Listen to Useful Audiobooks and Podcasts

Audiobooks and podcasts are a great way to stay entertained while you are on the go. There is a lot of information available online that can help you improve your wellness journey, and it’s also possible to listen to books or podcasts about self-improvement topics like health, mindset, fitness, and relationships.

You can listen to audiobooks and podcasts on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. And you don’t have to worry about getting a new membership with Audible because the service is available for free in iTunes Store and through Google Play Music. 

Get Rid of Unnecessary Apps

Do an app audit: take a day to go through your phone. Use the time it takes for each task, from opening and scanning apps to looking at notifications or trying out new features (or old favorites), as a way of getting rid of what you don’t need. You might find that some things are worth keeping after all.

The apps you install on your phone reflect what’s important to you. For example, if you have kids, you will most likely have tracking apps that will help you monitor your kids’ activities. You can read this blog content from Family Orbit to learn more about them. If you have an app that isn’t used in an intended way or is no longer relevant for your life, then consider removing it!

Use Distraction Blocking Features

Have you ever been working on a project, and then suddenly an email comes in, or your phone buzzes with some text message? It’s so easy to switch gears from what you were doing. If something interrupts your train of thought, that counts as being distracted. The more often this happens, the worse off you are because not only do interruptions negatively impact your moods, but they also decrease productivity.

So how can you avoid these distractions? One technique for managing overload is to use software tools such as Freedom which help limit distracting notifications and apps during specific periods, like when you’re trying to get work done.

Make Money Through Surveys

Many people enjoy filling out surveys and getting paid for their opinions. It is one way you can make money with your phone. Online sites will pay you to complete surveys, but many of them take a long time, or they require an excessive amount of information before providing the survey. If done correctly, this becomes another form of passive income from your phone.

Prioritize Useful Phone Usage

Beyond the distractions and temptations, using your phone too much can adversely affect your mental health. When you’re spending more time staring at a screen than interacting with people in person, it can start to affect your mood and how you feel about yourself. Studies show that increased use of technology has links to anxiety or depression symptoms. 

Conclusion

In conclusion, it is essential to stay productive, make money and enjoy life. Your phone can be an excellent tool for accomplishing these goals while also mindful of how you use it.
