Starting a tech diet – how to use your devices for the better

Try the iMindMap app on your phone

The phrase “tech diet” has been flying around a lot in recent weeks – it seems there is a growing appetite for people to find new ways to cut down on their device usage. Social media is a particular pain point for most people, with the average adult losing nearly two hours a day to social media. While it may be tempting to lock away your phone and unplug the broadband, the inevitable truth is technology is an ingrained part of our daily routine. What really matters isn’t the time you spend on your devices, but what you use that time for.

Few would argue that mindlessly scrolling through social media is in any way life-enriching. In fact, overusing social media leads to further addiction and can come paired with even more unpleasant side effects, such as low self-esteem and unhealthy sleeping patterns. The trick to taking a true tech diet is about evaluating when, why and how you use your devices. Once you’ve done that, you can effectively adjust your tech consumption to achieve a better, healthier relationship. Here’s how you can get started:

Solve complex problems with a Six Thinking Hats Mind Map

Mind Mapping 6 Thinking Hats

When it comes to solving problems, your perspective only provides one view of a situation, limiting creativity. The Six Thinking Hats technique encourages you to switch between thinking styles to consider a problem from different angles and generate a variety of ideas and possible solutions.

You may be familiar with this technique already, but have you tried it with Mind Mapping? A Mind Map’s outward radiating branches and keywords prompt you to make associations between your thoughts and generate more ideas. With an overview of your ideas, you will easily spot the gaps in your analysis and can devote more attention to those areas.

Adopt a thinking style one-by-one, adding to your Mind Map as you go. During this exercise, you will have to review previous sections to complete another. A Mind Map’s structure doesn’t require you to think ‘in order’, so you can jump back and forth to build on different areas when needed.

Let’s get started…
