Smart phones are great tools, but when we lose swathes of time to scrolling, we're no longer the masters of our tools, but slaves.
You don't need to totally give up your phone in order to get back in the driver's seat of how you use your time. Many apps are intentionally structured to keep you scrolling their app, long after you meant to.
Scrolling can easily become an addictive behavior, and we need some dedicated time out of the loop to break the habit and reclaim our time.
Sure, social media takes a lot of heat, but all kinds of apps make you want to scroll on an infinite loop.
Real life never looks like the composite of everyone's curated and filtered photos.
