Mobile Phone: Create Better Habits

January 10, 2022

2022 is here, and it is time to create better mobile phone habits. The New Year brings resolutions that many of us will break come March. But one thing I think we should all agree on is leaving phone habits behind. Phone habits can be hard to break, but that’s why the New Year is a perfect start to creating a better relationship with that device in your hand, and we’ve got the tips to help you do it:

Using your phone as a distraction

Honestly, this one is probably a stiff habit to break! It’s so easy to pick up that phone and go on social media and find yourself lost in endless (sometimes meaningless) content. While it can be a fun time, it can distract you from other work you might need to get done. That’s why there are apps that help you to focus, so instead of looking through Instagram, you can finish that one project you’ve been putting off for hours. Apps like Forest: Stay FocusedFocus Keeper: Time Management, and Noisli can help you get your work done by blocking distracting apps, creating to-do lists to keep you organized, and much more. So you can get back to scrolling through social channels, video calling your BFF, and catching up on your threads faster without the extra stress.

Not updating your voicemail.

The second habit you want to change would be updating your voicemail. This one is an afterthought when planning to go on a trip or taking the week off. Still, it is an important habit, especially for small business owners who need to keep clients up-to-date. Luckily, with CrowdVoice, it’s an easy — and free — process, which you can find out more about here.

Mobile phone: Charging too close

Lastly, keep some distance when charging your phone. This one is a helpful habit to build. It will allow you to fall asleep quicker and will allow you to wake up without too much stimulation. When this happens, it can cause stress for your mind to go from 0 – 100. So instead of charging a phone by your bed, set it in the kitchen or the living room. You can use an alarm clock instead and upgrade to one with a sunlight wake-up mode. For example, the HomeLabs sunrise alarm clock is a much more natural way to wake up, instead of that bright blue screen on your face. Other alarm clocks help you fall asleep, such as LED mirror digital alarm clocks, white noise alarm clocks, and Lenovo smart clock essentials, with their white noise settings. There is an abundance of different alarm clocks that you can choose from, and start building a healthy relationship with your phone!

Mobile phone conclusion

These are just a few simple habits you can leave behind in 2021, but they’re habits that can drastically change how you use your phone. What other habits are you looking to leave behind in 2021? Comment below to let us know.
