DO YOU USE YOUR CELL FIRST THING IN THE MORNING? While you sleep, your brain is processing, problem-solving, and creating. ⁠ ⁠ When you wake in the morning, it is tying up loose ends and filing and finishing up projects. ⁠ ⁠ By picking up your phone, you cut that incredibly important process short. ⁠ ⁠ "According to Dr. Nikole Benders-Hadi, 'The information overload that hits [you] before you're fully awake interferes with your ability to prioritize tasks.' - ⁠ ⁠ In other words, throughout the day, we get distracted much quicker and mess up our productivity by checking our smartphone first thing in the morning." (Jari Roomer - MEDIUM.com)⁠ ⁠ If you can wait 30-60 minutes before looking at your phone, you allow your brain to decide what you think about in the morning instead of your phone. ⁠ ⁠ Give your brain a chance to warm up for the day, close all the open folders and imagine what this day can bring. ⁠ ⁠ #smartphones⁠ #productivity⁠ #habits | Fairygodboss

Well, I have to admit, sometimes i am also guilty of prioritizing my phone. At work, we always use our smartphones. What I do to manage or balance this is, since I am working from home, i set up a 'working time' from 9:00 am to 7:00pm on weekdays. After that time, it is family/relaxation time. ( I am lucky because my boss and colleagues also practice this, so we all respect each others' family time). After 7pm, i don't check emails and other official business messages (unless it is very urgent). And during sleeping time, i literally un-plug my internet connection and put it back on the next day after I have re-charged and have fully awaken. Hope these tips could help :)

What the article says is ideal, unfortunately, most working women and men are glued to their phone most of the time, thus having less time for rest, family and other activities. Since the pandemic, more if not most people prioritize their phones. Dr. Nikole is right, that it interferes with our ability to prioritize our tasks. Same goes for people who work from home and overlaps their work time with their family time, the culprit, is of course, our smartphones.
