1. Remove unused apps

The first step to managing distractions on your phone is to remove the apps you no longer need.

  • These apps take up storage space in your phone’s memory and bandwidth when they update themselves.
  • But worst of all, these zombie apps fill your device with visual clutter and distraction .

2. Replace screen time

2. Replace screen time

Remove apps that seek your constant attention, like social media. Replace the screen time for those apps by browsing only through a laptop/desktop.

  • Apps like Audible for listening to books and Pocket for reading articles can stay.
  • Breaking news apps with blaring alerts that did nothing but stress me out had to go.

3. Make notifications less intrusive

3. Make notifications less intrusive

  1. Sound: An audible notification is the most interruptive and should only be granted to essential or harmless apps – banking, work IM, file downloader, or calls.
  2. Sight: After sound, visual triggers are the next level of interruption. Allow notifications that matter the most while you are using your phone – ongoing chats in meetings, OTP from SMS, etc.
  3. Sayonara: The rest of the apps on your phone can kiss notification privileges goodbye. You can open them only when you need them.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
