumbnail at a time.

What an amazing way to avoid the temptation of using your phone while driving!
