- turn off all lock screen notifications (this is better for privacy anyway)
- turn off vibrate and sound notifications, I leave badges for important things like messaging apps
- turn off notifications for apps that really don’t need it
Nathan Toups makes a case for a dumber phone with great recommendations overall.
One thing I would add from personal experience1 is to make very conscious use of the silence/mute switch on phone.
No sound/viberation 99% of the time, but if I need and enable sound I also have the super annoying keyboard sounds enabled by default (so I don’t forget to revert to silent ASAP).
