Excerpt from Knowledge@Wharton -- "It sounds so simple. It sounds like all we have to do is just say, 'No, I’m not going to use this. I’m going to put it away for a certain number of hours.' That’s obviously the first thing to try to do. The other thing you can do on smartphones is sort of de-fang them. You can make them a little less potent. Take off all the sounds that tell you that there’s a new email. Remove push notifications. Make sure that the phone isn’t telling you when to pick it up, that you’re deciding it’s time for me to pick it up."
