Tips for Reducing Screen Time
Set a timer
Use a timer on your phone, in that when it goes off you turn off the device. Make an effort to move your body you can go for a walk, clean a room or try an at home workout. Keep your body busy with something else rather than your phone, computer or television.
Turn off notifications.
This are messages from apps that appear on your screen to alert you of new activity. This triggers you to look at your phone and, more likely than not, spend additional time on your phone beyond checking what the notification is.
Leave the phone out of sight.
Especially when going to sleep people tend to have their phones with them. This interferes with your sleep and can significantly add to your daily screen time. Use an alarm clock to wake up each morning and leave your phone on a small table slightly away from your bed.
Experts say adults should limit the screen outside of work to less than two hours per day. Any time beyond that which you would typically spend on screens should instead be spent participating in physical activity.
