Make better use of your time by putting your phone down.
On average, we spend just under 3 hours each day on our phones. It can feel like we’re always at work because of the constant phone access. It can be even harder to have a frank face-to-face conversation with our loved ones when we’re so distracted by apps on our phone. If you’re worried about spending too much time on your phone, here are some things you could do instead.
- Pick up a book
Books encourage relaxation and also hone in on your ability to concentrate. Reading books also entertains us and inspires our imagination. Whether you prefer fantasy, romance, thriller or biography, pick up a book at your local library today.
- Learn a new skill
Once you put down your phone, you’ll realize how many hours and days you were wasting away looking at it. You may find that you have enough time to pick up a new hobby like playing an instrument, playing a board game or practicing meditation. Find a hobby that you love to do and work on getting better at it each and every day.
- Have a conversation
When we have our eyes down on our phones, it’s a signal to whoever we’re with that we’re not properly listening. Having little face-to-face social interaction can double our risk of depression. Try putting your phone down more often and striking up a conversation with the person next to you.
