The lazy person's quick hack to tackling and reducing screen time

Grey is the new Black - Reduce addictiveness of your mobile by turning your phone to greyscale.

Mobiles are addictive things. They’re brilliant though, I for one, for years, was addicted to Angry Birds. Mobile phones can also be a killer of productivity, steal family and friends' time and damage sleep. They are probably 21st-century cigarettes.

There is one simple, quick and easy way to reduce the addictiveness and the desire to want to be on your phone. It is called grey scaling.

What is grey scaling?

Essentially, you are turning all the colours black and white. So it’s like an old 1950s movie but on your phone. It essentially kills the blue haze background your phone produces.

The instant you do this, going on Facebook, or going on any app is nowhere near as fun or interesting because the colours are what give it vitality and addictiveness to the brain. The colours help to create that dopamine hit.

By going on grayscale, you won’t want to be on your phone as much and you will be able to focus during work on the day-to-day stuff.
