Spending a lot of time on your smartphone is usually seen as a bad habit, but there’s nothing wrong with it if you’re putting it to some good use. Here’s a couple of activities you could do instead of mindlessly scrolling through your Instagram feed.

Learning New Things

Instead of wasting all of your screen time on social media, how about using it to learn something new? You can download apps such as Duolingo and learn a new language or have fun while playing one of the brain-training games.

Reading Books

Most of us used to read more before smartphones came into the picture, but you can actually use them to go back to your favorite hobby. Reading books on your phone comes with many benefits, and it won’t take you long to get used to it.

Virtual Meet-Ups

One of the best things about smartphones is that they help you stay in touch with your friends and family. You shouldn’t limit yourself to texting. Group video chats and virtual dinner parties are also an option.
