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.

Zen to Done (ZTD)

It's a productivity system that teaches how to take a simple approach to improving your productivity, by encouraging you to focus on forming one productivity-boosting habit at a time. 

The Minimalist Habits of Zen to Done

  • Collect: Get ideas and to-dos out of your brain and onto a list.
  • Process: Review your list daily and decide how to act on each item.
  • Plan: Pick a few high priority items to accomplish each week and every day.
  • Do: Schedule time to accomplish your selected to-dos without interruptions.

The Collect Habit

To clear your mind and improve focus, get your ideas and to-dos out of your mind and onto a list. 

Documenting to-dos in the moment lessens the likelihood that you'll forget to do something and gives you a master list of to-dos to reference when you're trying to decide where to direct your time.

Minimalism as a form of mindfulness

Minimalist could be about silencing the noise of an increasingly loud world, about calming the millions of thoughts that flow through my monkey mind and giving yourself permission to slow down and take a breath.
