Hey Team! For years I've tried different things to reduce screen time and times I picked up the phone. Deleting apps, to reinstall next week. Moving social apps off the home page, to only take more time arranging and rearranging mindlessly. HOWEVER, this week I found the most effective method yet.
Notifications = distraction. So many times I would hear that ding, I literally did just before I typed this sentence. But it was a productive notification, from a highly recommended app - Habits, reminding me to eat a healthy breakfast. I have basically wiped off every notification that is a distraction or could potentially unnecessarily distract me from a productive task.
It has been tremendously refreshing. So many mindless notifications - and with each pull to the phone to check, there is an inevitable re-check, or 27th check, of whatever news or social media has sucked me in that day.
