The option you need on your phone settings more often to avoid being distracted or interrupted 24/7/365—the last precious sanctuary you have before your real life and digital life become one.
If you’ve set your phone to airplane mode the night before, you won’t be inundated with alerts, breaking news, and messages when you wake up in the morning—a good habit to start the day right, when you speak to God first before you read your SMSes and e-mails.
