3 steps to make your phone 90% less addictive in under 15min 👇🧵
Charge your phone in a separate room.

NOT your bedroom or bathroom! I use my office.

It’s an instant habit shifter.

By keeping your phone away from your bed, you’ll sleep better and wake up faster.
@nireyal Go grayscale!

You will use your phone less if it doesn’t have colors

Kills TikTok, IG, and YouTube - Twitter is still pretty usable

For iOS: Settings > general > accessibility > accessibility shortcut > color filters
For Android: Swipe down > pen icon > add Grayscale to tiles
@nireyal Turn notifications off

1. Charge your phone away from your bed
2. Turn off notifications
3. Use Grayscale
