It must be the season or something. I feel like there's just too much noise. There are too many distractions. This is the home screen on my iPhone 6plus phablet BEFORE I made the change.
This is my NEW home screen on my iPhone 6Plus phablet. I focused on only keeping apps that I 1) use every day or should use every day, or 2) apps that I really enjoy or want to prioritize up in my life. Somehow, Amazon.com has made the cut but they just make it too freaking easy to get all those shopping errands (household items, diapers, etc...) done with 1 thumb. And, dudes and dudettes, I love Words with Friends. :) Turned off the notifications on most of the apps. I just don't want to know. I have to do that to email too. I generally don't enjoy emails, text messages, ... actually, I DESPISE Facebook messenger, and voicemails.
Screen #2 = Random stuff I may keep.
Most of this (80%)... will get deleted if I don't try it within a few months. Even if I do try it, if I don't use it again, it will get deleted. A few items are just "hanging out" here. The Settings and the Calculator are exceptions - it's just I don't want them on the main home screen.
Screen #3 = Evil stuff I want to do a LOT LESS of.
And yes, there's our baby Lentil's face there, reminding me that there's much MUCH more to life than social media or online videos.
There REALLY is such a thing as TOO MUCH. Too much noise in the world today. We're all paying attention to the wrong details about what matters. We'll see if this helps me. I'll report back in a few weeks on this.
