10 Ways You Can Reduce Your Phone Addiction

1. Save your time

Being available online to your friends and colleagues also has its own big disadvantages, out of which the biggest disadvantage is that you are not able to take time for yourself and your loved ones. You have to respect your time because it is precious and you have to learn to save your time. I myself keep the "Do Not Disturb" service active for a few hours in my phone and all my near and dear ones know that I am unavailable in those hours. During this, only a few people can contact me, out of which my family members and my boss are prominent. You can also put your phone completely switched off or on flight mode for a few hours. Sometimes calls and messages don't allow you to spend quality time with your family.

2. Check your phone usage

Whether you are an Android user or an iPhone user, you will find some or the other application or option on both types of phones that will tell you how long you have used your phone. Here you can also check which app you spent the most time on and then you can reduce the time spent on that app by improving your digital habits. You can set app timer in your phone, with the help of which you will use less apps on your phone. You will find all these settings in your phone's Screen Time settings.

3. Run your phone in grayscale

According to the study, our brain is very attracted towards colors, due to which we see the notifications of our phone quickly because it is colorful.
