Like many people, one of my resolutions or at least aims (less pressure, people) for 2018 is to stop using my phone so much.
Over the last few months I’ve realised just how severe my dependence on it is – we’re talking borderline addiction.
I’ll reach for it every few minutes and check a variety of apps, mindlessly scrolling, not really taking anything in. And deleting the offending apps didn’t help. When I ditched Instagram and Facebook in a bid to reduce my scrolling time, I just ended up procrastinating on other sites, like the LinkedIn news feed to get my fix. Yes, LINKEDIN.
So this year, I've decided it's time to do something about it.
