Screen Time: Go to the settings on your phone, check your screen time, and note down the number and date to assess the issue- this is the first step to overcome this smartphone addiction

Digital MInimalism: Try deleting the apps that you haven't used in a while. This is good for you as well as your phone

Home Screen: Cleanliness is Godliness! Apply this to your phone as well, and declutter you home screen. Make sure to optimise and sort your apps by categories

Notifications: This is on of the most important step in this journey. Turn off all social media and news app notifications! This will help you to reach out to your phone less and focus on your work

Application Blockers: Are you someone who scrolls through social media endlessly? Check your screen time once again, make a note of the apps you use the most. Then enter app limits and set a timer for 30 minutes to break your focus while aimlessly scrolling through apps

Black and White: Apps are designed in away to make you addicted to it. Change to black and white mode, as vibrant colours capture attention and keep you hooked

Limitations: Set some hard and fast boundaries for screentime. Do not use phone for one hour before bed and after waking up, and also while having food and during family time

Unplug: Last but not the least, unplug! Take a detox from social media to spend time with friends and family
