Tips To Reduce Notifications On Your Phone

Tips To Reduce Notifications On Your Phone
  • Remove all unnecessary items from the home screen to reduce your need to check for notifications.
  • Use a bland background.
  • Put all of your apps, except three, in one folder named “Apps” and use the search function to find them. The three apps on the home screen represent things you choose to do on the phone if you’re not responding to a push notification.
  • Turn all notifications off. If you can’t do that turn off the notifications you don’t need and if the app has time sensitive notifications, make the app quickly accessible in the folder.
  • Use widgets to have easy access to things you might need throughout the day.

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 .



Some changes that you can not make, if you want
  1. Deleting all your social media apps
  2. Reducing your home screen to six apps
  3. Forcing yourself not to use your phone

Once you've got the flow of email reduced to messages that matter, it's time to clear the non-urgent out of your inbox.

  • Reply if a very quick reply is possible, like Thanks or Great or On it.
  • Reply with a macro if one of your pre-written replies works.
  • Forward/Delegate emails that others can handle.
  • Process later. The "to process" is the second folder.
  • Archive or delete if no further action is needed.

Once this is done, only the deeply urgent things are left.
