My head almost exploded yesterday… System overflow. I had headache, and wasn’t because of the weather change.
Today I made a digital detox, after 9am I switched off every device, no email, no wifi, no 3G – for 8 hours. Grabbed a book and a pen and I went to the downtown for a lunch.
According to a research, we have more than 10000 impacts daily from the environment. Instinctively I reached for my phone at least 5 times, and then I realized that nothing is happening anyway… Crazy world.
I had a few hours free, and tried to collect the online things I manage, no wonder that people go crazy:
- 8-10 e-mail inbox
- 14 Facebook Page
- 3 Twitter account
- 5 Instagram account
Even though most of the push notifications are off, so is every 10 minutes something beeping.
We should have at least 1 day weekly without online connection. Actually, we did not miss anything …
