How to make a jpg picture from
A MS Word document
Sooner or later it comes that moment where you have to take a copy of a document
from Ms Word and send it via phone, so, how to you do that? Well, it‘s simple
enough even if you have limited computer knowledge, so, let‘s get going on this
1: Choose the Document to open in MS Word:
For a good picture make sure your fonts are at a minimal of 14 size and its going to
be half a page to no more then full page in length if you‘re sending it to cell phone.
2: Highlighting Document in
Now once you‘ve done that, on
your document click on the
beginning of the documents then
click (left mouse button) and
hold and drag the mouse to the
end of the document as seen in
the right picture.
3: Copying Document in MS Word:
Right Click on highlighted document and a menu will pop up as seen in the picture
below, click copy. At this point open Paint.
4: Pasting Document in Paint:
When you open Paint make sure your new page is large enough for your document.
Now Click Paste, go to view and adjust View Out so you can see the hole
document. When done, go back to HOME tab and put curser (it will be a cross of
arrows) and click ‗n‘ hold and adjust the position of your document then left click
on the outside of the dotted box.
As seen in the picture above I used the SELECT (highlighted) button to outline the
document and then click CROP button.
6: Now let’s save:
Now up at the left corner (red box) click on the
down arrow and save menu will open up ().
Select SAVE AS then select JPEG Picture and
you‘re done, unless otherwise specified a
particular file the default file is MY PICTURES.
So, as you can see by the final picture on the right
the document that was needed, got to its destination,
the whole procedure in real time only takes ten
minutes or so. Now for different cell phones I
recommend DROPBOX. It will make your life
easier on moving around documents and pictures.
Any questions please email us!
Detoxify from your cell phone while
on me time!
Let’s face you going on me time, but, do I
have to take my cell phone? Well, the answer
is yes! Now, calm down there are ways to set
your phone to filter the calls you only want to
hear. I spend some time on the internet
searching to get the information you need and
I found the best and easiest way to put your phone on Do-Not-Disturb mode on
Android (marshmallow) cell phones and for you folks with iPhone you have Do-
Not-Disturb mode too. This article is by Joe Fedewa, for the complete article and
more click on his name.
How to use Do Not Disturb
There are two different ways to use Do Not Disturb: manually and automatically.
First, we‘ll go over the manual method. This is what you‘ll use when you want to
put your phone into DND for a random amount of time. Maybe you want to take a
quick 10-minute nap with no distractions or you‘re at a movie theater. You can
quickly enable DND in just a few steps.
Note: the steps in this guide are based on Android 7.0 Nougat.
Manually enable Do Not Disturb
1. Swipe down to show the Quick Settings
2. Tap Do not disturb
3. Choose one of the three options mentioned above
4. You can enable DND ―Until you turn this off‖ or for a specific amount of
5. Tap DONE
To manually disable Do Not Disturb, simply toggle it off from the Quick Settings.
Automatically enable Do Not Disturb
Where Do Not Disturb really shines is the ―Automatic rules.‖ With these settings
you can make Do Not Disturb work for you. It will automatically turn on (and off)
when you need it. The obvious way to use this is every night while you sleep. Do
Not Disturb can be enabled every night at a certain time and turn off when your
alarm goes off in the morning. That‘s just one way to use it. Here‘s how to set it up:
Go to Sound > Do not disturb > Automatic rules
You‘ll see default rules for Weekend, Weeknight, and Event. Select one or
Edit the rule to fit your needs:
o Name your rule
o Days, Start time, and End time: Set your rule‘s schedule.
o Do not disturb: Choose whether your rule uses ―Alarms only,‖ ―Priority
only,‖ or ―Total silence.‖
o Alarm can override end time: Choose whether alarms will sound if
scheduled during your rule.
Event rules have different options
o During events for: If you have multiple accounts with Google Calendar
events, you can choose which account your rule uses.
o Where reply is: Your rule always applies to events to which you‘ve said
―Yes.‖ You can also turn it on for events where you said ―Maybe‖ or
haven‘t yet replied.
o Do not disturb: Choose whether your rule uses ―Alarms only,‖ ―Priority
only,‖ or ―Total silence.‖
That‘s it! Now your phone will only distract you when
you‘re ready for it. No more interrupted meetings or
early morning telemarketers. Do Not Disturb is a
powerful ally in the war against notifications. Use it

Article by: Sellfapp -- http://sellfapp.com/live-better/7-apps-to-plug-and-enjoy-your-vacation/
Summer has just begun, and the sun coming through the window of your
office certainly does not help you focus: instead of listening to your colleagues
during the meeting, I bet you‘re fantasizing about what to pack for your next
travel! After a year of working at your desk, your mental health deserves a break
However, if you are like me and you can never really unplug, feeling the need to be
always connected even in the middle of the African bush (where indeed the signal is
great!), your vacation is likely to become even more stressful. In fact, when you go
on vacation your business doesn’t: how to deal with customers that call you while
you are away, with a ton of incoming emails, and with social networks that require
constant attention? Eventually, with the constant fear to lose something, you end up
checking your phone even more often than usual.
Well, it‘s time to find a solution and technology is here to help. The first step is to
set an out-of-office email response: every provider allows you to set an automatic
answer to incoming email messages, warning senders that you are not in the office
until a certain date. Now let’s see 7 apps that can help us relax and enjoy our
vacations even more.
Offtime is the evolution of the auto-response email: it blocks incoming calls and
SMS, letting pass through only those of the people you want, such as family
(and possibly your boss), and sending automatic replies to the others. Start creating
a profile for the vacation period, choose which applications you want to be silenced
and which contacts you consider important, and write the SMS answer you want to
be sent. Then just activate the profile and enjoy your peace! If you feel the need to
check what‘s going on, in the Notifications sections you can see everything that
happened while ―offtime‖, such as e-mails, calls and messages that the app had
blocked. But taking a break by yourself is not enough: you can share your profile
with family and friends, so as to be all free from notifications and enjoy your

Social media can be a nightmare: not publishing or sharing content for an entire
week can result in followers‘ loss and invisibility decline. Luckily, there are tools
like Hootsuite, which allows you to automate the publication of posts from all
your social profiles at the same time. After connecting your accounts, you just
need to prepare the post for each of them, adding links, photos and text. Simply
choose the date and time of publication and here you are, Hootsuite will create a
queue of posts ready to be published. The mobile application allows you to receive
notifications from all your social accounts, filtering important events, such as direct
messages and mentions, and leaving out less useful and annoying notifications, such
as likes and shares.

Talking about social media, the problem is not only publication: while on holiday,
we risk missing what is going on, from updates and events, to news in your
industry. Here is where an app like Nuzzle can help: it collects all the most
important articles you should read, which are shared by people you follow on
Twitter or related to your interests, and presents them as a press release,
directly in your mailbox. Scrolling through all the articles when you are back
home (or even once a day on vacation, if you can‘t help it!) is much easier and you
will be able to go back to work impressing your colleagues with the latest news.

Accounting has always been a tough nut to crack, but with Xero you can stop
worrying about it. Designed for small businesses, it allows you to automate the
sending and receiving of invoices, so that you can be sure your customers will pay
you in time. Thanks to the Xero mobile app, you can manage your accounting
wherever you are, adding travel expenses and making sure that everything is all
right. This way you will avoid endless phone calls with your accountant while
playing beach volley with your kids!

There is nothing more stressful than having to solve a client‘s problem while you
are trying to relax. If customer care is a very important aspect for your business,
you can‘t help using services like Zendesk, which enables you to manage your
entire help-desk through a mobile app. You can directly receive notification
about customers‘ requests, skimming the important ones so as to give priority to
those who matter most. Even better, you can give your team the task to answer to
customers and then check their work from the app, to see the number of requests
and solved tickets. This way you won‘t have a ton of work waiting for you when
you get back home!

One of the nightmares of the so-called Information Era are passwords. How to
remember them all, from passwords to access your social accounts to websites
ones? And more, how to share them safely with co-workers? Beyond the traditional
password management tools, which store passwords to fill login forms
automatically, Meldium is designed to share passwords and accounts with your
team: when you hire someone, or if someone replaces you temporarily, you can
create a new access to the accounts you want and manage password in a totally
secure way. This way you no longer have to invent a secret code to communicate
your passwords to collaborators!

After describing apps to automate work tasks, now let‘s talk about an app that helps
you with more enjoyable activities as well. With IFTT (If This Then That) you
can create “recipes” of events, in which an event that occurs in one application
triggers a reaction in another one. For example, the receiving of an email can
trigger the saving of the attachment in Evernote. Here are some recipes that can be
very useful on vacation:
When you take a picture on your smartphone, the photo is saved into a
specific folder on Dropbox. More, sharing the IFTT recipe with friends and
family, you can add their photos in the same folder as well!
When you got tagged on Facebook, it saves the photo into a folder on
Google Drive (or on Dropbox as before), so as not to miss a single shot!
And to conclude… when you land after the flight, it sends a message to your
mother, so she won‘t be worried when you forget to call her!

How to beach-proof your phone
Protect it from sun, sand, and seawater. By Sophie Bushwick June 23, 2017
If you want to bring your phone to the beach (we know you do), you'll have to protect it from the sea.
Pictures from Pixabay
On a hot summer day, the ocean beckons. So you slap on some sunscreen, grab a
towel, and head for the beach. Just as you stretch out on the sand to soak up those
sweet rays and scare up some vitamin D, your hand itches—you need to grab your
smartphone. Maybe you want to snap a photo of the churning surf, or blast the latest
pop hit, or video-chat with your unlucky friend who couldn't make it to the shore
this weekend. Whatever the urge, you'll need your phone to satisfy it.
The problem is those things that make a beach a beach—the hot sun, gritty sand,
and briny ocean—can also wreak havoc on electronic devices. To keep it safe at the
shore, take these precautions before you load your phone into your beach tote. And
bear in mind that there's no way to completely beach-proof a phone. Carry it oceanward
at your own risk.
Beat the heat
On a hot day, the sun beats down from above and the sand radiates warmth from
below. Leave your phone exposed, and this heat can crack its screen, drain its
battery, or even make it explode. To protect your device, keep it out of direct
sunlight and off the ground. For example, you might place it on a towel and fold a
corner of the fabric over the phone, toss a t-shirt on top, or keep it in a tote bag.
Activity can make your phone produce its own heat. Keep it quiet by shutting down
power-hungry apps such as mobile games. If you receive a heat warning (or simply
notice your phone getting too hot) try turning off location, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi;
putting your device in airplane mode; or even shutting it down until it cools off.
You can even aim a hand-held battery-powered fan at the phone when it starts
In a pinch, you can place your phone in a cooler (provided the cooler has a dry area
or the phone is wrapped in a waterproof case) for a few minutes. Don't leave it in
there for too long though—while too much heat may harm your device, too much
cold can kill it too.
Keep sand out of ports
Sand always manages to sneak into every available nook and cranny, and your
phone isn't immune to this phenomenon. It's best to keep the silica grains at bay
with dust plugs. In a pinch, you can grab an old cable, cut off the part that plugs into
your phone, and use that as a DIY solution.
Even if sand stays out of your phone's ports, it can still scratch up the screen and
creep around the edges of buttons. Luckily, most waterproofing solutions (more on
those in a minute) involve wrapping your phone in an impermeable case, which
should also keep out sand.
If worse comes to worst and some sand sneaks into your phone, let gravity help you
shake it out. If a few stubborn grains stick around, try drawing them out with a
cheap plastic cuticle pusher.
Don't get wet
Briny seawater accelerates corrosion more than relatively clean tap water. So, even
if you have a waterproof phone, you don't want a wave to hit it.
The easiest, cheapest way to protect your phone from wayward splashes is a humble
Ziplock bag. Toss your phone in, squeeze out as much air as possible, and seal the
zipper shut. Water and sand won't get in, and the plastic is so thin that you can
actually use the device through the bag. Its fingerprint sensor may not work, but
once you type in your PIN or password, you can swipe, type, and even chat on the
phone without exposing it to the elements. This hack has the added benefit of
keeping the screen safe from your smeary sunblock and salt-covered fingers.
If you want to level up, invest in a waterproof case. From the one-size-fits-all
DryCase to more structured options like LifeProof, you can find your phone an
ideal beach buddy. Just check the specs before purchasing to make sure that the
case will protect your ports from sand as well as water.
Now you're all set. Go forth and beach it up!

15 Reasons Not To Take Your Phone on Vacation
Here's a radical suggestion that's not radical at all: next vacation, leave your
smartphone at home. If absolutely necessary, buy the cheapest prepaid phone and
give the number only to your closest family and friends. You'll be ready for
emergencies, but out of range for everything else.
Here's why this makes great sense:
1. You'll relive those magical days - the whole of human history up to 20 years ago
- when people traveled without phones.
2. People will realize that they can solve problems without you. If this causes you to
fear for your job, you are making a living by putting out fires instead of truly adding
3. You might actually hear what your kids, spouse and friends are saying.
4. After three days, you will realize that life can actually be better without email,
text messages and the Web.
5. If you need to buy something, you can actually go to a "store" and pay "money"
for the items you need.
6. When you take a tram over a gorgeous landscape to the top of a mountain, you
will form a wonderful memory that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
7. By emptying your brain of unimportant, incessant trivia, you will make room for
great ideas and your true feelings.
8. You will have time to actually talk to the people around you.
9. The odds that you will text while driving will drop to zero.
10. You will get to calculate restaurant tips in your head, proving that your brain
11. Instead of getting drawn into a deadly three-hour conference call, you will
spend that time jet skiing on a blissful summer afternoon.
12. Your irritated and impatient demeanor will fade away, and your good-natured
personality will return.
13. Your spouse will remember why s/he married you in the first place.
14. If you are not yet married, you might actually meet someone special... instead of
not even noticing as Your One True Soulmate walks right by you.
15. When you get back to work, you will be smarter, more effective, and more
likely to succeed.
By the way, if you think I'm kidding, think again. Take that smartphone, turn it off,
and leave it in your drawer. If, by chance, you are afraid to do this, I'd like to
suggest that you badly need to reevaluate your life.
Once people get over the initial irritation they can't reach you, they will shift to
another mode: envy.

10 Ways to Prepare Your Cell Phone for a Trip
Charge up that phone the night before a trip: Most of us have this straightforward
— yet vital — task down pat. But that‘s not all you need to do before bringing a
phone abroad. Here are 10 additional tips that smartphone-wielding travelers should
heed before hitting the road, from adding travel apps to guarding against exorbitant
Know Your Plan (and Your Phone)
Step one: Examine your phone. Only GSM and CDMA phones will work abroad.
Check with your provider to verify that your phone is operable overseas. Step two:
Examine your phone plan. A thorough investigation of your data and calling
contract will reveal exactly how much it will cost to make a few phone calls or
download some emails while abroad. It‘s expensive, right? That‘s where step three
comes in: Consider buying an international calling or data package. If you plan on
using your device overseas and don‘t want to swap out your SIM card (more on that
later), an international plan is likely a wise investment. Simply call your provider
and request a temporary plan that works in your destination of choice; in most
cases, you can cancel the plan upon return (just make sure there‘s no minimumlength-of-time
One provider in particular, however, doesn‘t necessitate the purchase of an
international package. Earlier this month, T-Mobile announced that it will get rid of
roaming charges for data usage in more than 100 countries, and it will cap
international calling rates at 20 cents per minute.
Consider a Text Package
One or two text messages from the road might be all you need to use during your
trip. You might want to text your family to let them know you‘ve arrived safely,
text your pet or house sitter, or send a cheery text from the beach to make a friend
jealous. Sound good? Then purchase a text package before you leave. For example,
AT&T offers Global Messaging Packages that start at $10 per month for 50
messages sent from more than 150 countries. Messages received are deducted from
your domestic plan.
Get the Right Gadgets
From portable batteries to travel-friendly phone cases, a range of gear and add-ons
will enhance and protect your phone while abroad. Some of our favorites include
the MapiCases leather belt-clip iPhone case; myCharge and New Trent‗s
rechargeable, portable battery packs; and GoSwype microfiber cleaning cloths.
Turn Off Data
If you don‘t plan on using data while abroad but plan to pack your phone, there are
two steps you need to take before departure: Turn off cellular data and turn off data
roaming. You‘ll find instructions for doing so on an iPhone here, and here for an
Android phone. Contact your cellular provider for further details on shutting off
data. Fail to shut down the automatic downloads that bring emails, program
updates, meeting notifications, and other data to your phone and you‘ll likely see
some very expensive roaming charges on your bill at the end of the month.
Stock Up on Apps
There are umpteen mobile apps that could prove very valuable on your trip. Ideally,
you‘ll want to snap them up well before your departure date, so that you have time
to research, compare prices, and, of course, download the apps before you leave.
Some of these might include flight-notification apps, map apps, itinerary apps,
language-translation apps, destination-guide apps, gas-finder apps, and weather
apps. For more ideas, see Nine Apps That May Change How You Travel and 10
Free Travel Apps you‘ve Never Heard of.
Avoid data charges for big downloads on the road by lining up your music and
entertainment purchases before you head out that door. Does your airline offer good
in-flight entertainment? If not, a few episodes of your favorite show might make
coach class a little more bearable. Will your hotel room have an iPod player? If yes,
then a new album or two could enliven your stay. Further, there‘s little that will
improve a long cross-country rail trip or an interminable wait at the airport more
than a diverting and fun new playlist.
Pack Chargers and Adapters in Your Carry-on
On the road, chargers and adapters are as important as your phone itself; after a day
or two, your device is useless without them. You wouldn‘t put your iPhone in your
checked luggage, right? So your charger and adapter need to go in your personal
item or carry-on bag with your other essentials (medicine, wallet, identification,
etc.). This way, if your suitcase gets lost, you won‘t need to pay a visit to one of
these airport vending machines to buy a new charger.
Take Some Important Photos
This tip is more about using your phone to prepare for your trip than preparing your
phone; nonetheless, it belongs on your to-do list. Prepare a digital backup in case
your identification gets lost or stolen. With your camera phone, take a photo of your
passport or driver‘s license, and email the photo to yourself. You might also want to
take a photo of the contents of your checked bag, which may come in handy if the
airline loses your luggage. (Use the photo to help document your missing
belongings when filling out a claim form.) Throughout your trip, take advantage of
the camera on your phone and snap photos of anything that might serve as a helpful
reminder, from your airport parking-lot spot to your hotel-room number.
But first, you need to ensure that you have space on your phone to store such
images, which brings us to our next tip.
Check Available Storage
The perfect yet ephemeral travel shot appears: a candy-red sunset or a humpback‘s
tail emerging from the ocean. You aim, shoot ... and a message appears on your
phone saying that there is no available storage left. You lost the shot! Argh! To
prevent this pesky little mishap, check your phone‘s storage before you leave. On
an iPhone, for example, you can do this via the ―General‖ tab within ―Settings.‖
Free up room on your phone by transferring photos and videos to your computer,
deleting unused apps, and clearing your Internet cache.
Get a Country-Specific SIM Card
Will you be spending a lot of time in one particular country? A prepaid SIM card
for the region you‘re visiting is an economical choice for overseas phone usage, and
it allows you to make calls and use data exactly as many locals do: through a local
provider. Switch your SIM card and you‘ll have a new local phone number and
likely an affordable plan that puts scary-expensive international calling packages to
shame. You won‘t be able to make or receive calls via your usual phone number,
Here‘s how to get one: Either pick one up prior to your departure date or get one
from a local store after you arrive. We recommend the former, especially for those
who don‘t want to waste precious trip time shopping around for SIM cards. You can
order the cards online from companies such as Telestial and Brightroam.
But remember that not all phones will accept new SIM cards. You must have an
―unlocked‖ GSM phone for this to work.

Last Updated: May 12, 2018 See Article History
Ivan Edward Sutherland, (born May 16, 1938, Hastings, Neb., U.S.), American
electrical engineer and computer scientist and winner of the 1988 A.M. Turing
Award, the highest honour in computer science, for ―his pioneering and visionary
contributions to computer graphics, starting with Sketchpad, and continuing after.‖
Sutherland is often recognized as the father of computer graphics.
Sutherland earned a bachelor‘s degree (1959) in electrical engineering from the
Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie Mellon University), a master‘s
degree (1960) in electrical engineering from the California Institute of Technology
(Caltech), and a doctorate (1963) in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology (MIT). His doctoral dissertation, ―Sketchpad: A Man-
Machine Graphical Communication System,‖ under the direction of the information
theory pioneer Claude Shannon, was the start of computer graphics, the graphical
user interface (GUI), and computer-aided design (CAD) programs. See computeraided
After leaving MIT, Sutherland was commissioned as a first lieutenant in the U.S.
Army and served as an electrical engineer in the National Security Agency (1963)
and then as a researcher at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (1964),
where he initiated projects in time-sharing systems and artificial intelligence.
Following his discharge from the army, Sutherland held professorships at Harvard
University (1965–68), the University of Utah (1968–76), and Caltech (1976–81). In
1968 Sutherland and David Evans, from Utah‘s computer science department,
established Evans and Sutherland, a company that did pioneering work in computer
graphics and printer languages. While at Caltech, Sutherland also worked as a
consultant for the RAND Corporation (1976–80). In 1980 Sutherland cofounded
Sutherland, Sproull and Associates, which was acquired in 1990 by Sun
Microsystems, Inc., an American computer manufacturer, and formed the core of
the new Sun Microsystems Laboratories, where Sutherland served as a vice
president. Sutherland was named a fellow at Sun in 2001.
In addition to the Turing Award, Sutherland received the first U.S. National
Academy of Engineering Zworykin Award (1972) and a Smithsonian Computer
World Award (1996). He was elected to the U.S. National Academy of Engineering
(1972) and the U.S. National Academy of Sciences (1978).

How to Keep Your Phone From Ruining Your Vacation
by Jordi Lippe-McGraw
The Points Guys
May 26th, 2018
Cell phones are great for keeping in touch with friends and family while traveling
— and it‘s hard to beat having instant access to a high-end, lightweight camera. But
on vacation, you want to take a break and unplug, right?
Well, no. Despite a growing interest in entire retreats dedicated to ―tech-free
wellness,‖ it turns out that we‘re more addicted than ever.
According to tech-services company Asurion, Americans check their phones an
average of 80 times a day while on vacation. And some people look at their phones
more than 300 times each day. Even on a beautiful beach or immersed in a stunning
cityscape, people are checking their phones once every 12 minutes on average.
As you can imagine, all of this screen time isn‘t great for our mental and physical
When we put our phones aside, psychologist Jessica Nicolosi told The Points Guy,
we experience a profound sense of disconnection. We feel lonely in a room full of
people because we have stopped connecting, stopped saying good morning, stopped
smiling at others. We no longer use our voices to communicate, choosing instead to
send a text message — or worse, a picture meant to demonstrate our emotional
The odd thing is that we typically plan vacations designed to help us disconnect.
That‘s the entire point. Yet we cannot stop glancing at the screens we keep in our
back pocket or the palms of our hands.
And not being able to detach can lead to physical side effects.
―My patients report a feeling of intense anxiety when they step away from their
phones, and their description of the feeling is frighteningly similar to listening to
someone struggling with drug addiction trying not to relapse,‖ Nicolosi said.
―Studies have found that overuse of cell phones is related to reports of headaches,
irritability and anger, along with difficulty concentrating and anxiety.‖
If that‘s not bad enough, too much time on our cell phones can also lead to sleeping
―Obtaining restorative sleep is already challenging on the road because our
sympathetic nervous system, the basis of our flight-or-fight response, is more
active,‖ sleep expert Rebecca Robbins said. ―Unfortunately, in the face of sleep
difficulty, one common approach is to reach for our cell phones. But that hinders
our ability to fall asleep.‖
Why? Aside from the content on our mobile phones being stimulating — anxiously
reading emails from a boss, for example, or scrolling through social media —
mobile phones emit blue light that can suppress melatonin, the hormone that
regulates our sleep cycles.
Knowing how disruptive cell phones can be, especially if we‘re unable to unplug
even during a well-intentioned vacation, is a start. But sometimes, learning to
disconnect is a multistep process that takes time and discipline.
Before your next trip, try these three steps to help you prepare for a legitimately
tech-free (OK, maybe just tech-light) holiday.
1. Download an app
Yes, this suggestion seems counterintuitive. Stay with us. There‘s an app called
Moment designed to track how much you use your phone every day. In addition to
putting the amount of time you spend on your phone into (sometimes horrifying)
perspective, Moment can help you reduce the hours you spend on your device. (It‘s
Before you leave for vacation, set a daily limit. The app will notify you when you
go over. At the very least, Moment points out how long and how often you scroll
through Instagram or check emails — something you may not even notice.
2. Make small disconnection commitments
Like any addiction you want to break, you have to start small to make significant
changes. That‘s why Nicolosi suggests choosing one or two times during your day
to put your phone aside to begin breaking the habit.
―Perhaps you choose not to look at your phone for the first hour of your day,‖ she
said. ―Or maybe you need to start much smaller, and commit not to pick up the
phone when your partner goes to the bathroom. Whatever it is, take that time to
look up and notice your surroundings. Slowly, you‘ll become more comfortable
If you start to get anxious, Nicolosi suggests using self-talk to remind yourself that
whatever is there will still be there in an hour.
3. Power down before bed
Wouldn‘t it be great if we could power down our minds like our cell phones?
Unfortunately, it does take time. That‘s why we have to look at the hours before
bedtime as a part of the sleep-onset process itself.
―Ideally, you should avoid cell phones 90 minutes before you want to go to bed,‖
Robbins said. ―If you can‘t do that, at least 30 minutes will help, too.‖
Replace that time with something relaxing such as a soak in the hotel hot tub,
reading or meditating.
―Sleep is a process,‖ Robbins said. ―If you find yourself tossing and turning, get out
of bed, keep the lights low, sit in an armchair to read or meditate, and return to bed
when you are tired. Don‘t get on your phone.‖
