How to Gain 86 Hours Every Month

We now spend a third of our day on our mobile phones. Here is a 3-step system to start living phone-free.

If you enjoy these emails, you can get access to all my productivity hacks (300+ hacks) here.

The average adult spends 2 hours, 51 minutes on their smartphone every day.

Here are 3 rules I follow to gain those 86 hours back:

  1. Out of Sight, Out of Touch Never keep the phone in your pocket (I put mine in the backpack). You can put it in a drawer or a different room

  2. No Notifications Have your phone always on silent. It should only ring for calls (which are not often). No blipping to take your attention away

  3. No Multi-Phoning When using your phone, do it deliberately. Don‘t use it when eating lunch, drinking coffee or talking to someone). When you use your phone, ONLY use your phone

These 3 simple hacks will help you get those hours back every week.

What other things can you accomplish with all that free time? ;)
