And people can reach me with a phone call.
1. Get back to your normal habit after exception happens;
2. Are they really exceptions? If you consistently cannot stick to your schedule, then you may want to change your schedule to adapt to the situation
I propose this. Disable all notifications except phone calls. If someone writes you an SMS or messanger message, it is safe to answer the next day. If it is urgent, they will call you anyway. Leave it that way for the entire day. You can answer all of the problems in bulk when you decide it is time for it. In the evening put the phone away to charge in other room. If someone calls – cool. If noone calls – also OK. Having the phone away will make sure, you don’t reach for it mindlessly. With the sound on, you won’t feel the anxiety that you miss important calls.
Most of my expected communication comes by text. I have an iPhone. I’m fairly sure Android can do the same. I turned off sound and vibrate. I decided on whose texts I wanted to know about immediately.
I added them to my Contacts. I gave each of them a special ring tone. (There are only two for me.)
And I set Emergency Bypass on for them.
This means even if my phone is in silent mode, I still get notifications of those texts. I would think that if they called me I would get notification of that too (they just don’t call).
Everyone else who texts can wait until I’m willing to read and respond. Calls… they can leave a voicemail.
I’m good with this.
If I ever really don’t want any sound disturbances – I turn the phone off.
