The distraction economy is spending tons of money to distract you and keep you addicted you to the dopamine rush that various social media sites and apps give you. These companies have hired several PhDs, sociologists, psychiatrists to figure out how to get you addicted to your phone and their apps.
If you want to be really productive, you must turn off your phone notifications, and you should also consider installing the Moment app to track and analyze your screen time.
Similarly, it would be better to check your email only 2-3 times a day rather than answering your inbox after every few minutes. This is because, just because an email that’s at the top of your inbox is only the most recent one, but our mind games us into thinking that it may also be the most urgent one when that often isn’t the truth. The cost of short attention spans and switching time and again from one task to another is massive when it comes to your health, success, sanity, and productivity.
