 How to Monitor Your Scrolling

  • If you are going to scroll, own it- so you can enjoy it! 
  • Set a timer and give yourself a certain amount of time.
  • It’s OK to scroll, as long as you’re not constantly avoiding what is really going on.
  • If you’re scrolling when you’re tired, the light from the phone stimulates your brain to keep you awake. Try a 5 minute meditation instead to prepare you for sleep.
