Why you should quit social media

As a firm believer of managing your time, I want to share this uuuuhmazing Podcast with you!
Cal Newport is a computer science professor at Georgetown University. In addition to academic research, he writes about the intersection of technology and society. He’s particularly interested in the impact of new technologies on our ability to perform productive work or lead satisfying lives.
Cal recommends building “fences” around our phones so that we’re not using them mindlessly all day.
So get ready to learn more tools to be more focused, present and creative on Episode 770.
In This Episode, You Will Learn:
How to train your focus (2:00​)
The three benefits from being alone (8:00​)
Why you need “analog” hobbies (30:00​)
Why anxiety has risen in younger generations (32:00​)

Plus much more…

This is what my phone looks like:

Time management and become happier and more focused Krijg meer tijd en focus en voel je gelukkiger
My phone looks like this (see image above).
  • I'm on "don't disturb" daily from 6PM until 8.30AM

 

  • I keep my phone on silent when I work

 

  • I've got all my notifications off

 

  • I have my Whatsapp for Business on auto-reply stating to business contacts that I only WhatsApp only for personal use

 

  • I don't have email / Facebook / Facetime / Messenger / Instagram / LinkedIn / Twitter / Clubhouse / Gmail / TikTok, etc. on my phone

 

  • and I have tons of other stuff to help me create more free time and focus.
As a business, but also as a mom, I'm VERY intentional with my time!
