Why You Can't Stop Checking Your Phone

(DailyProsper.com) – If you feel tempted to check your phone every 5 minutes for no apparent reason, you’re not alone. Phones can be addictive, and it’s all too easy to fall into their traps.

Social media apps and mobile games are specifically designed to keep pulling you back in with constant rewards, notifications and news feeds. If left unchecked, it could start interfering with other important parts of your day.

“Better Ideas” on YouTube discusses a possible solution that can help you reap the benefits of the digital world without becoming addicted to it. Check out the video below to learn all about “Digital Minimalism” by Cal Newport.

Digital minimalism is a philosophy that encourages people to make the most of digital media by using and optimizing the apps that offer the greatest value.

Now, you might be thinking that sounds like a lot of work. But it also makes sense.

If you delete all the apps on your phone that don’t add any genuine value to your social life, career or learning, you’re that much less likely to waste hours scrolling or tapping needlessly.

Meanwhile, you can also optimize the apps you do need to maximize benefits while reducing distractions.

The secret is in the intention. Social media and online apps can be incredible tools if you use them with goals in mind. This way, you can have a healthy relationship with your phone and find more constructive forms of daily entertainment!
