Being bombarded with a constant stream of messages is a First World Problem but it is a very real one.
Not only endless notifications but more importantly the pull of the Twitter and Facebook streams is a real issue for some of us. It is difficult to tell people to turn our phones off in this day and age, but turning off data means you can still be contacted by your nearest and dearest, but the lure and distraction of the alternative digital world is abated for a while.
When you *really need* to tweet or check Facebook, you can just turn it back on again.
Have a mindful day…
