We're the first people to joke about being addicted to smartphones, but being too obsessed is unproductive and unhealthy. When you can't go 20 minutes without checking your phone or you sleep with it under your pillow, it's time for an intervention.
If you think detox retreats are too much but the Moment app is too little, consider this weeklong plan the perfect balance. It's practical and doable but totally effective. Try it today or as one of your New Year's resolutions and let us know how it goes, will you?
Unfollow people who aren't your real friends, unsubscribe from unwanted email lists, and delete apps you don't use.
Turn off push notifications.

Set up a charging station outside of your bedroom, and don't look at your phone an hour before bed.

Spend the day not looking at or posting to social media.
Turn off your smartphone for the entire day.
