Cell phones have morphed into our everyday, every minute, every house lifestyle. Research proves that it is just not healthy to be that attached to your phone. There are many ways to simmer down our usage without going cold turkey. You can check your screen time which may shock you into reality when you are faced with the real numbers. You can also set your phone to gray scale, lower notifications, avoid vibrations as it does not do what you think it does. You can go old school and buy a real alarm clock and just take baby steps to go through your day with your phone completely away from you.
- Excessive smartphone usage can alter your fundamental brain chemistry and eat up lots of time.
- You can use Apple’s Screentime app to see how much you use your phone — the average person clocks about three hours a day.
- Try to reduce the number of notifications you have on your phone.
“Needless to say, there are many reasons to consider cutting back on your usage. But this task may feel daunting.”
