Deploy Time Limits On Addictive Mobile Apps And Strike A Blow Against Procrastination

As shared in the documentary Social Dilemma: “There are only two industries that call their customers users: illegal drugs and software.” The takeaway: we need to set guardrails to ensure we use technology as a tool, rather than being a tool of technology. Consider deleting social media on your phone entirely (and reserve for desktop use only). Or set a 10-20 minute daily time limit for social media on your mobile device. For iOS: Settings>Screen Time>App Limits; For Android: Settings>Digital Wellbeing & Parental Controls. Tracking your social media use (via app limits) is a great first step toward breaking the addiction.
