If you have the habit of checking the phone first thing in the morning before even coming out of bed- this called an addiction. If you are text messaging when you are meeting your friend instead of communicating with each other – your phone is literally controlling your personal life.
You all know that I have a phone addiction if you don’t know check my blog 20 facts about me. Last 1 year has been very difficult for me. That’s when a friend of time suggested me to try these tricks. After 1 year I can say that it really worked for me.
Following steps helped me to recover from this addiction.
4 Ways to Recover from this Addiction
- Morning wake up call: Do you check your phone immediately after you wake up, this a serious issue. Start your day with some exercise, a glass of water, preparing a healthy breakfast and cup of coffee/tea. Spend your morning in writing your do list (how your day should go), start your day with the positive attitude to take on the day ahead.
- Don’t sleep with your phone: Keeping your phone beside you is not good, it can damage your brain. Instead of giving an excuse, buy an alarm clock and put your phone somewhere else instead of your bed.
- Say No to Phone Timezone: Having a phone is not a problem, if it’s affecting your work then it is problem. If you are constantly distracted by your phone going off- you won’t remain focused which will affect your productivity then there is a problem. Create a no phone time zone target. Means at least 2 hours of the day switch off your phone and stay completely dedicated to your work.
- Get Real: When you are out with your friends, family, partner for a cup of coffee or a meal having a real conversation with them is necessary. When you meet your friends after long is this the way you are going to communicate with them? Start a real conversation with real people. Share your life experience- it’s time to get real. My personal opinion is just switching off your phone when you are with your loved ones because you will be missing conversation, memories you spend with them.
