Human beings are pleasure seeking machines. I know I would rather experience bliss over pain, wouldn't you? Unfortunately, this behavior has a dark side. When you experience pleasure from something (i.e. a smartphone) you expect to experience the same amount of pleasure each time, but the brain is wired for novelty. So every time you check your phone you desensitize your brain, which causes a greater stimulus to trigger the same amount of pleasure as before. The same thing occurs when you drink coffee. The first cup of coffee lights your brain up and makes you feel like the king or queen of your land. While the second and third cup does little compared to the first.
