Our Favorite Tips on Digital Detoxing

Digital clutter is no different from physical clutter when it comes to your mental health, and it might be time to consider a (digital) spring clean. To alleviate any stress related to your phone or tablet, learn to use them in a helpful manner to prevent it from becoming a harmful one. Here's a list of advice from us to avoid overworking your devices, and how to embrace a digital detox.

  • Reduce the number of apps you have on your phone. Are there any you don't use, or can consolidate the similar functions of three apps into one?
  • Photos, videos and voice notes are hard to get rid of, but treat them like your closet and ask yourself if it sparks joy.
  • Go through your desktop icons, files, and apps one by one and determine which you want to keep. As you declutter, consider both accessibility and relevance; are there any duplicates or outdated versions of files?
  • Go through your open tabs, only keeping the ones that are relevant to things you are working on. Close any others, and add them to a to-do list to revisit later. Ditching unused apps and clearing your browsing history benefits your battery life!
  • Social media: unfollow accounts that don't bring feel-good energy to your feed. You can also customize notifications and time limits within the apps, so it becomes less distracting and within your control.

In the future, designate a day and time to declutter and organize your devices. Whether it's once a week, or once a month, it will help you reduce any building stress. Digital detoxes are a mindset shift, so remember your devices are tools and make them work for you.

Happy cleaning!
