This is my most favorite-ist article ever. Thank you so much for sharing.
This topic definitely needs more light! I too removed push notifications for everything except for texts and I felt I could breathe again. 🙌🏼

<3 glad to share the experience. Life is stressful, I figured if I can share my solution then maybe someone else can benefit.

And YES to turning off most push notifications. Getting over the anxiety of removing work-related stuff from my phone was huge as well. Reassuring myself that people at work have my phone number and can page me if something is urgent made getting rid of Slack and email much easier and I felt so much better afterward.
