How will you explain yourself in coming years. May be like this :
“Hey “X” here and I a smart phone addict ”
So following are the steps that you must follow to get rid of this maniac :
- Avoid Reading emails or seeing your pending messages the first thing in the morning . Like you all most probably will sleep by messaging “Good Night ” to everyone and after waking up the first thing you will do is to pinging everyone with your “Good Morning “.
- Configure you phone in this way that lesser push notification and low volume notification sound .It will make you to take a step back from a state of constant reading to the latest notification flying your way .
- Set a specific time to access social media or text
For Example: Make a habit to use the phone for a specific time like 9:00pm -10:00pm and no phone after 10.
not just vibrate switch it off!!
- Give time to everyone you love (Friends/ Family)
Encourage everyone to silence their phone during family time . When your with your friends turn off your phone nothing will happen in this small time but small breaks like this will help you get out of this :D.
- Monitor your own phone activity .
By this was you can have a track on the usage and work on your de-addiction.
- Avoid using phone while driving ,do it before or after your drive because by doing this, not only your saving yourself as well as ensure safety of others :P.
- Create NO PHONE ZONES:
If your too addicted avoid taking phone with you while your out . Deposit phone by the door to limit the usage .
- Professional Councilors are there to help you overcome temptation . 😀
So, next time when your distracted with the tone of your phone have a check on time you spend on your phone .
“Its time to own your smart phone rather than letting it own you ”
In its modern time:
“Smart Phones are getting smart day by day but human are becoming fools ”
