Do you check your smartphone a lot? Sometimes pick it up when there’s not even a notification “just to see?” You’re not alone, lots of people are finding that they are checking their phones an awful lot these days. If you want to break the habit, check out Space, the app gives you a bit of pause.
Instead of asking you to just stop checking the apps, Space delays them from opening breaking up the instant gratification feedback loop. It uses the same sort of math that the apps use to get you hooked to their usage but works in the opposite manner.
All this app does is ask you to take a few moments to breathe deeply before opening the apps up and engaging with them. That’s all. Overtime, you’ll feel less anxious about checking them until hopefully you don’t feel like you HAVE to check them at all. Space is free for Android, iOS and Chrome.
