2 out of 3 people display signs of phone addiction, that’s pretty shocking but not very surprising. How much time do you spend on your phone each day? The average American spends about 5 and a half hours on their phone every day. Over time, that’s a huge chunk of your life. Unfortunately, most of the time we spend on our phones isn’t productive. Hello social media!
Spotty Time is a new app, available to download on Google Play, that’s determined to help us manage our screen time responsibly and live life away from the screen. It’s super helpful for personal productivity – whether you work from home or in the office, checking your phone several times an hour can really hurt your productivity. Or perhaps your family is notorious for using their phones during ‘family time’, where they’d rather be scrolling through social media or engaging in group chats with their friends.
Breaking free from the screen for even a few hours a day can have a lot of benefits. Limiting screen time has been associated with improved moods, healthier relationships, better physical health and more time to try new things. There’s a lot to enjoy, even just at home with our families, once we put the phone down.
Managing your screen time is super easy thanks to Spotty Time. Set blocks of time, whether it’s for 15 minutes or 3 hours, where you’re not going to use your phone. The app limits your phone usage and blocks apps during that time, and it’s irreversible (no, not even restarting your phone will break it!). Not only is it great for personal use, it’s also super effective with children’s phones as they can’t get around the limits set by Spotty Time. Monitoring and managing children’s screen time is arguably more important than our own.
So whether you or your family could benefit from a little less screen time (let’s face it, we could all probably benefit), download Spotty Time on Google Play and give it a try.
