11 science-backed strategies to reduce your screen time
This is a great read, thank you!! I often feel like I am constantly on my phone because of a need (whether real or perceived) to be accessible for work. Reading this reminds me that that’s very much an excuse to justify my screen time, and that I can always delete apps or use other tools to work around that. Thanks!
The thing is that phones can be very useful, to take pictures of your kid or read your favorite magazine. However, these will make you go back to your phone for the less usefull things.
So, I would also suggest to buy a small camera, and a paper subscription to your magazine. You should enjoy the presence of these different objects. If not, return to the phone ! ; )
I need to save this to revisit frequently! So useful!
Your husband is a wise man! I just bought a ksafe – precommitment backed by force helps me follow through :)

Another great idea from a reader: setting the screen time app as a widget on your home screen, so that it’s right there whenever you unlock your phone. Genius!
Excellent article. Thanks for sharing and including all the lists of useful resources! I will try to incorporate these principles in my phone usage.
