The Distraction-Free Phone

Mike Schmitz writing for The Sweet Setup:

A distraction-free phone is not a “dumb phone” (although there’s nothing wrong with that approach if you think it would help). It is simply a phone where you have dictated the terms of engagement and all your apps and notifications play by _your_ rules.

I’ve always found this concept interesting. It really goes into a lot of what I’ve been reading in Digital Minimalism, which speaks on subtracting technology from your life to start then evaluating how you’d use an app, service, or device once you reintroduce it back in top your life.
