31-Day Phone Challenge - Day 21


When you reach for your phone, ask yourself, “What do I want?” Do you want your phone for a specific purpose or are you bored? It is easy to get into the habit of reaching for our phones in the pauses of our day.

One of my friends made the decision to check the news only once a day. When she found herself checking the news, she’d ask, “Do I want to spend my one time now or would another time be better?” Often she found that she didn’t really want to read the news, she was just avoiding something else—maybe something as simple as cleaning up the kitchen.

Today’s Challenge:

Do some phone housecleaning. After you have deleted the apps you don’t want to use, tidy your remaining apps. Only keep a few necessary apps on your home screen, such as gps and your actual phone. Organize the other apps in folders on the second or third page so they are accessible but not too handy.

If you are really serious about hiding temptation, change your screen to grayscale which makes it appear like a black-and-white photo and cuts the visual appeal. Imagine browsing Instagram without any color. It sucks out the joy. If it isn’t fun to pick up your phone, you will stop using it. (I admit, I only lasted in grayscale for a few hours.)
