Good alternative Alfred, I’m afraid Do Not Disturb isn’t enough for me though — I don’t trust myself and the risk of missing an important call is outweighed by the positive effects this habit has on my mental health ☺

I’m pretty big on natural rhythms and I just think a 24/7 availability is pretty damaging. My prediction for the future of online spaces is ‘restriction’ over ‘access’, and not the forced kind either, the ‘happily accepted and welcome relief’ kind.

Perhaps the greatest gift that we can give to each other is a greater understanding of ourselves.
