Finally 3 weeks of from job! And the weather here in Norway just keeps on being awesome, around 30 degrees celsius and sunny, sunny, sunny. It’s one of the warmest and dryest summer in the last 100 years. As it seems to be all around the northern parts of the world right now.
After my last trip to the Atlantic Road, I want to travel more and discover new places. So I’m sitting here in the backyard chilling in the shade, listening to some summer tunes and planning my next trip.
Not sure yet where it’s going to be, but some where here in Norway. As I’m wanting to see and experience more of the mountains and west coast of Norway. And definitely more awesome waterfalls!
For the last week I have been training up a new coworker who has been so distracted at every single little alert and notification that pops up. Seeing this and feeling how annoying it has been tying to work with and talking to someone that constantly looks at the phone every time it makes a little sound or has to open an email as soon as the notifications pops up got me thinking and reflecting about how I handle this.
I have to admit that I too easily get distracted by the notifications I get. I have always thought that I don’t let my phone get in my way, but reflecting and thinking on this I have to admit that I also check my phone every time some thing pops up.
Thinking about it I have almost all notifications on.
Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Messenger, Flicker, Instagram, YouTube, email and almost all other apps on my phone.
And this is not how I want it! It feels like the phone have control over me instead of me having control over the phone.
So starting from today I have turned of notifications for all the apps, only have messages and Messenger on, and I have logged out of all the sosial media apps.
By doing this I’m hoping to get control over my phone and my life, not wasting time and spending more quality time with my familiy and concentrating on my photography.
Wish you all a happy Sunday!
