Turn Off Alerts and Push Notifications
The ping you hear every time a text, like, or tweet lands in your inbox triggers the production of brain chemicals that crank your excitement. “We’re conditioned to become happy when a message comes in, which is why it’s so hard to resist checking it immediately,” she says. Break the association by turning off nonessential audio notifications and alerts. Then check your inboxes at set intervals, like every 30 minutes or every few hours, depending on what you need to get done that day. This way you’re in control of your device, not the other way around.
