A couple of months ago, I read this article that urged me to turn off my phone’s battery percentage so I can have a more positive lifestyle. At first, I thought that it was insignificant and more stressful because you’re just guessing how long your phone will actually last. But I dared to do it, because, why the heck not? Maybe it will work?
And it did. It’s a very simple trick that helps you reduce your stress levels and keeps you focus on more important things albeit in your phone or your life. To sum it up, it’s just one less thing to worry about.
The moment I disabled the battery percentage in my iPhone, I felt that this is just a wrong move. Why would I want to see an undetailed battery bar? Having my battery percentage felt like a much easier way to know the status of my smartphone.
But after some time, I got used to it and didn’t care much about my phone’s battery. Instead of constantly looking at my phone’s battery every couple of minutes and getting worried about how quickly my battery percentage was dropping, I just didn’t have the ability to worry about it. It felt like my phone is telling me that I didn’t need to care about the percentage. I realized that it doesn’t matter whether I have 80% or 35% remaining on my phone, I just need to know if I have to plug it in or not. Knowing the exact amount of battery is too much information.
Also, there’s no need to worry if your phone will suddenly shutdown because you’ll be notified if you’re down to 20% or 10%. But what do you think? You should also give it a try.
