How I overcame Facebook addiction

  1. I notice I’m doing it as I’m doing it
  2. I notice I have an urge to do it before I do it
  3. I no longer have the urge
  1. Turn off all your notifications
  2. Use the Pomodoro technique
  3. Leave your phone outside the bedroom at night
  4. Have set times you check your emails — I check mine once per day, after lunch
  5. Notice the urge to look at your phone when you’re in a queue or waiting for someone, and choose to pay attention to your surroundings or how you’re feeling instead
