#63: Decluttering My Phone for Focus and Productivity

Make your devices work for you, not against you.

Do you have too many apps on your phone and barely use half of them?

Do you dread the chaos aka your home screen?

Does your wallpaper no longer spark joy?

Perhaps it's time to make your phone work for you, not against you.

I followed some of the tips from the following videos to set up my phone so it can set me up for success. 😉

The major things I did though are:

  • Delete apps I no longer use
  • Add my most used (and loved) apps on my home screen, as well as inspirational stuff (Bible verses, my goals and reminders for the year, widgets of my Pinterest vision board)
  • Set up the scheduled summary for my notifications so I can batch reading and checking my messages
  • Customize my focus modes (specifically my Do Not Disturb and Work modes)
  • Switch up my wallpapers and added handy widgets on my home screen (one for viewing scheduled events and tasks for the day, one for capturing todos, and one for capturing ideas)
  • Delete old text messages and emails to free up space
