Using reminders

We use memory devices to offload our need to remember everything all the time. But these tools have slowly shifted from a source of calm to just another source of interruption.

For example, you're working and you suddenly hear a notification pop, reminding you of a meeting in 30 minutes. Your brain will go in the meeting mode and you won't be able to go back to the task you were doing.
