Being connected all the time isn’t good for the mind and body. Studies show too much time spent on your phone, computer or tablet increases stress and disturbs sleep.

This research found that technology use, for some people, is like addiction. That means it may be hard to ditch altogether, so let’s take it slow.

Start with 5 extra minutes of phone-free time today. Find something else to occupy your time and enjoy a break from the pull of social media. This is perfect for after work or right before bedtime, when your body and mind need a break the most. Try spending a few minutes outdoors, chatting with a friend, loving on a pet, or anything you enjoy doing.
