Start the day with a to do list and check it at the end of the day. Jot down ‘pop up’ thoughts, commitments or ideas throughout the day. Do this on paper or digitally.
Remove sources of distraction on your devices. Delete apps, remove notification dots, disable phone sounds and vibrations - you can even put your phone in grayscale!
Set aside time to focus. Use DND mode or airplane mode, put phones out of sight and consider using noise cancelling headphones.
Check your phone usage and make plans to reduce the time spent
Single Tasking rather than multitasking
Create tech/device free zones at home
Tidy your physical space. Eliminate objects that derail productivity or add objects that help break/make habits and improve focus.
Do a delete digital clutter e.g. clean up device files, simplify your home screen, put into a different mode and manage folders
Label folders on phone with intentions or usage e.g. productivity tools, "Stay Away"
Challenge every piece of tech and set boundaries - is this good for me or needed?
