Reducing phone usage for 90 days

8 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Starting today I will post my screen time for the next 90 days. It must be less than 2 hours (exceptions are possible, depending on what it’s used for). I will also take notes on the effects this will have. 

Last weeks average: 5:23 h

Day1: 1:29h

  • used the phone more than that, but for a skype session and the muse headband
  • Two hours already seem too low, as there‘s stuff I have to do on a daily basis and useful things I want to read, but I‘ll try to fit it into those two hours and be more strategic about my use
  • When I looked something up it was done with urgency

Man I need to do that too. I am super interested in the effects this will have.

Day2: 1:55h

  • Used my time partially for stupid stuff, but doesn‘t matter as long as I‘m in the range😊
  • It helped to turn off all internet connections
  • Had to plan out how to use the phone and leave some room for the evening
  • now I gotta go to bed reading some old book...

Day3: 2:00h

  • couldn‘t fall asleep last night (without the phone)
  • after midnight I knew I could use it again😄
  • So that‘s what I did for 1:30h
  • because I only had 30 min left for the day I went to the library to read
  • Would have never done that if I had the phone to distract myself
  • just used the phone for urgent organization today, no entertainment

Day5: 2h

  • Too lazy to read, so just a lot of sitting around going on
  • Using the opportunity to watch the breath instead of getting lost in thoughts
  • Feel more connected to reality
