We'll I don't switch it off, I just simple put it away to keep me from getting distracted. I find it really difficult to stay focus when my phone is just within my reach, I constantly browse through social media until I wear myself out. It really frustrates me. So when I pull on my serious study mode I just silent the phone and put it away. Works all the time!!. Task gets done in no time.
Well, yes some times I find it very useful to switch off my phone in order not to have any disruptions and be able to focus on my task.
I do not switch off the phone but I focus when I need to.
No,but it is a good idea to help me focus.
I do, sometimes. It depends on what I'm working on. If I don't want to miss a call, I just put it on silent so I can return my calls later.
Yes , sometime I need to focus hard so I switch it
Yes, sometimes I turn the internet off to focus more. Especially WP sometimes can be really disturbing.
Do you ever switch off your mobile phone to help you focus?
Yes, if I need to do something important with a deadline almost over (out of time) I switch off my mobile phone and I hang a post-it on the the desk or the screen side with the words « Not disturb »
sometimes i give my phone to mother
sometimes I do but this days is no easy switch off the phone, so sad
