Your phone might be ruining your ho-ho-holidays

10 December, 2018
Smart phones in the silly season

Getting less social this Christmas 

Want to have a mentally healthy Christmas? You might want to put a ho-ho-hold on your social media exposure.

(That’s our last ho-pun, we swear.)

One study has showed that limiting social media to 30 minutes a day can lead to better wellbeing.

Study: NO MORE FOMO: LIMITING SOCIAL MEDIA DECREASES LONELINESS AND DEPRESSION

What can I do to limit my social media usage?

The three best methods are:

  1. Delete, delete, delete – get rid of the apps that you use the least, and keep the ones that give the most meaning (Insta if you’re a photo freak, Facebook for your family and friends, and so on).
  2. Make it difficult – how often would you check your feeds if you had to login every time you wanted to check them? Making the easy hard will form an irritating deterrent to constant usage.
  3. Time yourself – 30 minutes is a long, long time. Keep an eye on the clock or take notes on how long you’ve been scrolling.

Have a safe and (mostly) social media free holiday!

What Our Members Think

I joined as a CBHS member in 1978. Through many health events and challenges CBHS has always been there for me and my family. Their exceptional service over this time has always been appreciated.

What Our Members Think

I've not long joined CBHS from another fund, but so far I've been impressed by the super helpful and friendly staff, the higher claim limits and rebates at a very competitive premium, and how easy it is to lodge manual claims through the app. Thanks CBHS - you've won me over! 😃

I have been with CBHS since I began at CBA 15 years ago...Now I have three beautiful children, one who has a disability. Our top extras cover has been really essential for his early intervention. I do love the ease of claiming online.

What Our Members Think

I am relatively new to CBHS and am loving it already. I worked for a CBA subsidiary a long time ago but was still eligible to join. So much better that the for-profit funds - our premium is only a little more and we pay a lower co-contribution and get great benefits. I am loving the massage rebate for my partner and gym rebate for me!

What Our Members Think

I'm extremely happy with CBHS! I have been a customer for about six years. I think the price is reasonable. And i would refer you to my family and friends any day. Thank you CBHS!!!

What Our Members Think

Love CBHS as I never have to doubt that they've got my back when I need it. Been through other insurers who have limited options or limits, yet cost the same or more.
