A quiet Saturday morning = perfect time to rearrange my homescreen. Got rid of Twitter and Instagram, they are now hidden in a folder on page 2. May delete them someday soon. I noticed that I‘ve not used them much lately, Twitter is an endless pit of anxiety and bad news anyway, and Instagram is just ads now. Amaroq stays, Headspace is back. The only app to still show notifications is Mail. I got rid of my Gmail account on here too.

It’s important that I pause and analyse my feelings towards the tools I use and how they impact my life. I’ve tried to notice when I was feeling stressed because of notifications or social media pressure and how I could soothe this stress down with a few tweaks.

The only remaining sound notifications are: phone, Whatsapp and Signal. Mail is silent but still shows the number of undread ones, even if I’m thinking about disabling that soon. All other apps are silent / not showing anything.


@mcpaccard I realized that nothing was as urgent as what I'm living in the instant, and I feel like I'm not less reliable than before : I still check my phone several times an hour so I can just call back usually
