When it comes to smartphone addiction—to borrow from internet parlance—the struggle is real. As much as we all love to browse Facebook, snap photos (for Instagram, of course), and check e-mail and texts on the go, research shows that constantly checking your phone increases stress, rather than lessening it.

Our phone-dependency has also been linked to other health problems, including "text neck," back pain and poor sleep to name a few. And still, we can't put them down.

That's where artist Molly Mcleod comes in. The designer created some super useful iPhone wallpapers to remind people to stop and smell the roses, rather than taking pictures of them.

If you're among the sufferers of compulsive smartphone-checking, download one and use it to remind yourself to look up—or you may miss something truly special. Plus, they're pretty funny.
