Put away your cell phone while conversing with someone. It’s harder than it sounds, but it also will make a bigger difference than you would think!  Give the person you are with your full attention. It sends a message of “you are not as important as all these other calls and texts I am getting” when you are constantly looking at your phone. Remember: it’s probably only an hour; people can wait and the world will not end. If you really are expecting a call or text and need to respond asap, excuse yourself to the restroom, or explain to your friend why you are looking at your phone.
