Turning off Notifications


Have you ever just stared at the little red numbers that accumulate on the inbox of your email? They seem to be constantly buzzing for our attention to see who emailed us back or to complete certain tasks. Some of these tasks are important, however I feel the most of them are not as urgent as they seem.

I have only recently turned off ALL of my notifications. I thought the world would burn down or I would miss out on an opportunity. I kept waiting… and waiting longer to get a phone call from someone who saidstocksnap_nm0yj0n192, “Where the hell have you been?!?.” Yet nothing came. Nothing happened. Then I had this odd thought of why the hell am I still OK?  Shouldn’t there be problems brewing? waiting to overflow into my life.

Yet nothing came. I enjoyed having the no red dot screaming at my subconscious for my attention. It seems I had been so caught up in what could happen if I didn’t respond to an email or not be constantly updated on social media.

There is an odd bliss to not being connected and being strained mentally between thousands of things. The lesson I learned. The internet world will keep turning even if I am not always there. I felt a little sad at first because I thought I wasn’t important enough to be asked where had I gone. Yet it was soon taken over by the thought of why the hell would I want to be yelled at for taking a break from notifications? Why do I always need to be updated on what is the new thing? I don’t need to be.

Notifications, although sometimes important, are not always needed.
