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

Resist the urge to look at your phone first thing in the morning.

Thursday

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

Friday

Go out to dinner, and leave your phone at home.

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:
