Since most people who read this (and the person writing this) are glued to their smartphones, it seems sensible to optimize them to serve us.
Ever notice a difference between what we know we “should” do what we actually do? One way to overcome this is to create systems using the device you’re probably holding right now.
Here are a few personal examples:
1) I should incorporate mindfulness –> use the Breathe app that reminds me 5x/day to “Take a few mindful breaths”
2) I should take more “me” time –> actually schedule time with/for myself, rather than hoping I’ll have time left over when everything I “have to” do is done
3) I shouldn’t sit for 8 hours straight (“Sitting is our generation’s smoking”) –> Set an hourly reminder in my phone to stand up, stretch, and do short anti-sitting exercises
What should you do that you could use systems to start doing?
