Itunes is a great way to store your favorite songs, movies and television shows. It’s also an easy way to share them with friends and family. But what happens when you find yourself spending too much time on it? We’ll show you how to break these bad habits so that you can reclaim your free time for other important things in life!
– If you find that you’re spending too much time on the app, set a timer for your phone’s usage. Itunes has an “auto lock” feature to make this easy.
I recommend setting it at 30 minutes or less because I found myself using the app longer than planned when I didn’t have any preset limits in place
– Take screenshots of all those photos and videos that are just sitting there not being used; don’t forget about them! More often than not we fall into old habits with our media consumption so making these changes is crucial if you want to take back control over how long you spend looking at your screen each day.
– Keep track of how many times per day (week / month) that you visit the app and set a goal for reducing that number.
– Download an app like Forest or Self Control to prevent yourself from using Itunes at certain times of day, if you need help with self-control
– Delete apps off your phone when you’re not actively using them to free up storage space on your device (especially important as new iPhone models release more memory)
– Be mindful about what time of day it is: we usually spend so much time looking at our screens in the evening because there’s nothing else going on. Mindfully choose other activities during this window instead!
– Track how many hours per week you use the app by taking note throughout your days; then make adjustments accordingly. This will also help you know when it’s time to break the habit entirely.
– Take a peek at your usage history and see what apps are taking up more than their fair share of time–I might be guilty of this with my email, for instance!
– Combine all those hours spent on different apps into one hour chunks (i.e., if I spend two hours per day on social media, that could really add up to 60 total minutes). Then decide how much uninterrupted screen-free time each week is reasonable for you to shoot for.
