4 Ways To Kill Your Social Media Addiction by blogbuilder: 3:34pm On Sep 25, 2018
Social media is one of the greatest source of distraction in this 21st century.
According to research, every social media user spends an average of 2hrs on social media daily.
Among all, Facebook and Instagram have the highest usage.
Only 10% of users uses the app for business purposes while others uses it for some things.

Before writing this post, I analyze myself and discover that I'm spending an average of 6hrs daily on social media. If I'm to calculate this by a year, it is approximately 2190hours which is 19days in a year.

I'm not against the usage of social media if you're using it to make money but it doesn't speak well if you're spending five unproductive hours on social media daily.

Now to the point, how to kill your addiction

Delete your social media app
This may sound weird to some people especially girls that cannot live their lives outside social media. You will not die if you do that
They may be asking themselves, why should I delete my social media app? But wait let me tell you, those unproductive time you're wasting to recieve likes and comments on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter can be Channelled to a productive one. You can use it to sell your goods and the rest.
Deleting the app for 2-3weeks will make you to loose interest in them.

Hide your social media
If you feel you can't delete your social media, you can hide them during the working hour.
This is the trick I used in killing my addiction to social media.
After my morning devotion, I'll check my whatsapp messages and immediately I'll hide all my social media app.
I Will only decrypt them when I'm done working for the day.
You can use apps like X-hide and lot more.
If you don't have any app to do this, follow the steps below...
Step1 Goto Google play service

Step 2 Type "App hider" in the search box

Step 3 A lot of suggestions will pop up, choose the one with the highest rating say 5 star

Step 4 Install and use accordingly

Delete your social media account
There's a saying that "Nothing good comes easily"
Addiction is something that may damage your productive time thereby reflecting in your future.
If you want to battle with this, it doesn't cost you anything if you delete your account.
If you are not doing something useful with it, use this remedy to kill your addiction.
The main social media account that can help your ministry is LinkedIn.

Hide your phone during working hour
Another way of doing this is by keeping your phone away from you during the day.
If you can take your mind far from something for a long period, you'll soon loose interest in it.
