Matt: So what are some specific things people can do to optimize their phone’s setup. Any actionable advice?
Niklas: I’ll give you what I think are sort of the 80/20, or the big three.
The first thing is that I would check your notifications for all the apps that you have. Just go through the whole notification list of your different apps and basically disable them, for most. Think hard about which ones you really need and what kind of notifications are best for that.
I think I ended up with something like eight apps that actually have notifications enabled, where it’s useful to get the interruption because it’s time-sensitive. And most of the others, I just disabled.
So the first thing is, check your notification settings and just be thorough in where you really need notifications and what purpose they serve with each app.
