Are you addicted to your phone? This simple trick may help. 

Digital addiction can cause some real problems for the addict and those around them. It has a negative effect on your life, of course. 

Well, this simple hack will help make your phone and tablet a lot less tempting.  The idea is to turn your phone into "greyscale mode." Basically,  it makes a lot of your favorite apps way less attractive. Tritan Harris, a former Google designer, said because they're less attractive you'll spend less time using the apps.

This kind of makes sense, right? In fact, I may just try this greyscale rule for when I am trying to spend less time on my phone on the weekend. Hopefully, it helps me to be more present in what's going around me.
