scheduling when you ll be mindless on social media and spend time creating ways to let the tools do the work you want them to do in the other time Likewise, the suggestions for a digital detox are easy enough and some of the other ideas, including don t put apps on your phone, are things I ve been doing and finding to be valuable, for sure More on this one soon It doesn t necessarily tread new ground, as How to Break Up with Your Phone The 30 Day Plan to Take Back Your Life and others like it do thisbut I guess since they re by women, y know flag 8 likesLike see review Melanie I ve read 3

we re drawn in we feel guilty, as I did the other night, about being too weak to just shut it off and look away The perfect antidote to that guilt is Cal Newport s Digital Minimalism Newport skips the guilt noting that we didn t ask for this and really could not have been prepared for it and challenges to ask ourselves what am I trying to do when I use this technology and is this the best way to serve that goal Build a philosophy around your tech use and you ll use your tech wisely I m trying, and this book is helping flag 1 likeLike see review Anya Mushakevich rated it it was amazing Jan 01,
