End Your Smartphone Addiction:
First, we admit there’s a problem, let us make life that’s complemented, not ruled, by your smartphone.
1. Turn off your cell phone at least an hour before bed
Give your brain a chance to unwind and commit to turning off your phone an hour before bedtime. (Use a land line for emergency calls)
2. Get a real alarm clock instead of Smartphone – I challenge you not to turn your phone on again until your morning routine is finished: you’ve showered, dressed, eaten breakfast, maybe even read the paper (remember that pastime!)
3. Set certain times to check your phone – help your productivity by designating certain times to glance at your smartphone. (ones/hour for 5 min break)
4. Establish phone – free zones: Mealtimes are a good place to start, and bedroom
5. Engage in real human contact We’re social creatures who thrive on real human interaction. That’s something a smartphone just can’t replicate.
