Smartphones have been our worst distractions. We have to admit it. Some people create the term “FoMO” or known as fear of missing out. People nowadays have this problem that makes them check their phones even if there is nothing to be checked.  Even if there is no important news or even any notifications they still keep on clicking the button to see whether there’s any news or update that they are missing out while there’s none. This has become worse because it occurs not just to the people at the age of 18 and above it also happens to the generation of our parents and our small siblings that is only 9 years old. Can you see how worst it is already?

There are ways on how to overcome this! One of them is downloading apps on time off. The apps will help you by making sure your other apps that you put in the settings under “locked” for a certain time cannot be open until the time has finished running as you set earlier. With this you can avoid yourself from playing with your phone while doing your work. In other words, leave your phone behind or create a phone use limit.
