The default of phone screens sleeping if they aren't touched every couple of seconds I believe contributes a lot to their addictive behaviour. Using a phone as a device to enable thinking (like a book) involves taking in information from the device and then processing that information internally. The fact that phones by default sleep/dim after several seconds continously beheads the second part of that process. You have to stop processing and think about tapping your phone to wake it back up.

@jrc03c @jere so far it's been fine, although I realized my boot partition was too small when I got to the bootloader step, so I had to restart and delete my main partition (along with all my other install work), and then resize the boot partition. I'm now in the process of redoing the steps after that.
