8. Limit your phone

8. Limit your phone

When you talk with somebody, we put our phones on silent and be focused on that person. Why we can't do that for ourself also?

Our phones can make us lose track of time. It's easy to take a glimpse to a notification and then, boom, one hour later you're still scrolling. 

Put your phone upside down, on silent, or use the focus mode if your smartphone has one.

Carry a full water bottle everywhere you go and drink water it when you feel bored, hungry, nervous or stressed.

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!

Shankul Varada

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.

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!
