3. Become more conscious and aware of the time you spend online. Social media platforms like Instagram lets you see the average amount of time you have spent on the platform. Some apps like AntiSocial will help you keep a check on your social media usage.
4. Make a deal with your friends and family to have your phones on silent and put away from sight during your quality time. Foster real relationships through meaningful conversation without the distraction of a notification bell.
5. Keep occupied with things that matter—a project, a skill-learning course, or a hobby. When you work on things you love, you will find that time flies by and you have not checked your phone once!
6. Spring-clean your socials. Unfollow or unfriend any account that evokes any negative feelings or those that don’t bring any value to your life. Instead, lean into content that inspires and motivates you. This way you are taking control of the content you consume.
7. As much as you receive content, you also input your thoughts and ideas into this “digiverse”. Commit to engage positively.
8. Remember, what you see on social media is neither 100% real nor can it replace real-life authentic relationships. Technology should make our lives better and not the other way round.
9. Find someone to pray with you and keep you accountable on your social media habits.
