It’s for your own good. Cut these things out of your day and you’ll see gains in productivity–not to mention happiness.

Every day, make the commitment not to:
1. Check my phone while I’m talking to someone.
You’ve done it. You’ve played the, “Is that your phone? Oh, it must be mine,” game. You’ve tried the you-think-sly-but-actually-really-obvious downwards glance. You’ve done the, “Wait, let me answer this text…” thing.
Maybe you didn’t even say, “Wait.” You just stopped talking, stopped paying attention, and did it.
