Do Not Disturb.
What a wonderful and powerful setting on your phone, a way to silence all pings, beeps, and notifications while still having full use of your device when you need it.
I try and keep my phone on Do Not Disturb as much as possible unless I’m expecting a text or call. I’m checking my phone when it suits me. I don’t need interrupted while I’m writing, or when I’m with other people, or even when I’m out for a walk by myself.
If I’ve decided to do something I definitely don’t need my phone stealing my attention away for something that probably won’t matter tomorrow.
And the best part is you can still be contacted in an emergency, if someone tries to phone twice in a row it’ll get through and my phone will ring.
Try it for a day, it’s very peaceful.
