Shawn after talking about family dinner and interruptions:
That’s why, for the month of February (at least) during the evening hours between 5:00 until 7:30 pm, both my wife and I are putting our phones in Do Not Disturb and leaving them in another room.
I have DND on all the time except for my wife sending me text messages. That means when I take my phone out of my pocket I don’t get randomly annoyed by things and I have to be intentional when I’m not hanging with the kids.
My iPad has no notifications except for Things and all that can bug me about is my daily shutdown routine.
The freedom you get when you cut random distractions is amazing.
