It’s obviously the opposite of multitasking. We’re constantly trying to find more and more content. Our focus is splitted into several things at the same time. Try to focus on one activity at a time. If you want to watch a movie, don’t scroll social media. If you want to spend time with your friends, don’t text other people. Just create a profile at AppBlock and block distractions. Put away your phone for a while, enjoy the present moment and focus on the activity you’re doing.
Let’s build a new habit. Everyday go for a walk for at least 15 minutes without your phone. Just enjoy nature, focus on your thoughts, the weather, people around you. No phone, no music, no audiobooks, just you and the outside world.
Morning without a phone
What is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning? Checking social media, checking e-mail, checking text messages? Try to start your day offline and for at least one hour after awakening don’t use your phone. AppBlock can help you with this. Just set up a profile for one hour after awakening and block apps you usually use in the morning.
Focus on your meal
Are you often ordering food instead of cooking for yourself? Block the apps for ordering food in time of breakfast, lunch or dinner with AppBlock. Cooking for yourself is not just a cheaper or mostly even healthier way of eating, but it’s a great ritual. Enjoy the preparation of your meal and don’t get distracted. And of course then enjoy eating the meal without scrolling social media, playing games or watching videos.
The last thing 80% of people see before they go to sleep is the screen of the mobile phone. 50% of people are postponing sleep because of their phone or TV show. Block social media, games or other distracting apps for one hour before you go to sleep with AppBlock. Instead of staring into the screen of your phone, try to spend the time before bed better. Maybe read a book, write a diary or meditate.
