How to Stop Facebook from Taking Over Your Life

… In 5 Easy Steps

They are listed by the order in which I followed them, but the order is not important:

  1. Go running. (Optional, but this will help you accomplish the other steps)
  2. Remove the Messenger app from your phone.
  3. Remove the Facebook app from your phone.
  4. Make a personal rule that you cannot check Facebook on your phone, only on a desktop computer.
  5. Turn off all email notifications from Facebook.

It took me about 18 months to follow all of these steps, and I can’t say that I regretted doing any of them. Similar steps could be taken for Snapchat, Twitter, Pinterest, or any other social network.

Reclaim your life! Go running!
