So how can you overcome this Smartphone addiction? Here are a few effective tips!
Use the app to track your usage
Both Android and iOS versions have an app to track your usage on Smartphones. Start using that. Once you come to know how many hours you are idling away on your mobile it will definitely motivate you to stay away from your cell phone.
Divert your mind
Not work but social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook are the reasons why you are more on your mobile. These platforms offer pleasure, entertainment, and relaxation. Try diverting your mind from them by doing other activities like dancing, exercising, and meditation.
Try using physical versions
We now use mobiles for multiple purposes like as an alarm clock or for checking time. Instead, try using their physical versions like the original alarm clock or wristwatch so that your use of the Smartphone is controlled.
Turn off notifications
Make sure that you receive notifications on your social media platforms only from your very close people. Turn off all the other notifications. It will reduce your screen and scrolling time.
Socialize more, take the help of friends
Go back to the old mode of meeting people personally, and spending more time with friends than hanging out with them on chats. Meeting each other physically will make life more interesting and help to beat your Smartphone addiction.
