How to Stay Off Your Phone

Master a Digital Detox With This Easy Plan

If you think detox retreats are too much but the Moment app is too little, consider this weeklong plan the perfect balance. It's practical and doable but totally effective. Try it today and let us know how it goes, will you?

Monday
Unfollow people who aren't your real friends, unsubscribe from unwanted email lists, and delete apps you don't use.

Saturday
Spend the day not looking at or posting to social media.
