We're all addicted to our phones in some way or another. But if you know someone who really has a problem than this simple trick just might help.

A former web designer for Google has come up with a way to make your phone less attractive to look at. It's called 'grayscale' or black and white. By simply going into your settings and making your display look black and white, you'll end up using your phone a lot less. Why? Because subconsciously, you won't find your phone nearly as pretty to look at and therefore won't use it as much! Simple right?

If you're an iPhone user like me, here's how you do it. Go to Settings...General...Accessibility...Display Accommodations...and select Color Filters. Then switch Color Filters ON and select Grayscale.

Try it on your phone and see if it affects how often you use it!
