Getting started with grayscale
So how do I go gray?
Going gray is simple! For iPhones, the option is built into the OS. For Android, the options are the new Google Digital Wellness Application (Android 9.0+), or the developer mode option (Android 5.0 - 8.0). You can find instructions for both Android and iPhone below.
"I've been doing this a month now and my phone usage has dropped dramatically. It's back to being a tool and not a reward system."
"I decided to switch my phone's appearance to grayscale and oh my goodness this is amazing. The effect kicked in after only a few seconds, particularly after I pressed my home button and saw just how dull and lifeless my home screen was. It also helped that I've always liked the white-gray-black colours. Anyway, wanted to thank you for convincing me to give this a try!"
"I love it! Using grayscale is a definite benefit. Keep up the good work! Eventually, my next move will be grayscaling my laptop"
"I tried it. It's awful. I love it."
