So much of what we do revolves around our phones. What we post on Instagram, knowing what the temperature is outside, and getting directions somewhere are just a few things we rely on our phones for! If you find yourself constantly wanting to check or be on your phone, follow some of these tips to break your cell phone habit!
- It’s sad to say most of us won’t go to sleep without checking our phones. Put your phone in another room! If you rely on it for your alarm, then put it out of reach so you’ll still wake up but not be tempted into checking it.
- Pick two hours a day to go without your phone. I know I easily get distracted by checking social medias or watching YouTube videos on my phone. Turn it off for an hour or two and work on homework, clean your room, or go for a run!
- Set in on “do not disturb.” A lot of times I can’t get off my phone because I’m constantly getting notifications from social media, group chats, etc. Putting your phone on “do not disturb” means you still get the notifications without them popping up on your screen every two seconds!
- Don’t check your phone first thing in the morning. After a while, it becomes habit to check your emails, social medias, etc. as soon as your alarm goes off. Studies show that automatically waking up to sit on your phone for a half hour is a bad start to your day and can cause added stress or anxiety!
