  1. You might not even know it but you’re probably addicted to your smartphone especially since people have been stuck home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Studies show that we use our smartphones on an average of 80-150 times a day and there are repercussions if you don’t keep it in check. While there is a lot of good that comes out of using smartphones such as better communication, better work-life balance and entertainment, there comes a point that you simply cannot go without looking at your phone. In order to curb smartphone usage and get your life back in order, here are some ways you can reduce your addiction to smartphones: 1. Check Your Usage © Apple Both iPhone and Android smartphone now offer some form of smartphone usage tracking which tells you exactly how long you’ve been using your smartphone for. It also shows which apps you’ve been using the most and even lets you schedule down-time. During this time only apps that you whitelist will be available to use while others are greyed out for that duration. It is a great way to prevent yourself from using addictive apps like Instagram, Facebook and games. You can usually find this setting in the “screen time” settings of your smartphone. 2. Protect Your Time © Apple Being always available to your friends and co-workers does come with its own caveats as you never really get time for yourself or get other work done. You need to respect and protect your own time so reduce your smartphone usage over a period of time. I tend to keep ‘Do Not Disturb’ switched on in my phone at certain hours and ensure everyone knows that I am not available. Only favourites from my contacts can get through me which includes family members and my boss. You can also completely switch off your smartphone every day at a specific time as well. Sometimes calls and text messages can make it hard for you to carry on with your work or spend time with your loved ones. If you face this problem daily, a little bit of digital detox will not hurt. 3. Do Other Things You Enjoy © Unsplash If you love to read, play board games, watch movies, or go out on a stroll with your dog, you need to start doing more of that rather than spending time on your phone. No matter which activity you choose, the presence of a smartphone will always ruin the experience. Next time when you are watching your favourite TV show or playing a game, put your phone on ‘Do Not Disturb’; set it aside and don’t bother looking at your notifications. This is a great way to reduce the time spent on your smartphone while doing something else as you won’t be checking your smartphone each time you get a notification. 4. Turn Your Phone Into Grayscale © Youtube/ITJungles Research has shown that humans attach emotions to colours and whenever a notification pops up, sometimes you can’t help but see what it's about. If you turn your phone into a black and white canvas, it will reduce the urge to check notifications and apps. Some phones even offer a scheduling feature where you can turn your phone into grayscale automatically. This is best used when you’re about to go to bed or are trying to fall asleep. 5. Turn Off Notifications From Unnecessary Apps © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Unless you need to communicate with friends, family or co-workers in real-time, you should turn off notifications from unnecessary applications. Every app wants to get your attention and it often does that by sending you notifications repeatedly. There are games that send notifications to get you to spend money while social media apps send you updates about people which you can always check out later. You may even delete social media apps from your phone altogether and only check updates from your laptop/desktop. The constant updates from your distant friends and family can be very distracting and eventually get you scrolling for even more content. View the full article
  2. Most of these habits seemed insanely hard to follow when I started. But they have yielded results that I could not have imagined or planned for, when I started. That's the beauty of habits. They lead you to destinations you could not have decided for yourself. They create opportunities that would seem impossible early on. They make you comfortably equipped with uncertainty. When I dropped out of my PhD and came back to India, at the age of 24, I had 2 choices to make: Choice 1: Plan A didn't work. So Plan B. And then Plan C, D,E or Choice 2: Was there a way to live life without a plan, a goal, a target? In a moment of what most people, including myself, would call madness, I decided it was Choice 2. I will not set any more goals or targets. I will set habits. Frankly, at that low point of life, I had nothing to lose. And all to gain. And gain, I did! Don't set goals. Set habits! Here are 10 such habits that will help you achieve higher goals than you could have set for yourself. Habit 1: Read every day © Unsplash I read 30-45 mins everyday. Early in the morning. Only non-fiction. No specific topic. Anything that intrigues me. How it has helped me is to connect the dots from multiple fields, personalities, experiences. I remember how Stoic Philosophy helped me design the investment approach for Nearbuy and how Charlie Chaplin's biography helped me make better video content. Habit 2: Meditate every dayI meditate for 30 mins every day. It is hard to describe how immensely helpful meditation has been. I am more aware, out of habit now. The minute I am distracted, I realize I am. I do not feel the need to control my emotions anymore. I am simply aware of them. Habit 3: Work out 6 days a week © Unsplash I play tennis for 3 days a week and lift weights 3 days a week. This was a journey I started rather late in life, at the age of 32. Haven't looked back since then. Working out has taught me not just self discipline and self respect, it has also contributed the most to my growth as a leader. Studying about the body made me realize how organizations should also be developed the same way. Habit 4: Sleep for 7-8 hours a dayI sleep at 9: 30 pm every day (except Friday) for 7 hours and then try to sleep for another hour during the afternoon. Sleeping well is perhaps the single biggest determinant of physical and mental energy. It is ridiculous how easy it is to gain that energy and how many of us still waste this natural cure to so many problems! Habit 5: Read ALL emailsI get ~3,000 emails a week marked to me. And I read all of them. I reply to less than 5% though. I treat my emails as my opportunity creator. I have hired my best folks, because of cold emails sent to me. I have collaborated with the smartest, most capable people I know, and all of it started with a random email. Great opportunities do not come with the subject line "Great Opportunity"! Habit 6: Meet someone new every weekFor the past 5 years, I have met someone new every week. Earlier it used to be in office. Now happens through Zoom. I decide spontaneously. An interesting email. An intriguing tweet. An article that caught my fancy. I just seek their time. People have amazing stories, amazing experiences, amazing things to share. It is like reading a book a week, in less than 30 minutes. Most of these conversations, I walk away with something that I need to think upon, work upon, improve upon. Habit 7: Watch TV less than 2 hours a week © Unsplash We cut our cable connection 6 years back. And even on OTTs, my time per week is less than 2 hours. I do not commit to any series. Only movies. (My last 2 series were Chernobyl and Scam - both worth it!). Less TV means less numbing of my senses, less chances of being seduced to not sleep on time, less time consuming. And that means more time feeling alive, more chances of sticking to my schedule and more time thinking. Habit 8: Think in questionsBack in college we used to play a fun game. We will all speak ONLY in questions. No sentences. I still play that game in my head every day. Asking questions allows me to dig deeper. It helps me pause, helps me reflect. Habit 9: Resist the obviousWhenever in a complex situation, I ask myself, "If I were to take an opinion poll on what should I do, what would be the majority response?" And then I will encourage myself to not make that choice. Instead, think of the non-obvious path. This is a magical habit. It compounds magnificently to the point where it becomes second nature. And when it does, it sets you up for outcomes that most of the world will not witness for themselves. Habit 10: Share what you knowI have been writing a blog since 2005. I have been posting videos once every week since 2016. I have been posting videos every day since 2018. I have been sharing what I have learnt, as a process (which doesn't feel like a process to me). Sharing has made me connect with people that I would have never met otherwise. Sharing it with absolute transparency has also made me extremely comfortable with who I am.
