How to break your addiction to your phone

By Martin Talks of travel and consultancy business Digital Detoxing

  • Try ‘phone stacking’ in a meeting or at a family meal. Everyone puts their device in the middle of the table and the first to reach for theirs has to do a forfeit, such as to make tea for everyone, buy the next round or wash up.
  • Keep tech out of the bedroom: light from screens stops production of the hormone melatonin, which is vital for getting to sleep, so leave them to charge in a different room when you go to bed.
  • Keep your phone out of sight and reach when you’re driving. Even hands-free phone systems slow reaction times as people don’t concentrate on the road.
  • Don’t eat at your desk. Go outside at lunchtime instead. Not only does it get you away from your screen, it stops you from sitting down too long – also very bad for you.
  • Go on a digital detox holiday. Take a break from social media, work emails and texts. And if you lack the self-control, try a specifically designed break, such as the ones we run at digitaldetoxing.com.
