Sometimes it’s good to switch off. Having a break from your phone or tablet is a good way to reset. It’s a chance to reconnect with the ‘real’ world and can help you get past the fear of missing out. Will the world end if you don’t check your phone? Probably not! This is a chance to improve your mood and help you live in the moment. Give yourself a phone free hour every day. You’ll appreciate the break from comparing yourself to others and the stress of  how many likes your getting. It’ll help improve your sleep too!
