In a digitally driven world, managing phone screen time has become essential for mental well-being

Are you looking to cut down on your phone screen time?
Here are five actionable steps to help you regain control:

1. Track Your Usage

Start by monitoring how much time you spend on your phone. Awareness is the first step toward change.

2. Set Limits

Use third-party apps (ex: Roots) to set daily limits for individual apps.

3. Designate Phone-Free Times

Establish specific times of the day or activities during which you won't use your phone, such as during meals or right before bed.

4. Turn Off Non-Essential Notifications

Reduce distractions by silencing unnecessary alerts.

5. Find Alternative Activities

Engage in hobbies or activities that don't involve screens to occupy your time and attention. For example: Keep a book next to your phone and when you feel the urge to reach for your phone, pick up the book instead!

Bonus! Create a Speed Bump

Try putting a hair tie or rubber band around your phone so it gets in the way of scrolling mindlessly.

By implementing these tips, you can start to reduce your screen time, improve your focus, and enhance your overall quality of life.
