If you're trying to set better limits on how you use technology in 2017, and you're an iPhone user, you should use a feature called Do Not Disturb.
Although it won't shock you if you mindlessly scroll on Instagram for hours, it will help you control the notifications that sometimes lead to mindless email, social networks, and texting.
