The importance of setting boundaries
Our phones, especially social media apps, may drain our time and energy. Scrolling often starts when you're responding to a message, reading an article, or looking at a few pictures. Then, four hours later, you feel nauseated by the wasted time.
To avoid this, get specific about the reasons you're online. Go through the apps you use most and think about the core reason you want to check each app, the reason why you overdo it, and alternative to help you stick more closely to your core reasons. You may decide to limit your social media to 20 minutes a day, talk one-on-one with friends, or unfollow or muting half the people you follow.

If you find yourself picking up your phone out of habit or boredom, find alternative ways to spend your time.
If you don't have a hobby, now is a good time to find one. Recommendations would be reading books, making art or gifts for friends.
If you find yourself posting a lot, ask what specifically you're seeking and if there are other ways that would leave you feeling better.
It's worthwhile to consider what you are posting to the world. Posting stories, tweeting, and messaging lead to back-and-forth response...
While you want to be informed on the state of the world, catching up via social media is exhausting and time-consuming.
Consider limiting your news to once or twice a day in a more concentrated way, like listening to a briefing podcast or signing up for an EOD newsletter, or going directly...
Apps are not necessarily the best way to communicate personal or semi-private info, nor is it adequate to learn about your friends.
A weekly family FaceTime or a weekly email might be better to stay in touch and is less draining.
Even if you love a good text conversation, it might mean that you are more online than you otherwise might be.
One solution is to treat your phone like a phone. If you feel uncomfortable phoning, consider informing your friends that you will start calling more often, so they don't assume t...
We often open apps more out of muscle memory and not a desire to see what is happening.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
