Technology (read: the endless social media scroll) can seep into every spare moment like water, flooding our schedule with distraction. This makes us less intentional over time because we have fewer moments to reflect and plan the course of our immediate future. A helpful tactic for combatting this: don’t automatically pick up your phone when you finish or are ready to switch to another task. This will give your mind the chance to slow down before shifting to the next thing, and you’ll also subject yourself to fewer anxiety-inducing updates.
