Try out these suggestions to spend less time on social media.

For many people, simply checking the time on their phones can quickly turn into hours wasted on various social media apps.  If you are sick of spending so much time on social media, then here are some of the suggestions that you should try to limit your use.

  • Schedule Limits

Most smartphones now have apps or features that allow you to track the amount of time that you spend on various apps.  For instance, iPhones running iOS12 or later can access a feature called Screen Time.  Screen Time tracks how many hours you spend on certain apps and allows you to schedule “Downtime.”  Downtime places time limits on apps and alerts you when you have reached said limit.  Using this feature can prevent you from wasting hours at a time on social media apps.

  • Put Your Phone Away at Night

Many people use their phones as their alarm clocks.  This offers the perfect excuse to keep your phone within easy reach of your bed.  Unfortunately, this also makes it easy to spend hours at bedtime just mindlessly scrolling through your feed.  To eliminate this temptation, invest in a real alarm clock and store your phone out-of-sight when it’s time for bed.

  • Delete Social Media Apps

One of the best ways to curb your social media use is by deleting social media apps from your phone.  While you can still access various platforms through your web browser, they will be less easily accessible.  Because most users are not motivated to put in the extra effort, this automatically reduces their social media use.

These are some of the tips that you should try to limit your social media use.  Want another way to use your time more effectively?  Then turn to the experts at The Schwab Agency in Colleyville, Texas, for all your insurance needs.  Our dedicated team is ready to offer you the easy, efficient insurance experience that you deserve.
