    I might have to come up with a list but before I’m 36 (35 next month so wouldn’t work) these are great and exciting, I love the hands free idea, gift and lots of the others. Enjoy completing your list xx

      Definitely everyone needs to schedule in as I call it ‘off the grid’ time. Even more so around people. I’ve come to love the iPhone ‘do not disturb’ button that silences everything (even vibrate) and puts your phone to answer machine unless rung twice in quick succession.
      I also had a time where I allowed myself to check my notifications on fb but banned newsfeed scrolling!
