Overcome Smartphone Addiction with Arsia Sasha’s TikTok Tip

In a world where our smartphones have become an extension of ourselves, it’s no surprise that many of us are grappling with the addictive pull of these devices. Even self-proclaimed productivity expert Arsia Sasha, a 30-year-old TikTok influencer, admits to falling prey to the irresistible urge of checking his phone frequently. Sasha uses his platform to share tips on focus and goal achievement, but he too confesses to losing concentration and spending 15-20 minutes on his phone when not actively engaged in work.

Research indicates that Australians check their smartphones around 85 times daily, dedicating over 46 hours a week to screen time. This habit is not just a time-waster; it also disrupts productivity and can lead to a significant loss of sleep, which can have serious health implications.

As Sasha explains in one of his TikTok videos, the reason why we find our phones so addictive is due to the dopamine hit our brain receives every time we check it. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter responsible for feelings of pleasure and satisfaction. Our phones have become a convenient crutch when we face uncertainty or don’t know how to proceed with a task.

To counter this addictive behaviour, Sasha suggests a simple but effective trick. He advises that the next time you feel the urge to reach for your phone, tell yourself that you’ll do so in about five minutes. Then, continue with your work. This simple mental exercise can help you realise that the urge to check your phone isn’t as overwhelming as it seems. Over time, this technique can help build resistance against the compulsion to constantly check your phone.

This smartphone addiction is not just affecting productivity at work but also personal relationships. Parents are often found ignoring their children in favour of their phones. Students have even been reported attacking teachers for confiscating their smartphones.

In light of these issues, it’s essential to consider the health benefits of an electric stand-up desk. These desks can improve posture, increase productivity, and reduce the risk of obesity and other health problems. When it comes to how to choose the best standing desk, consider factors like adjustability, ergonomics, and ease of use.

An electric height-adjustable standing desk is a great choice as it allows you to easily switch between sitting and standing positions. This can help break the cycle of constant phone checking by keeping you engaged and focused on your work. The best sit-stand desk should be able to accommodate your height and workspace needs, offering a comfortable and efficient work environment.

Another potential solution to curb smartphone addiction could be a TV lift. This innovative technology allows you to hide your TV when not in use, reducing the temptation of screen time and promoting healthier habits.

In conclusion, while smartphones have become an integral part of our lives, it’s crucial to maintain a healthy balance. Tips like those shared by Arsia Sasha, coupled with ergonomic office solutions like an electric height-adjustable standing desk or a TV lift, can help us manage our screen time better and lead healthier, more productive lives.

Great service and really quick shipping. It is great to know that you are getting quality parts from a Scandinavian manufacturer with your standing desk purchase rather than the cheap knock off stuff you get from other major brands. Reasonably priced for the quality too!

Guy was very accommodating with meeting him at a time that suited me. He assembled the desk prior to me collecting so I only had to carry it inside with help (it's pretty heavy). The desk is great, the storage racks underneath with the 6 x built in powerpoints was worth the extra money. I have a functioning & tidy workplace.
Guy was brilliant, I highly recommend.

Have now purchased 2 stand up office desks off Guy, benchmark sales service from him, all via email, so easy; from quote to plug in, only matched by the strong quality of these machines, solid and stable. If only everything in life was this easy and reliable.

I purchased an EDesk this month from Ergomotion, and it was a remarkably smooth transaction. Guy was eager to answer all my questions before my purchase. As a first-time buyer of a standing desk, I truly appreciated how he addressed my queries with thorough details and provided options within my budget.

The delivery process was also smooth, despite a slight delay in the ETA. Guy ensured I received all necessary updates from the courier/removalist.

I've been using the desk for a couple of weeks now and I'm satisfied with it. It's sturdy on all height adjustments and the motor works as expected. I also like oak finish because it's clean-looking and suits my room setup.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and I'll definitely recommend Ergomotion to someone looking for their desk needs.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

Great service from Guy and the team at Ergomotion! Helped with all my queries and was able to source a standing desk part for me when many others weren't able! Highly recommend!

Skip the big name brands and buy from Guy instead, 10/10 linak parts with a very well built tabletop.

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
