- A recent German study showed the positive effects of either giving up your smartphone or (and this is fascinating) reducing its use by one hour a day – in fact, that was better than abstinence for months at a time.
- The one-hour less a day group was still using their phones less — 45 minutes a day — four months later.
- Plus, improved life satisfaction, more exercise and less depression, anxiety and nicotine use – all from one hour a day less on your smartphone.
- A reminder that we really do control our phones, they don’t own us.
