2. Unsubscribe from Email Newsletters

Take a tour of your inbox and check how many newsletters you subscribed to a long time ago which you no more read. Chances are that they would be plenty of them. Because whenever you visit a website for the first time, it invites you to register for their newsletter.

Only keep the newsletters that you regularly read and unsubscribe the rest. You can unsubscribe them by scrolling to the end of the email and clicking the ‘Unsubscribe’.

3. Simply Your Social Media

You don’t need to have an account on every social media platform. Try to use only one social media platform. Also, delete the unused social media accounts.

Control the urge to post everything on social media. The less frequently you post on social media, the less time you will spend on it (responding to comments and likes).

Similarly, you don’t need to keep social media apps on your phone because these apps are the most distracting apps on your phone. Get rid of them in the first place. It is better to use social media on your PC.

5. Go Off the Grid

From time to time, unplug disconnect your online life and spend some time with your family, friends, or alone in nature. Explore new hobbies and interests that are not related to the internet e.g. Reading paper books, going to the gym.

For example, ‘Screenless Saturday’ is very popular these days where people refrain from using the internet and any screen on Saturday. Some people set a day every month where they don’t use the internet on that particular day. Some netizens refrain from using social media on weekends. Similarly, you can decide to go offline for at least one day per month.

1. Minimize Your Online Accounts

First of all, reduce the number of emails you own to just two. One for personal use and one for your job/business.

These days every website requires an email address for creating an account. Most of the time we never use that account a second time. But those websites that we created our account on keep sending us spam.

So, go to your inbox and check the accounts you have created over the years. Delete the ones you no longer use.

4. Turn off Notifications

Every app you download comes with a lot of notifications. Most of these notifications are useless. Customize the notification setting for each app and website and only keep the keep ones.

Social media apps like Facebook and Twitter send a lot of notifications e.g who liked your photo or who liked your tweet etc. Whenever these kinds of notifications are received we rush to the app for instant gratification and drain our productivity.

Instead, it is better to respond to all likes and comments at once.

Don’t Rely On Your Memory

If you want to remember things, don't rely on your memory. Put it in writing or in a digital notebook.

The Internet can make you feel fractured

The internet can open us up to so many things that we would have never seen otherwise. There's funny animal videos, plant parent groups, and information on movements. But there's also hate speech, harassment, misinformation etc.

The internet can also divide our attention and make us feel fragmented.
