How to Stay Off Your Phone

Master a Digital Detox With This Easy Plan


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 and let us know how it goes, will you?

Monday
Unfollow people who aren't your real friends, unsubscribe from unwanted email lists, and delete apps you don't use.

Tuesday
Turn off push notifications.

Wednesday

Saturday
Spend the day not looking at or posting to social media.

Sunday
Turn off your smartphone for the entire day.

We made this handy graphic so you have the detox steps in one place. Take the challenge and pass it on:
