360gospelvibes 5 Ways to Avoid Addiction to Your Smartphone

Do notifications on your phone alert you faster than God’s voice? I
know what it’s like to battle addiction to smartphones because I’m
engaged in it as well. I’m not going to lie: I can sometimes struggle
with too much phone usage.
But we must also be aware of the real addiction towards smartphones that exists today

A new term has just been coined: Nomophobia. It refers to a fear of
not having a phone. Yes, it’s a real thing today. According to Gallup,
52 percent of Americans have admitted to checking their phones several
times per hour, with the highest frequency happening in the younger
generations.
There’s nothing wrong with smartphones. They are great tools that can
make us more productive if we learn how to use them well. Just as the
Bible teaches us the dangers of the love of money (1 Timothy 6:10) and
how it can be a bad master, we can also be distracted by the love of
smartphones when the latter become our master as well.

Here are five ways to avoid smartphone addiction and make sure that
the device is actually used to serve us instead of us serving it

1. Turn It Off
When was the last time that you turned off your phone? The most
useful feature to a phone, I have found, is the airplane mode. No, you
don’t have to be on a plane to use it. Putting your phone in airplane
mode or turning it off all together before you go to sleep, start
working, eat a meal or go into a meeting helps you focus and truly
disconnect.

2. Remove Apps That Eat Up Your Time
Games may seem harmless until we realise how much of our time and
resources they eat up. There’s nothing evil with a few minutes of game
time if you want to kill time while waiting in line, at the airport or
for a doctor’s appointment. But when we crush candies, clash with clans
and so on at work, in dates and at church, we know it’s getting in the
way.

3. Dedicate Your Smartphone to God’s Purposes
It’s powerful what prayer can do. One of the many powerful prayers
you can make is to pray for your smartphone use, dedicating it to God
and His ways so that the Holy Spirit can guide us as we use our phones.

4. Set Boundaries
Rules are extremely helpful when wanting to set boundaries for phone
use. This is something you might want to discuss with your spouse,
children, parents or friends. Setting up extra rules for extra
protection will never go wrong as long as you make the resolve to stick
to them.

5. Don’t Touch Your Phone Until You’re Out of Bed
Chances are the first thing you reach out after getting out of bed is
your phone. I admit to doing this sometimes. Phones plus beds are a
recipe for minutes, even hours, of dead and unproductive time. One
helpful way that I devised is to put my phone far away from bed when I
sleep.
