If I want to concentrate on anything, even just watching sports, I put the phone in another room
It makes a huge difference.
It’s sad how much attention phones take.
Even better if I am outside and reading when the phone is insane.
Better still when I am at Rites of Spring and Twilight Covening in the Berkshires and my phone can’t even connect.
Phones are wonderful things for stuff like GPS, messages or phone calls but they are awfully distracting.
