Last week I decided to try a new way to cut down phone use, that that was to make it slightly less convenient to pick up my phone during idle moments. The main way I have done this is by keeping my phone in a drawer in my desk at work. Out of sight, out of mind, right?
Here's the update: it worked! I am definitely picking up my phone less often. I don't just mindlessly pick it up, because it's not even there, and opening a drawer is just enough extra effort that I can stop myself from doing it in those moments.
Hooray! Success! Now let's see how long I keep this up before rationalizing that my phone use "isn't that bad" and "who cares anyways?"
