How to turn a smartphone into a boring tool.

I will try to do the same now with my iPhone, by:

  • Deleting Twitter and Instagram
  • Removing everything from the home screen except the apps that I actually frequently use
  • Removing all widgets from the home screen
  • Setting “discrete” notifications to “off”
  • Disabling notifications for most apps except for my work chat and work mail program, as well as the messenger where I stay connected to my family
  • Scheduling D&D mode from 1 hour after work to 1 hour before work
  • Disabling notifications on the lock screen

I will try this out for one week and see how it goes!
