Reaching a Plateau in Minimizing Screen Time

I am still tracking and restricting my screen time as I’ve written in the past about. But after a few months of doing this I’ve reached a plateau in optimization. At this time I’m only able to get down to around 45 minutes of screen time a day on my iPhone. Most of this is taken up by messaging apps and searching around my podcast player feeds for what episode to play next.

My weekly average still ends up being around 55 minutes/day most weeks. Inevitably there ends up being a day that has more use a skews the results. I am going to try and get my weekly average a little lower by deferring tasks to do later when I am at my desk, which many times is more efficient. But if that doesn’t prove to be suitable optimization I am still comfortable with the outcome at this time.
