Life gets in the way
I need a digital detox
When I have nothing to say, I will send you email to delete. Every Tuesday.
Five things worth sharing:
I can’t believe it has been over a decade of me trying to unplug, disconnect, get offline, and I am still here. Thank god, I am not where I used to be, but how am I still here? Knowing is half the battle, perfection is the enemy of progress, etc. Whatever. Time for another digital detox, because life gets in the way.
The average American spends nearly 7 hours a day staring at screens. Communication professor Josh Misner shares the most important lessons learned from a decade of Screen Free Saturdays.
A quote to share:
“If you just watch things, just sit still and let the world exist in front of you - sometimes I swear that just for a second time freezes and the world pauses in its tilt. Just for a second. And if you somehow found a way to live in that second, then you would live forever.”
― Lauren Oliver, Pandemonium
