The second thing you can do is to delete social media apps on your phone. You see, it's crazy how many times we check our phones a day. You know, according to some studies, it says 150 times per day. And the majority of those times is to simply check Facebook, Twitter, email, etc. So if we delete these apps, then we're less likely to mindlessly check our phone. Now the third thing you can do to help with social media usage is to have a disconnect time. So what I mean by this is have time during the day when you completely disconnect and I recommend to disconnect times during Ramadan, which is from the moment you wake up for suhoor to sunrise and from the moment you come back from
work until after thorough prayers along with that also one hour before you go to bed you should disconnect as well just so it doesn't interrupt your sleep. So these are some tips to help you cut down on social media this Ramadan. What are some other ways you're planning to cut down on social media this Ramadan?
