Tech Sabbath

As a friend of mine posts every week, the work isn’t done, but it’s time to pause.

This summer, I blocked incoming email notifications on my phone, and I’ve kept it that way since. I’ve also moved more and more in the direction of batching emails (only diving in to handle a bunch at a time a few times a day) and keeping my computer mostly off on weekends. It’s done wonders for my focus and attention.

The same goes for Thanksgiving, only more so. That’s the big holiday in my family, and I’ll be spending it with them rather than on screens. More noticings next week.
