A day without the internet
I spent 24 hours away from the internet.
Five things worth sharing this week:
When those in-between moments we rush to fill with the digital noise become available, time starts to feel infinite. The morning feels longer. The afternoon drags on. The evening goes on evermore so slowly. Suddenly, time is apparent; in your face. It passes painfully slow, suddenly so obvious, laughing victoriously at you. Notice me now, you hear time say.
The 24-hour digital detox has proven to boost productivity, help with focus, increase creative insights, and even reset your circadian rhythm, but what do you need to do to prepare for a 24-hour digital detox? The 5 Essential Items You Need for a DIGITAL DETOX
Psst… you don’t need to purchase anything for a successful digital detox, but it can make the experience more fun. It’s nice to have a disposable camera to take pictures with on your walk, or jot down thoughts and ideas on a piece of paper throughout the day. What you do need is free; put your devices away.
A quote I want to share with you:
“Those who make the worst use of their time are the first to complain of its shortness.”
— Jean de La Bruysre
There’s so much time in the day. We just need to make time to find it.
