Screen Free Week, Managing Your Time On Social Media 

Have you ever scrolled through TikTok for so long you see a “take a break” ad? We’ve all been there. Feeling overwhelmed? Sometimes, social media becomes a distraction, keeping us further from our to-do lists. This week is Screen-Free Week, so let’s explore ways to curb your social media usage without going cold turkey!

Set Boundaries

Become a productivity pro by creating time blocks. Focus for 25 minutes, then reward yourself with 5 minutes of screen time. Repeat 4 times, then take a longer 20-minute break. This “Pomodoro Technique” works wonders!

Silence the Noise

Feeling bombarded by notifications? Try Do Not Disturb mode. It might seem simple, but for many, it eliminates distractions and keeps you focused.

Ditch the Phone, Not Social Media

Need a more radical approach? Temporarily remove the temptation. Put your phone away in a drawer or another room while you tackle important tasks.

Swap Scrolling for Serene Sounds

Social media can be a temporary stress reliever, but it easily becomes a time sink. Crave background noise while you work? Trade in shows and movies for calming fireplace videos online. These offer a peaceful, distraction-free ambiance.

Find Your Focus Zone 

Thrive in a social environment? Hit the library or a bustling cafe! Surround yourself with the energy of fellow students. 

Seek Extra Support

If you struggle to implement these tips, reach out to your academic advisor or university support services. They can offer personalised guidance and help you develop a plan that works for you.
