good vid but there's just too much unnecessary scenes. I know you're a filmmaker but I think it's too much. I think straight up talk and no ads/promote your courses. I'd love it.

Instagram is probably the most annoying app out there, because i just cant get rid of it. Funny videos, shared content with friends, even sliding into people's DM's LOL. I try to use the app to my advantage where i dont look at the terrible stuff, like blocking people. But instagram has this weird feature where when you type in the first letter of someone they instantly pop up. And you cant change it unless you block them. Blocking however keeps them in the back of my mind. This dillema with blocking or not and deleting ig or not is alot of trouble for me, because i want to stay connected with my friends.

Im watching this video late but here you go. I find not leaving my phone to charge before sleeping helps reduce my usage so if i wake up i keep it for charging and it reduces atleast 1-2 hours screen time. Its also good for your phones battery because according to my research, charging your phone max upto 80 is good. I dont know how to explain properly but it works!

I deleted social media from my phone and only use browser from them, the experience isn't as good as on the app so that adds friction. Another app I recommend is Digital Detox which blocks the app use on your phone for however long time you want except if you want to escape you have to pay 1 dollar. Which is effective I tell you... I turned off notifications for social media at first and realised I had no use for Snapchat. I didn't even give an f to what ppl Did in their day to day lives every second. Deleted my account. It took me some coaxing to remove my Tumblr but after deleting my account, I created a new account and well, realising the futility, deleted account #2 off. Never had twitter or facebook. Now I only use Instagram because of the videos and pictures I saved and I keep checking which don't matter to me anymore and unsaving them off.
What helps is complete digital dopamine detox. Funny how much time you'll have left once you are done for with it. Now I write stories and fanfiction (sue me) and am working towards learning how to play the flute. I also realised that I like the subject I'm learning in college and want to learn more about it. I plan on using active recall and spaced repition to relearn whatever I've learnt so far (Thank you, Ali) ❤️❤️❤️
Oh and I also stopped taking my phone to the bathroom. I grow imaginative and finish my bath quickly too, as an added bonus. thank you for the video, Matt. May God bless you 🙏🏻
