I charge my phone away from where I rest at night. I also turned off many notifications that aren’t important while working hours
Putting a timer on my social media apps helps me, as well as checking your screentime from time to time, to get more aware of how much time to you are spending on social media. Also, deleting the facebook app helped me. & trying to contemplate on the expectations you have towards yourself when it comes to posting, try to lower them. & also change your notificationsettings! Then you become more in control. & maybe try to check it at certain times like three times d ay.
I try to schedule it its own reserved time. That way, rather than an afterthought or a tool for procrastination, I am deliberately giving myself permission to browse my feed for a designated block of time. And when that window is up, I put the social media down. Personally it works best if I give myself a handful of 15 minute blocks throughout my whole day as rewards for completing tasks.
Take long breaks from using it and remember people only share aspects of their lives they want you to see, there is often much behind the scenes
Scheduling time for it, dedicating time to plan for social in advance is the best way to set limits around it. Rather tham checking it compulsively you have 1 hour for all your instagram stuff in 1 day! I have noticed that if I check social first thing in the am my.day starts off quite scattered and unfocused. So I schedule social media for later in the day.Also, pick 1 platform to commit to engaging on amd schedule content on all the rest. Don't spend an hour on each social post.
Stuff social media! Keep devices for keeping contact, but ffs, enjoy the people, sights, sounds, aromas around you 😁😁
- How often do you fail at disconnecting in the evenings?
- Do you turn off flight mode when you sleep?
- Do you ever use your phone as a security blanket?
- How exactly can you resist the urge to to constantly check your phone?
- Is there anything else to do but read? I don’t have a music player besides my phone
- How do you stop looking at your phone first thing?
- What do you do in the time between disconnecting & unplugging and falling asleep? To get ready for bed?
- My husband and I watch TV after our son goes to bed. This is our wind down time together, but often means we are looking at a screen until quite late at night. How do I fit watching what I want to watch with my husband into the day without having screen time before bed?
- How do you success at avoiding your phone? How do you manage to break the addiction?
- How do you replace your screen time at bedtime? As a mom, sometimes after their bedtime is the only time I get to myself. It’s hard to use that time to wind down and go to sleep when it’s the only “me” time I have.
