How to break Social Media Addiction & stay focused with a free browser extension! | BeTimeful

How much would your life be different? What skills would you pick, what side hustle would you start, or where will you travel? It might sound like a fantasy, but a browser extension promises to save you up to 2 hours per day and stop social media addiction!

Consequences of social media

According to Harvard University, people tend to waste on average 2 hours of their time daily on online distractions. Likewise, the University of London believes that online distractions, on average, reduce our IQ level by 10 points even when we ignore them. Lastly, according to Healthline, social media addiction is a leading cause of depression, anxiety, and poor sleep.

Here’s another fun fact: “Even if you immediately exit these platforms once distracted, it would take you half an hour just to regain your complete focus back!”.

Sadly, we’re all getting trapped in social media distractions. This distraction is costing us our productivity and time. When we feel bored or want to take a break, we plan to go to social media for half an hour just to end up being there for much longer. However, this has never been a coincidence.


Because, social media companies hire million-dollar engineers called “attention grabbers” where their sole job is to make the platform as addictive as possible so that they can sell us more ads and boost up their corporate profit. Thus, if you still think you’re considered a user and not a product on those platforms, you should really think again.
