Do not disturb doesn’t work. You might want to go to the next level.

The gloom and doom of our phones are destructive to our work, relationships and our mental health.

I’m sure you know it’s ruining your work by the constant notifications, the FOMO that you cannot control and the attention residue it causes.

As for our mental health. How is my smartphone hurting me in this area.

Check this out.

It Distorts Our Perception Of Reality…

How many times have you heard people mention things like this:

“The world is total $hit.”

“Did you see that horrible story on social media?”

“The world is coming to an end.”

“I cannot believe they are going on a vacation again!”

Our smartphones in combination with social media has the ability to distort the users perception. The reason for this is because the media is biased of course and whatever bleeds, leads.

Now, this is one of those aspects of where you have to decide does your phone and social media use you or do you use it? Unfortunately, most people let the use of this tool impact them in a negative way and are totally clueless on how destructive this actually is.

DND didn’t work.

I tried DND (do not disturb). That still let people and some notifications in. Then, I switched to airplane mode. Cutting off all communication in or out.

What a great feeling.

I turn it on-

-When I am speaking

-With clients

-Sleeping

-Working out

-When I’m working and need to focus

I can hear it now. I can’t do that.

Can’t means won’t.

You can… just flip it on and it’s done!

The problems with our phones and social media are complex I’ll give you that. However, the solution is easy, simple and fast.
