CUT­TING DOWN

Girlfriend - - FEATURES -

So­cial me­dia is awe­some, but if it’s tak­ing over your life, here are ways to cut back.

1 Try us­ing the In­sta time limit fea­ture. You can now track how long you’re us­ing the plat­form for and log out once you’ve hit the daily limit you set your­self.

2 Leave your phone on the charger when you get home and only look at it after din­ner.

3 Turn off push no­ti­fi­ca­tions so your phone isn’t con­stantly buzzing when you post a fire snap. Then check it in your own time.

4 Delete or un­fol­low any­one who makes you feel jeal­ous, an­noyed or an­gry. Stop com­par­ing your­self to oth­ers and make it a more pos­i­tive ex­pe­ri­ence – and more fun!
