Happy New Year!
The early days of 2022 mean something of a ‘digital detox’ for many of us.
One tactic I’ve found to reduce screen time is to take all the social media apps off my phone and only use them on a laptop or desktop. It means you can continue using the channels if you rely on them for work or your social life but you won’t be tempted to take a quick look while you’re going about your day.
If you’ve made a new year resolution to reduce social media or give it up entirely, let me know any good strategies you’ve found email me.
