Why Reduce Screen Time?
If you are trying to spend less of your personal time on your phone, you can do so by making small, simple changes that are achievable over time. Keep in mind you want to incorporate one change at a time over several weeks or months in order to be successful.
First, you will want to start by keeping track of your time. This will allow you to make changes to the current amount of time you are on your phone outside of work. Make your goals realistic and achievable when setting your screen time usage. You can always adjust the screen time used as you become more acclimated to using your phone less.
Second, set a no-phone time period. This may be during mealtime when exercising or an hour before going to sleep for the night. Find the time that works best for you and your family so that this becomes a part of your daily routine, making this more achievable.
Third, make a no phone zone. This can be the living room, bedroom, or even in the car. This can provide the opportunity to have meaningful conversations that may otherwise be ignored when our phone is distracting us.
Lastly, don’t become complacent with boredom, as this will have you spending more time using your phone. Instead, find an activity you enjoy. It can be as simple as going for a walk outside, reading a book or magazine.
Start with the first step listed above to set and track your screen time usage, assisting you in making positive changes in your daily life.
