Cell-phone addiction has become common today. Whether it is about teenagers or adults or infants, everyone’s addicted to phone these days. And the reasons are obvious, phones have multiple applications and features that fulfill our innumerable needs and wants. However, phone addiction can prove to be fatal in terms of physical, psychological and mental health. Therefore, we should work on limiting its use.
And, here’s how you can do it:
1. Schedule use
You must note and write down how much time you’ll be using your phone in a day. For example, two hours. Also, you have to set a limit on frequency of picking up your phone. It can be low initially and increase gradually.
2. Turn off notifications
Switch off the notification of useless apps. By useless i mean, apps that aren’t really important to you. For these, you can check out your phone afterwards and don’t really need to jump on to see who texted or liked pics.
3. Keep yourself busy
