Every time I check screentime on my Iphone the number always surprises me. Last week I spent 3.5 hours a day on my phone. Did I really just spend 25 hours last week looking at my phone? That’s absurb.
Seeing that my screen time higher than I’d like, I set one of my goals this week to limit my screen time.
Here’s what I did:
- Uninstalled all social media and dating apps.
- Blocked and set limits on mobile browser.
- Grayscaled my phone.
- Enabled downtime from 11pm-8am.
So far I managed to get my screen time below 2 hours which is around a 45% decrease from last week. However, my initial goal of getting below 1 hour a day is difficult.
I have to remind myself what the purpose of smartphone is and why I use one. It’s a powerful device meant to benefit me, not control me.
