The first thing to be productive is to understand the importance of time. Here is the famous quote that might help you

Apps & phones are now the crucial part of everyone’s life.  Completely avoiding social apps might not possible. Set a specific time or time restriction. Like, checking out all the social apps twice in a week or maybe 5 minutes a day.
