  1. Be mindful of how you spend your time. Keep track of how you spend your morning, afternoon, and evening.
  2. Stop spending too much time on social media. Try installing the News Feed Eradicator browser extension. Delete your social media apps in your phone so you don’t access them intentionally or unintentionally whenever you have free time.
  3. Schedule your ‘deep work’. Multitasking does more harm than good. A 2-hour focused time is better than 6–8 hours doing the same thing with divided attention.
  4. Schedule your distraction time. Dedicate time to watch your favorite shows or vloggers. Strictly follow the schedule.
  5. Do more non-digital activities. Try meditating, doing calligraphy, or reading physical books you have at home. Aside from trying new things, these activities help rest your mind and eyes.
