@gonelf Interesting. I have my phone on DND a lot to manage this but generally try to not have any push notifications if I can help it. Especially since I'm usually in front of my computer screen anyway.
Digital minimalism has reformed my approach to smartphones. Feel more relaxed. I even have separate android app to block the notifications that I cannot disable on Android (ie. screenschot taken notification)
@abadesi I have muted almost everyone. Only i follow my favourites. and push notifications turned on for them. Instagram push notifications are really annoying one. There's no need to waste our time just looking at someone's icecream pic. 😄
Many are enabled by default so I don't necessarily reject them but I don't pay attention to them either. The only welcome dings are text messages, AirBnB messages/bookings, WhatsApp messages, Messenger messages, and iCal alerts that I set up. Instagram DMs and Strava also send me banner/bubble notifications, and honestly I'm a sucker for the Strava ones, but I need to turn them off (and will do so today). I do use the number bubbles for email apps, Remindres, and WhatsApp group chats - I ignore them until I want to read them.
