I used to be like that. Checking my phone everytime it makes a sound. But then I realize, most of the people on the other end of the phone wouldn’t mind waiting and as you said, if it’s urgent or important, they would have called instead of texting or sending a message.

I don’t turn off my notifications. I just ignore it when I’m in the middle of something. I guess I just came to a realization that if I keep doing entertaining my phone everytime it makes a sound, I will end up getting controlled by my phone instead of the other way around. It gets easier to ignore the sound with time.

Well said! Thank you for sharing!
