Is one of the biggest lies that we can tell ourselves throughout the day. The truth is that we are simply prioritizing other activities over what may actually need to be done. Leading to more time wasted during the day, "longer" working hours, and less time doing something that you might enjoy more.
It is unfortunately quite easy to say that you are just going to stop for a minute and look through instagram or watch this quick video, but soon enough its been an hour and you haven't actually done anything productive.
It may sound cliché, but the first step is acknowledging that this could be you.
A great way to see how much time your wasting is to take a look at our screen time calculator:
This is a firsthand way to understand how much time you are possibly devoting to non productive activities. You can break this down in your settings to see which applications are taking up the most of your time.
Throw your phone into the ocean! Just Kidding, but there are ways to spend your time better without your device present. Our Phone Detox Program, is a great FREE first step in understanding how you can work with technology and how nice it feels to not have your phone on you 24/7.
Do your research.
There are many books out there, such as the one written by friend of SLNT, Thatcher, that dive deep into how we are constantly trying to "multitask" and are losing productivity. (Not paid, just like supporting people and initiatives that help create barriers around excessive device use. We're also a fan of The Art of Impossible by Steven Kotler)
Drawing on research in psychology, neuroscience, and mindfulness, The Twelve Monotasks provides a clear and accessible plan for life in the twenty-first century. Practice resisting distractions and building focus by doing the things you already do—like reading, sleeping, eating, and listening—with renewed attention. For example, the next time you go for a walk, don’t try to run an errand or squeeze in a phone call, but instead, notice the cool breeze on your face and the plants and birds that may cross your path. Immerse yourself in the activity and let time melt away, even if you’re only actually out for 20 minutes. Notice how much clearer your head feels when you return home. This is the magic of monotasking.
Thatcher Wine’s The Twelve Monotasks will help you do one thing at a time, and do it well, so you can enjoy all of your life!

Music is a necessity for me. My i-pod needs protection also, as my info is on it as well as my music. This sleeve fits it perfect.
I had to upgrade my phone and was extremely concerned with the 5G capabilities. This bag completely blocks ALL signals. I place my phone in my bag when I go to bed at night! Would 100% not only purchase again, but would purchase for friends/family, too! 5 stars!!
Perfect for blocking signals and also a day on the boat. 10/10 definitely recommend.
A must have for anyone whom privacy is important 5 star product
Thank you guys for supporting the fight for our right to privacy and combating mass surve.. Keep up the good work, the bag is amazing quality and I love the privacy stickers. Thanks a lot SLNT
I bought 4 Faraday Silent Pockets after reading about car fob venerability. I feel must more secure now. Get yours today to stop thieves from duplicating your fob’s signal anywhere!
I absolutely love my backpack I purchased… we need to protect our privacy now more than ever. I don’t travel without this & neither should you 😎
This is definitely a great bag for your phone. It sure seems to block everything I have tried to throw at it. Will be purchasing more!
Seems to work as expected. Hope to never do a hard test. Feel my backups are now well protected.
I purchased the SLNT pocket that an iphone 11 with an Otter Box fits in. The quality of the finished product is HIGH. I'm not addicted to my phone, so this allows me to place the phone in the pocket before traveling about daily without dropping digital crumbs along the way that could be used to reverse engineer my personal movements, locations and destinations with greater ease. I value my privacy due it being a fundamental human right despite what any judge or agency claims to the contrary.
I was very pleased to realize that this particular SLNT fits into my back pants pocket!!! The width is 'just right'. Now that's attention to detail. This is my 3rd SLNT and I recommend them to a lot of folks. Most have never heard of such a product, let alone the reason to have one and use it.
To anyone considering these products, as others have said, just get it! We live in an age where we need it. Location tracking is digital stalking. I really appreciate that some dirtbag won't be able to pull info out of my device either. Thank You SLNT, nice job.
Excellent quality, handsome, fit well, I like them and use them. Good to have protection.
Live in a condominium area. Thank you for giving me back my privacy!!
My laptop is now waterproof, padded and protected from solar flares, EMP's, hackers and trackers.
And it looks good too
4-5 starts.... well made, great function ...not only do I feel like I've helped secure my privacy but when I place the phone in the pocket I am able to disconnect from tech and have quiet private time with less stress and fewer distractions. Psychologically its been a great aid to me.
The Silent Pocket is a fantastic accessory, I am sleeping better with lack of EMF in the room and knowing that my privacy is literally in my hands.
Shipping took very little time, very happy!
