Come up with a plan. Not all screen time is bad, so Assess which parts are toxic and apply time limits to reduce them Set modest goals such as a 20-minute limit for reading news on weekends. For structure, create calendar events for everything, including browsing the web and taking breaks.
Create a no-phone zone. Leaving your phone outside your bedroom stays in a bay blue light that can make your brain think during the day, and urges you to check it in the middle of the night. Another no-phone zone can be a dinner table, a prime opportunity for families to remove and re-add devices for at least 30 minutes.
Resist the hook. Beware of artificial targets and infinite feeds that technology companies use to keep us glued to their screens. Turn off notifications for all the apps that are needed for work and get in touch with the people you care about. If you feel strongly addicted, take an extreme measure and turn on the phone Grayscale mode.
