I deleted fb/Reddit/insta from my personal phone to discourage death scrolling. Even though I can easily reinstall, it actually works. I end up opening kindle instead

It’s a volume 10 loop of Napalm Death - You Suffer. I hear it.

Set up auto deposit into a general investment account. Gotta keep that checking/saving “low”.

I use my old, wiped clean 2nd phone for only my social media. So Instagram and Reddit. And I honestly forget to pick it up for up to a month at a time, and by then I’ll have to charge it if I really want it. I’ll go on guilt free and catch up for 2 hours, and then I repeat not using it for 3-5 weeks lol. It’s outta sight, outta mind. Took a few weeks to not muscle memory try to open the app, but now I don’t even think about it till my sister tells me to check something she’s sent me.

Oh I also auto deposit over 20% of my take home pay into savings or investment accounts. So I just live on a smaller budget than I have too, it’s great not even seeing the extra money in my account.
