  • "Gluttony” of media content
  • A constant desire to check email, messengers, and social networks, as if something important or useful is happening during the absence. Lost profit syndrome = anxiety. The anxiety triggers the consumption mechanism
  • Bipolar disorder on the background of social networks (for as long as necessary) - an unhealthy attitude to apps
  • The feeling of external control from social networks
  • Understanding about the Struggle for Attention (for Hours of Human Life)
  • Sticking in the networks - the brain does not rest. The psyche cannot be in a static state - degradation or development
  • When a person is not able to choose independently, the choice will be made for him

  • Completely disable all notifications on the phone itself in all applications (leave a maximum of one working messenger)

⤑ In emails, set up filters and create folders. Do not be lazy to click the "Unsubscribe from the mailing list" button in the email. The ideal days for mass unsubscribes are the days before the birthday and the days before the New Year when most services will send template letters with congratulations.

⤑ On Pinterest, create boards and divide all the pins into boards.
