Notifications can be a distraction. They often interrupt a train of thought. If you are being notified of non-urgent information that you would likely learn of anyway later, you probably want to reduce your notifications. With iOS devices it’s easy to review all of your notifications. Just click Settings and then Notifications to scroll through all notification settings. You will note how many you already have turned off and can hopefully turn off others. Being from Oklahoma, I only need two notifications: severe weather warnings and OKC Thunder tip offs.
