I recently discovered it’s pretty easy to trick myself into reading more books and wasting less time looking at my Twitter feed. A lot of my phone usage is just a habit and habits can be changed.
So here’s the magic 3-step program:
- Move social media apps into a folder or off the home screen of your phone. Or even better, remove them completely (which I have done to Facebook and Instagram a while ago)
- Replace with stuff you actually want to be doing. For me that means iBooks for various ebooks and Pocket for saved articles.
