Phone Intention

November 22, 2021

I’ve been trying to be more intentional when using my smartphone. I don’t mind carrying a supercomputer with me wherever I go, but I’ve been finding myself looking at it compulsively a little too much for my taste, and this is even without any social media or notification-heavy apps on it.

I already use a tool to block a Reddit client I use, allowing me to prevent the app from launching for 24 hours after I use it for a few minutes a day. But I don’t want to rely 100% on blocking. I want to deal with the compulsive behavior, and the best way to handle that is mindfulness.

I have some variations of the image for different devices. If you want one set up for a different aspect ratio, email me at hello [at] theindustriousrabbit [dot] com and put the phrase Hey, Bamboo! in the subject line with what you’re looking for.
