Tips for mindful screen use

  1. Set screen time boundaries: Establish specific time limits for screen use each day. Use apps or device settings to track and manage your usage effectively. You can also limit time spent on particular apps if you feel that you sometimes get drawn in for too long.   
  2. Introduce digital-free zones: Designate certain areas or times in your home where screens are not allowed to improve your focus and productivity, as well as stimulate your creativity. 

Review your screen time. How do you feel about the total amount of time spent on your device or certain apps? Reflect thoughtfully and honestly. What solutions can you think of to potentially lessen your screen time or maintain moderate usage?
