Log Off For Better Productivity

Constant distractions are a productivity killer. “Digital detoxes” are becoming more prevalent as people become more aware of the negative effects of posting, scrolling, texting, and message-checking.

Smartphones provide a means by which to communicate, 24/7 access to calendars and to-do lists, and a connection to the outside world. It’s good to be connected, but too much interaction can overwhelm even the most social individuals. Working more isn’t connected to being more productive; If quality over quantity is the goal, it may be time to walk away from the smartphone.

Tech-free zones allow us to put down our smartphones without feeling guilty. Designate a certain area of the home, like the bedroom, as a phone-free zone. Worried you won’t wake up? Invest $8 in an alarm clock with a battery backup. Plug your phone in by the front door so it’s ready to go when you are and get a good night’s sleep.

Putting your phone away while you are eating allows you to connect in a more meaningful way with those around you. Leave it in the car while you eat in a restaurant and instead of scrolling while your significant other is in the restroom, simply look up and see what’s going on in the room.
