Apple Mobile addiction & Other smartphones dependency. Here are some statistics that demonstrate how bad the problem is:
- An average cell phone user. They touch their Apple mobile 2,617 times per day.
- People spend an average of three and a half hours a day on their phones.
- Most phone calls are answered within three minutes of the previous one.
This statistic is incredible:
- Conversations become meaningless.
- Attempts to solve problems are discouraged.
- You’re sleeping less.
- Thus, young children are more negative, distressed, and do not recover from their emotional trauma.
- There is an increase in obesity.
- They are addicted to their smartphones. It has a positive effect on depression.
Based on the statistics and what we know about Apple mobile usage. It would seem clear that we should put our phones down and walk away.
However. Technology addiction is real for me.
Being a parent of two and earning his living online today.
I am familiar with how addictive mobile devices can be.
It’s a constant struggle for me. Harnessing them can be. Without succumbing to the way, they were designed.
Many of you are reading this article on your Apple mobile.
The irony is not lost on me.
Thanks to smartphones.
Right now you are reading this article.
We all know how that goes.
They can also have a negative impact on us.
It is up to us how we respond.
Is there anything we can do to keep our cell phones?
Related to what we value?
Do we need to reduce the amount of time we spend on our phones?
What tools or ideas can we use?
Here are five suggestions.
Disconnect from your phone for one day a week
It is by far the most common method. I observe among those who have attempted to curb their cell phone habit.
Nearly ten years ago. I heard Tammy Strobel was the first person to mention it.
Usually on Sundays or Saturdays. It should be set aside for your Apple mobile.
You should do this every week.
Try a 30-day experiment to reset your usage
This has been the most effective method. For me to break my cell phone habit. As long as I do not intentionally limit how much I use my phone.
Using it takes up an increasing amount of my free time.
It doesn’t even occur to me that it happens. I don’t even notice it happens.
I put away my smartphone for Lent seven years ago. My only text messages and phone calls were allowed (no maps or photos).
That was the extent of my usage.
I reset my usage for a period of 40 days. I have used my 30-day reset twice since then.
It has been successful both times.
Do not charge your phone before going to bed
Ask your children not to use their phones too much. Don’t let them charge them in their bedrooms.
Are you going to stay off the phone? Don’t let it charge in your bedroom. This will prevent many of the negative effects of excessive use of the phone.
Keep your cell phone away from your bedroom. This means you’re not sleeping poorly. Communication difficulties. You’re less intimate.
This has been helpful to me personally.
There are many items on my list.
Do not use your cellphone at home.
As a Wall Street Journal employee. Christopher Mims is using Mobile Phones.
He wants to maintain a healthy balance between his cell phone and his life.
At the end of the day, he places it in a kitchen cabinet.
In his words, “the more frequently you physically remove your phone, the easier it will become to ignore it while it is still on you.”
When used as a tool. Mobile phones can enhance my work, health, parenting, and life. They can also have negative effects as listed above.
They become distractions from more important things. Cell phones are used mindlessly and unintentionally
Everyone can benefit from learning how to use smartphones properly.
