Nobody would have believed that about 20 years ago, a technological product would overturn a market, everyone in the world would look at that product screen for hours, and even worry about leaving it at home and going out. But this is the point that comes today. With the emergence of smartphones, we are now able to do everything with them. Smartphones cover such a large area of our lives and everywhere we face, it affects many cultures today and changes our habits. Experts say that an average American controls his phone 80 times a day. Even in some countries, remediation programs are organized even through a concept called "smart phone habits."
You may not think that your smartphone habit is at an advanced level so you may need digital detox yet. But is from time to time you think you use your smartphone unconsciously? Do you think your phone controls you, shaping your life? If you want to use your smartphone more consciously, here are a few suggestions:
1. Take advantage of the applications
Using the app to reduce your smartphone usage can be a bit strange, but there are workings that work very well. With these applications, you can rearrange the interface of your phone, not allow distracting applications to direct you, or edit notifications.
2. Apply to old methods
The smartest thing about smartphones is not just a phone. So you can listen to music on your smartphone, provide your time management, open your garage door, keep track of your meetings, make your communication with your loved ones easier, and make you wake up in the morning. But doing all of this with a single tool also brings with it an unconscious use. For example, we take the elimination phone to look at the clock, another application is distracting at the time, and after 5 minutes we find ourselves shifting down in the social media. it is possible to become a more intelligent smartphone user by applying the old method and doing things we can do with smartphones with other tools

"Do I have to look at it all the time?" "Do I have time to respond to these messages or notifications?"

5. Return to the stee
How excited would you be if a friend you love liked to invite you to watch a black and white movie? You will probably think it's a boring evening. You can use this information to limit your mobile phone usage. You can restrict your mobile phone usage by making the screen of your mobile phone black and white instead of color. Do not forget that colors are a very important element that motivates senses and emotions.
