Phones are addictive. The number of times I've left mine on the table and then cursed myself for forgetting to bring it with me to the bathroom are a testament to that. (If you can't spend 2 minutes on the toilette without your phone, you know you're in trouble.)
So, for our first challenge, we're going to use a screen time tracking app like Moment to see how much we're using our phones, and set individual goals to reduce it (note - phone calls don't count, just time spent staring at the screen).
Put Your Phone Down & Pay Attention
My Personal Goal: I started tracking my usage back in August - I've averaged 2 hours and 43 minutes per day staring at my phone since then, but I've had a few 4 hours days that I'm not proud of. I'm aiming to spend no more than 2 hours a day looking at my phone in January.
My Game-plan: Make all my meals phone-free, leave my phone in a different room when I'm at social gatherings, and no aimless scrolling on Facebook before bed-time.
