What happened to family time, connection and conversation?
“Lost time is never found again.” – Benjamin Franklin
Take control of your time, work, relationships and sleep with these 3 action items.
1. Control the Smart Phone Interruptions
When you need to deeply focus on your work or be more present with family/friends- take control of the distracting rings, pings and dings in one easy move. Open up ‘Settings’ on your smart phone and turn off ‘Notifications’ or use the ‘Do not Disturb’ feature. It’s a temporary action step that will provide you with some quiet time.
2. Sleep and Technology Don’t Mix
Using technology before bed disrupts the natural production of melatonin which helps you sleep. Experts suggest disconnecting from devices 60 minutes before bed.
Become more protective of your sleep time by setting up one simple boundary… do not charge your phone at your bedside table. Use a traditional alarm clock to wake you. Removing your phone from your reach will help you resist any urges to check it before bed or get lost scrolling when you wake up.
3. Discern and Delete
