A Radical Guide to Spending Less Time on Your Phone

🔒 forge.medium.com

I know a lot of people that feel like they inadvertently spend too much time on their phones.

Over the years, though, that pride has worn off. My phone, once a source of liberation — I could check my email without having to go home, which meant I could spend more time out doing things — eventually became a weight that tied me down. Instead of making me better at my job, it started preventing what Cal Newport calls deep work” — focused, dedicated, creative time. Instead of helping me have fun, it was making me miserable.

So recently, I’ve been thinking a lot about how to use it less. About how to get the benefits from the technology without all the downsides.

I have done some of these things for a long time, others I would not recommend. All are good food for thought.
