Part II: How To Avoid Your Phone And Focus On Your Self

In my previous article, I described three ways to avoid being on your phone with Schizophrenia.  This article will expand on this topic and describe three more ways to avoid your cell phone and focus on your mental health.

Put Your Cell Phone In Another Room

If you are really busy and are trying to focus on improving yourself, put your cell phone in another room.  This is especially important if you work from home.  Put your cell phone in your bedroom and do your work in another room in your house.  Or even better yet, leave your cell phone at home and go to the library.  As a result, you will be more focused and have more time to focus on your work and yourself.

Put Your Cell Phone In Your Brief Case Or Pocketbook

In addition to putting your cell phone in another room, put your cell phone in your brief case or pocketbook.  This way when you go places your cell phone will not be in your hand and distract you from completing your daily errands, whether it is work, the grocery store, and friendly outing with a friend or romantic partner, or a family dinner.

Turn Your Cell Phone On Silent

On a third and final note, in addition to putting your cell phone in another room and putting your cell phone in your brief case or pocketbook, you can also turn your cell phone on silent.  When your phone is on silent, you will not be distracted by the sound of your ringtone.  Focus on your life, your job, and your family.  You can look at your messages and phone calls at the end of the day.  Be productive during the day, not distracted.

Conclusion

To end this article, three tips have been mentioned, in addition to the tips in the first article.  They include putting your cell phone in another room when you are completing a task, putting your cell phone in your brief case or pocketbook, in addition to turning your cell phone on silent.  When you are not distracted by your cell phone and looking at your cell phone 24/7, your mind will be a lot clearer, and you will be more focused on what you have to do.  You will also feel better about yourself as well.  Detach yourself from your cell phone for once and for all and embrace life at its fullest.
