Need a (Digital) Break?
Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been tracking the amount of time I spend on my phone, using the beautifully designed app Moment. It’s been insightful to see how much time I spend on my phone day-to-day and which apps I’m using the most. It may sound silly, but knowing that my phone usage is being tracked helps prevent me from endlessly scrolling through a feed to the point where I don’t know where the last 20 minutes went.
If you’re looking to take a break from your iPhone, there is also a little-known feature that only takes a few steps to set up: The ability to hold all notifications until you manually enable them again. Find step-by-step instructions on how to set this up here.
