Want to have more time and be more productive? According to research, we spend about 3 hours on the phone, which prevents us from doing everything in time, doing important things, getting more rest and achieving success in life. Your enemy is your personal phone if you don't know how to use it correctly.
It's hard to imagine your life without your beloved smartphone. New technologies have made our life much easier and better, but they have created new problems. We start the day by looking at the phone and end it with that. We constantly read the news, sit on social networks, take pictures, play, correspond with someone and do other nonsense. Every extra minute we bury ourselves on the phone.
Gradually, phones began to take away not only free time, but everything else, to the detriment of the quality of life. Have you noticed that you spend a lot of time with your phone in your hand? Do you have very little time, do not have time for anything, do not sleep much, hardly rest and cannot achieve your goal in life? It's time to change something.
How to deal with phone habit and addiction? It's time to make the enemy, who takes your time, energy, sleep and success, your ally.
How to beat your phone addiction?
1. Be more conscientious with your phone
Often we do not realize that we have taken the phone again and are aimlessly sitting with it. Learn to "wake up" and not touch the phone all the time. Control yourself and get rid of the habit of constantly grabbing your mobile. Phone addiction is a bad habit of reflexes.
2. Set silent mode on your phone
Are frequent messages, mail and calls constantly distracting? Set silent mode on your phone. This will allow you not to twitch over trifles every time and be more collected. Now nothing will distract from work, which will allow you to do everything faster. Silent mode will benefit your productivity by increasing it by 20-50%.
3. Put your phone away
When the phone is near, the hand itself reaches out to take the mobile and look. Momentary weakness turns into wasted time, which is measured from minutes to hours. Put your phone away so that it is out of sight and in front of your nose.
4. What do you do with your phone?
Take a close look at what you are spending your time on. A couple of days is enough for the experience. Write down everything you did on your phone. What did you do and was it so necessary? As a result, you will be able to see an ordinary picture of what is happening. Toys, social networks, aimless surfing the Internet, viewing messages and mail 100 times.
5. Limit the time spent on the phone
If you can't control your time on your own, then you can resort to using special applications for your phone. For more productivity, the Focus Lock app locks your phone. During the lesson or work, third-party applications are prohibited, which allows you to focus and not be distracted.
6. Set standards for your phone
Check your mail twice a day at a specific time. Sit on social networks, play and have fun with your phone only during strictly regulated hours. Create periods of time where you are not using your phone. This can be a time for socializing with family or for relaxation.
7. Change your phone habits
Checking emails, browsing social networks, playing games and just sitting aimlessly on your phone? It's time to get rid of this useless habit. Make the enemy your ally. Start reading books or learning a foreign language. Now the phone will be less entertainment as a place for self-education. This will allow you to limit time and spend it more useful.
Phone addiction is your enemy. Limit your bad habit in order to have more time, energy and energy for more important things.
