In guessing by 'Flight Mode' you mean 'Airplane Mode' but for me it has an important other meaning. Checking Notifications can be a form of avoidance for stressful tasks.

Yes, I mean Airplane mode.

If you check notifications as a response to stress, you can form a bad habit.

Trigger – stress.
Response – check notifications.
