One of the best ways to overcome anxiety or addictive behavior is to confront it—i.e., put some space between you and your device and deal with the withdrawal, Greenfield says. His advice: Avoid the constant temptation to check your device by making a list of 100 things to do that do not involve your phone, computer, or technology—a go-to guide you can mentally reference when you feel the urge to reach for your device. And be social. Make more time to catch up with friends face-to-face instead of via text, e-mail, or Facebook.
