7. Set goals for yourself 🎯
When we want to change, it’s motivating to have goals to achieve so we can keep on course. Choose realistic, gradual goals.
You won’t go from 50 hours of video gaming a week to 1 or 2 hours from one day to the next! One step at a time! To start with, what if you turned off all your screens on Saturday morning? 😉
8. Take stock
Take the time to observe 👀 your feelings, thoughts, and behaviours related to the frequency, duration, and context of your use of the Internet or video games. Are you more relaxed since you started playing less… or less relaxed? Is it easier to cut ️✂️ the length of your sessions or the number?
8. Consult someone
Solving a dependency problem alone isn’t easy. Don’t hesitate to get help if necessary from a counsellor at your school or the CLSC, or call us at Tel-jeunes! 💜
