Hide your phone…but not too well.
I tried to get my puppy to do this for me, but she didn’t really understand. She never did care for fetch.
After she stared at me for a full minute with her head cocked, I decided instead to just turn it off and charge it in the kitchen. I was working, so it was really just a distraction anyway. So many text messages, so little time.
I’ve since taken to doing this randomly, usually when I’m having trouble focusing because I keep getting Facebook notifications or people won’t stop texting me. Ugh. I highly recommend it, because my productivity increased by like, 265% (* totally made up percentage).
