◊MINDFULNESS: Reducing Screen Time◊
It’s easy to become overwhelmed when you’re constantly plugged in to the outside world. With emails, texts, Facebook messages, Instagram posts and the rest of the internet right in your pocket, there’s always something new (and probably unproductive) to check out. Smart phones, and the distractions that come with them, are here to stay. But it’s important to remember that you control how much digital media you let in to your life. Put in a little effort and a lot of willpower, and you can reduce your dependency on your phone!
Here are a few techniques that can help:
- Out of Sight, Out of Mind
Working on a deadline or need to focus on a project? Silence your phone (or shut it off), and keep it out of sight until you decide to take a break. If you’re worried about missing something important, set a recurring alarm and briefly check your phone for notifications every 30-45 minutes.
- Adjust or Mute Specific Notifications
Go to your phone’s Settings and shut off notifications for any non-essential apps: games, podcasts, shopping apps, etc. You don’t need to interrupt your day with push notifications that you forget about right after you read them.
- Delete Apps and Unsubscribe from Emails
Next, take it a step further and “de-app” your phone and your inbox like you might de-clutter your room. It’s easy to get in the habit of checking certain sites and receiving emails or newsletters without really questioning why. If something has become a chore you don’t even enjoy, liberate yourself and delete the app or unsubscribe!
- Set Some Rules and Log Off for Real
Unless you must be available for a specific emergency or important event, it’s okay to step away from your phone and focus on the here and now. It also helps to start with a few specific rules, such as eliminating screens:
• Two hours before bedtime.
• When spending time with friends and family.
• For specific blocks of time during the weekend.
