Reducing smartphone addiction

reducing smartphone addiction

I’m a disciplined and organized person when it comes to time. But, here’s my biggest struggle — smartphone addiction.

I’m on my phone way too much in general. If I have a notification, I feel an urgent need to open it. I stay in bed too long in the morning because of my phone.

These are a few tips I’ve done for the past few weeks that helped reduce my smartphone addiction.

Try to set limits on the amount of time you spend or the number of times you check your phone in a day.

Have a conscious effort to take breaks from your phone by putting it away during certain times of the day.

Turn off non-essential notifications on your phone.

Keep your phone out of reach when you’re not using it to avoid the temptation to check it.

I’ve found that it’s okay to use my phone during work hours, but it’s important to make sure it’s not taking over your life.
