Technology is everywhere, but the more we depend on it, and the more we use it when we don’t really need it. Hence, it makes it difficult for quite a number of people to create a meaningful relationship. As such, there is every reason for you to reduce your dependence on technology. This article will discuss how to reduce your dependence on technology.
Choose outdoor activities over technology
When you’re at home, make it a rule that you can’t be online if the sun is shining. Instead, you have to go for a walk, ride a bike or get some other kind of healthy physical activity for at least an hour before you can pull out your phone or tablet, or take a seat at the computer. This rule should apply to everyone in your household.
Rearrange your room furniture
Design your room so that the television is no longer the focal point of the room, but an afterthought that requires twisting around or rearranging chairs to view it.
Reduce social media usage
Social networks have transformed the way you use the internet for all ages. As such, a whole lot of people spend hours tweeting, posting on Facebook and browsing through pictures on Instagram. The best solutions for you is to impose limits on the amount of time you spend on social media. Avoid aimless browsing and give your time online a purpose.
Set aside reading time
Challenge yourself to read at least 30 pages of a great book before you check your computer or mobile device. Pick the right reading material and you’ll soon find you’ve created a new pastime!
Create projects for yourself
It’s amazing how much you can accomplish when you’re not glued to a screen. Compile a list of one-hour evening projects. List everything you can possibly think of: organizing kitchen cupboards, touching up the paint on your bedroom walls, sharpening knives, sorting through your sewing materials. Then try to do one each evening.
Stop sleeping with technology
Many sleep with their phone which is not good for your health and if you serious about saving yourself from tech addiction; you should never sleep with your technology.
