Take Control Of Your Smartphone 3600

Take Control Of Your Smartphone

It's day 9 of the Screen Time Detox challenge! 

Some of our biggest screen distractions stem from your phone. Still having a hard time putting it down? Try the following:
    • Set parameters around how often you use it. If you find yourself mindlessly scrolling Twitter before bed every night, put your phone in another room and read a book or connect with your partner instead.
    • Turn off notifications you don’t need. Go into your phone’s settings and disable pop-ups or sounds that are unnecessary and distracting. Do you really need an alert every time you get an email? Or need to know about every piece of breaking news? Those messages take you out of the here and now.
    • Declutter your phone – remove apps that you don’t use.

What has been the most challenging aspect of this challenge for you? Let us know in the updates section here, our private Facebook group, or on Twitter, or Instagram.
