Inspired by Cal Newport’s new book, Digital Minimalism, I’m seven days into a 30-day digital detox of no podcasts, social media or blogs.
It’s amazing. I even have started going on evening or morning walks—by myself, sans headphones.
These 30-minute sessions with just my thoughts made me recognize how rarely I just think. Guess what? Thinking is good. I’m finding myself making better decisions and being less stressed overall.
So today, risk being bored a bit. Put away your phone. Turn off the podcast. And, get lost in thought. You’ll be surprised at what comes up.
